It is essential to choose a destination that you both like. In this sense, it is very useful for everyone to write on a sheet which cities or countries they dream of knowing. If there is any coincidence then it is decided, if it is not, what you have to do is negotiate and yield.
One of the tools to select one destination or another is the budget. Jointly investigate the prices of tickets, rentals, lodgings, excursions and others. With this information it will be much easier to make a decision.
2. Share expenses

Once again communication comes into play, since both must define the total budget they have for the trip. Knowing how much money you have is easier to find hotels and all other services that suit your needs.
3. A midpoint in the lodging
It is very important to define what are the expectations that each one has regarding the lodging. You must establish what are the essential and indispensable requirements for each one, such as cleaning, location, price, including meals and others.Gergely Zsolnai / Shutterstock.com
Many couples tend to underestimate this point thinking that it does not matter where they stay, since it is only for the night, but then discomforts may occur if you are not comfortable with the place.
4. An itinerary or relaxed vacation?
This will depend on what you both want and aim for as your vacation. It is recommended that you decide in advance the tourist areas of the city that you are going to visit and determine what you would like to know on this trip and which ones you will leave for a next opportunity.pio3 / Shutterstock.com
If you both like the idea of following strict itineraries there will be no problem but, if this is not the case, it is necessary that you find a midpoint, so that you can both relax and enjoy the holidays.
5. Do not give in completely
One of the biggest secrets of lasting relationships is mutual respect. The idea is that both make and visit the places they like best and not that only one of those involved decides to go.g-stockstudio / Shutterstock.com
You must find balance and the time necessary to visit the most important places and that you both want. For example, first you can go to the museum she always dreamed of knowing and then the local football stadium that he can't miss. It's all about giving, accompanying and enjoying.
6. Have fun as a couple
A trip is one of the best experiences that every human being can have, either individually, as a couple, with friends or as a family.
