Top Holiday Destinations for Couples

Where do you want to go this year?

Travel is good for the soul and when it comes to your relationship it may good for that too.

One of the perks of being in a relationship is you have a built-in travel companion. A person who you want by your side when you’re looking to take a holiday from your regular routine. Vacations can be good for your relationship too. For new couples, it’s a way to share new experiences, and for couples who have been together a while, it’s a way to take a break from the day-to-day and reconnect.

In fact, one study found that couples who travel together are significantly more satisfied with their relationship than couples who do not:

  • 86% of travelling duos believe that the romance is alive and well in their relationship, compared to 73% of respondents who do not travel together.
  • 94% of those who travel as a couple reported feeling close to one another, compared to 86% of non-travelling couples.
  • 84% of respondents who travel with their partner believe they spend quality time together, compared to 70% of respondents who do not.

Travel Insurance Makes Three

You and your travelling companion may be better together when you’re on holiday, but three’s company when you vacation with travel insurance. The Government of Canada encourages travellers to get travel insurance when “you plan to go abroad - even on a day trip to the United States” because your government health insurance plan “may cover none, or only a small part, of the costs of your medical care abroad.”

This is an especially prudent reminder for Ontario travellers. As of January 1, 2020, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) no longer covers Ontario residents when they're travelling beyond the country’s borders.

Don’t let an injury or illness ruin the mood of your getaway. Whether you’re staying close to home or taking a trip that involves a flight, know that you'll both be covered wherever you go with travel insurance.
