Most couples would love to go somewhere nice even just for a weekend now and then, but most of them worry about money, their jobs, their household and their children and always think that they have much more important things to do than take the time to relax properly and enjoy each others company. If your biggest concern regarding a romantic getaway is the budget, then you’ve come to the right place.
Nowadays there is such a variety of packages and offers for romantic holidays, weekends and trips that you could easily find one for a fraction of the usual price. The first thing to do is plan when to go. In order to get a better deal you will probably have to book the holiday much in advance. However, this way you can book three romantic weekend getaways for the price of one for example. Choose the time of the year and then think about the place. There are many different options – a city break, a countryside cottage stay, a sightseeing trip abroad, a night in a hotel for a special event in the city, etc.
Romantic getaways are important for many reasons, but above all they will give you something to look forward to and an opportunity to get away from the stress, your job and the household chores. Ideally, you can organize a long weekend when there’s a bank holiday and thus enjoy two full days of relaxation, spa and outdoor activities. Check online for deals – it’s easier to use a comparison website where you can fill in the budget you have, the desirable location and amenities and browse only the deals that fit your criteria. It’s always better to stick to the budget you can afford and find the best for that price, instead of browsing multiple results of hotels that you can’t afford, which can be quite frustrating.
It’s wiser to book your weekend getaway in the slow season as this will ensure lower prices and sometimes even less people. Consider that some websites offer incredible deals if you can leave in the last minute. This way you could go to an exotic location with included flights, accommodation and even food for half the usual price or even 1/3rd of it.
Another cheaper option is to take a road trip – this is an exciting and spontaneous way of traveling which will allow you to see many places you’ve never found the time to see. It might be a bit restricting in terms of the location, but it’s still better than nothing.
Your weekend getaway doesn’t have to include a long journey. You could book a hotel room in the nearby city and still enjoy the change of scenery. Do something new together with your spouse – go horseback riding, bowling or just organize a romantic picnic. You’d be surprised at how many affordable options you have. If the weather allows it then you could go camping – it’s a great experience for every couple, especially for the first time and it’s quite romantic too.
Just because you can’t afford to spend much money on romantic getaways it doesn’t mean that you should miss out on all the fun you could be having. In fact, with just a little browsing and word-of-mouth recommendation from friends, you could organize the perfect weekend – affordable, peaceful and romantic.
