How to Plan the Ultimate Surprise Trip

Have you been thinking about surprising your sweetheart with a romantic trip, but without them finding out what you’re preparing? Well, if you’ve already tried and failed or you never really know where to begin, we’ve got you covered. With only a few tips from our planning experts, you’ll get all the basic tips for planning the ultimate surprise trip that both of you will enjoy and remember forever.

Start planning months in advance
Timing is everything, which is why you should start planning your trip at least six months in advance. This is especially important if you’re planning a trip to another country or if you plan a New Year’s trip. The holiday season is the most popular time of the year for travelling, so you’ll want to make sure you book everything in time.

Researching the perfect destination, planning the budget, as well as maybe a few other surprises along the way, will take lots of time and meticulous planning. That's why you should start early on to avoid stressing out. Furthermore, you'll plan your annual vacation leave from work much easier if you let the bosses know months in advance when you want to have your time off, rather than letting them know at the last minute. Not only will you be able to plan everything slowly and without much fuss, but planning a trip months in advance will also allow you to get your tickets and accommodation at much lower prices.

Use your personal credit card
One of the easiest ways for your partner to find out about your surprise trip is by looking into your joint bank account. Therefore, if, for example, you want to make this New Year's trip to Australia a surprise, secure your Sydney New Year’s Eve 2019 tickets in time by using your personal credit card, instead of the one connected to your joint account. This way you’ll be the only one with insight into your expenditures and incomes, and your significant other won’t be suspicious of your actions.

Limit the number of people who’ll help you
A surprise trip organization will require help from a few other people. If your partner is employed and has a tight schedule, you’ll need to contact their assistant, a secretary or somebody who has insight into their itinerary, so that you can know the exact time when they’ll be available to travel. However, while you’ll need to inform those people, be sure not to reveal your plans to many other friends, family or relatives because the information can easily slip out at the least convenient moment and ruin the entire surprise.

Give out only the phone number you use
Your trip to Sydney, Thailand or maybe some other exotic destination should stay hidden until the moment you reach the airport, so don't let a small glitch like your phone number, give you away. Instead of giving your home phone number to the travel agent, be sure you use your cell phone if your sweetheart doesn't have the habit of picking up when you're out of reach. Alternatively, use your office number or an email that nobody but you has access to.

Planning a surprise trip is a wonderful way to do something special for your loved one. However, not every surprise journey actually ends up as a surprise because somewhere along the way the information becomes too obvious and you don’t manage to keep it only to yourself. To be sure you avoid that inconvenience this time, keep the trip info to yourself and only those people you absolutely must reveal it to, such as assistants and secretaries. Start planning in time, use separate credit cards and don’t forget to give out your personal phone number or email to make sure nobody but you knows all the details until you’re basically already at your destination.
