Valentine’s day is a
special day on the year in which we express our love and affection to those

Here are a few tips to help plan your romantic weekend:
Synchronize Your Schedules– If you are planning this
trip as a surprise, be sure to check that your significant other has time to go
away with you for the weekend. Check their work schedule and be sure they will
be able to have off for the weekend. You might even want to request that their
boss let them off. If it is not a surprise you can simply ask them to take off
of work for the weekend.
Book the flight– It is best to book your travel
accommodations sooner rather than later. If you’ve been looking up the ticket
prices for a couple of weeks, be sure to clear your browsing history first.
This will ensure that you get the best price. Most websites save your browsing
history and increase the price based on your searches. If you are trying to

or through shared airplane miles. This will ensure that they don’t receive a
notification about your plans!

schedule and booked the flight it is time to plan your mini vacation. There are

will depend on what kind of activities you and your significant other enjoy.
