Travel for two - advantages together

6 advantages of traveling in pairs

Which Advantages brings traveling in pairs with it? In the article Travel alone after several single trips, I've been writing about the advantages of traveling as a couple. Now I've been traveling in Africa for several weeks with my girlfriend and can now report specifically on the advantages of traveling as a couple. In this article, you will therefore find 6 good reasons for a vacation with a partner or a trip with a good friend. Let's go!

1. when traveling as a couple, you are never alone

When you're traveling the world alone for several months, there can be lonely days. Some people like it, others don't. Video calls via Skype and Facetime can help lonely travelers, but those who choose to travel as a couple are really never alone. Even if this can sometimes be both an advantage and a disadvantage, it's nice to always have someone by your side when you're traveling. Not to forget: When traveling as a couple, you also get your peace and quiet when you want it.

2. joint trip halves the price

If you travel alone, you usually pay significantly more for daily accommodation - whether it's a hotel, hostel or AirBnb. The advantage of traveling with a friend or partner is that the cost of a roof over your head can be almost halved. But it's not just accommodation where traveling as a couple has the advantage of saving costs. For example, traveling together also pays off when hiring a rental car, where the costs for both the rental and any damage to the car can be shared. The cost savings are a very important advantage of traveling as a couple.

3. planning together when traveling as a couple

There are the classic loners who spend their lives deciding everything for themselves. But most people long for a little security when making decisions of all kinds. Whether it's deciding on a destination, the right rental car or a nice place to stay - traveling as a couple has the great advantage of not having to decide anything on your own. This creates a bond and provides the necessary security with the nice side effect that no one is solely to blame if a bad decision is made.

4. travel together and feel safer

You never know a foreign country as well as your home country, which is why it is generally recommended that you familiarize yourself with foreign cultures and dangerous areas with high crime rates in advance. Traveling alone as a woman in particular harbors a number of dangers that can be avoided by traveling as a couple. Regardless of whether you are traveling with a friend or your partner - as a couple you are less likely to be approached in an intrusive manner and you rightly feel safer. The increased security is a valuable advantage of traveling as a couple.

5. get to know travel partners better

Traveling together is particularly valuable for the relationship between two people. Whether you are in a relationship or simply friends, traveling together intensifies your relationship and cannot be compared to living together in your hometown. When traveling, you are faced with challenges that you have to overcome together - from finding suitable accommodation to the next sightseeing spot. You get to know each other's personal preferences very well and each person gradually adapts better to the other. Traveling as a couple has the great advantage of being able to intensify a relationship in the long term.

6. learn new things through trip for two

Travel for two advantages of traveling together

Another important advantage of traveling as a couple is the fact that you get involved in new things more quickly, which your travel partner likes, but you don't so much. On our last trip, for example, I went horse riding for the first time. Riding a horse on the beach was never really on my personal to-do list, but it was a great experience that I would never have had in my life without my girlfriend. A clear sign that traveling as a couple also makes you think more outside the box. You get even more involved with the preferences of your travel partner and ultimately strengthen your personal relationship with each other.

So is traveling together worth it? If you decide to travel as a couple, you save money, increase your own security and intensify your relationship with your travel partner. These are advantages that traveling alone unfortunately does not offer.

  1. I like to travel alone sometimes, but I love traveling with my boyfriend the most. Can really agree with all the points here. Especially our camping trips with the camper I find romantic. Just the two of us sitting under the stars with our patio heater and chatting until the wee hours of the morning. Even though we've known each other for hyper long, I feel like I've learned something new about him every time. <3
