You’ve decided that the two of you need some time away. You may have already renewed your vows and committed to each other. You’ve even gone so far as to go to ItsHot.com and found the perfect renewal bands.
Now, you want to make a romantic getaway on a budget that is unforgettable. Here are five ways to make that happen.
5 Ways to Make Your Romantic Getaway Unforgettable and Affordable
Make it Meaningful
A romantic getaway should be meaningful for both of you. That means, if you want to go to the Andes and learn about the Atacama peoples, but she doesn’t, don’t make that your romantic getaway.
Find something that will be meaningful to you both. One of the reasons you are together is that you share similar interests on some level. Find those similarities and look for a meaningful experience that will match those.
Meaningful experiences can be had in your own area or state. So, you don’t have to make a huge expense to go somewhere exotic. You can create that memorable romantic getaway and save your wallet.

Search engines today are a powerful resource to find getaways. In the past, you would have to call a travel agent or go to your local library to find information about destinations. Now, you can just open up a search engine, type in your keywords and hit the search button.
You can research romantic getaways in your hometown or find a place that’s thousands of miles away. Doing your research also helps you find the best price for your budget, too. These are very important if you are on a budget.
The internet can help you narrow down your options based on your budget, where you want to go, and what you want to do. You can even research special events in the area you’ll be visiting to take part in those experiences with your loved one.
Start Saving Now
If you’re planning your getaway for next year, start saving now. If you’re planning your getaway for this summer, definitely start saving now! B
y putting away a little bit of money on a regular basis, you’ll be able to afford a truly romantic getaway without having to worry about costs. You want your experience to be memorable with happy, romantic memories, not stressful worries about how you’re going to pay for everything.
Using your credit card to purchase tickets and then paying off the credit cards will also help build your credit.
Bring it With You
You should always have the right travel gear and equipment when you head out on an adventure, and most of the things you’ll need you can bring with you.
If you’re planning a glamping trip along the Appalachian Trail, you will need to do your research to see what the sites furnish and what you’ll want to bring. And of course don’t forget to create a special playlist so there’s a soundtrack to your adventure!
Songs are known for bringing memories including smells and feelings back as clearly as the day you experienced them. So you can use that to your advantage. When you hear a song from that playlist years later, it might take you back to the exact moment in time.
Bringing your own candles, food, or even bedding can help save your budget and create a homey feel wherever you are. Or you can download the first movie you went to with your loved one. With smart technology today, you’ll be able to watch it and recreate that tingly feeling when they first touched your hand.
Splurge on Experiences Not Stuff
When you’re researching, remember that the experience is more than what was bought. So splurge on special experiences during your romantic getaway instead of focusing on buying them things.
Small tokens are special, but don’t go all out on those things. Go all out on making this getaway something you’ll both remember for the rest of your lives. You’ll be excited to do another one, too. To make it a tradition each year or special holiday for you both.
It’s about the experience, not the cost, so a low cost experience is just as memorable for you both if you loved it. How much you spent isn’t what makes the getaway romantic, it’s what you did and how you felt that’s important.
