Travel Tuesday: Planning the Perfect Valentine’s Day Getaway

February 13, 2017

What’s more romantic than a surprise getaway with your sweetie? Nothing! Which makes it the perfect gift for your Valentine this year. Sweep your sweetheart off their feet this year with these helpful tips for planning your special trip for two.


Location, Location, Location

When it comes to romantic getaways, location is key. Pick a destination that has something for both of you, but keep in mind that this is your gift for them. If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, but they’re more of a city mouse, plan an urban adventure with a day trip to the country built in. While the gesture will be appreciated either way, it will be appreciated even more if you keep their likes and dislikes in mind.


Make sure you and your beloved have everything you need to hit the road (or air). Whether you’re planning a long weekend or a multi-week tour, the right luggage can make or break a trip. For a short trip, a lightweight shoulder bag will keep you looking stylish and ready-to-go. For longer trips (or over-packers) wheels are a must for keeping you, and everything you need, mobile.

Travel Ready Gift

Time together is a gift in and of itself, but sometimes it’s nice to throw in a something extra. The memories you make will last a lifetime, but why not invest in some insurance to capture your adventure together. Upgrade from the standard chocolate and flowers with a new camera. This gift that keeps on giving will be treasured now, and for years to come.
