New Survey Finds Couples Who Travel Together Are More Satisfied
February 07, 2013 5:00 PM
As the travel industry ramps up to Valentine’s Day with special offers and packages, a new survey by TravelEffect.com commissioned by the U.S. Travel Association finds that instead of buying jewelry and chocolate, couples consider planning a trip. The survey says couples who travel together are significantly more satisfied with their relationships, enjoying better sex and improved romance long after the trip ends.
“What we've long known anecdotally, we're now proving through authoritative research: travel has a positive effect on relationships," said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, which launched the “Travel Effect” campaign this month to boost awareness of travel's benefits. “Couples who travel together have healthier, happier relationships compared to those who do not travel together. This Valentine's Day, couples should strengthen their relationships in a meaningful way and take a trip together.”
Key research findings include: Couples prefer taking a short trip to receiving gifts with nearly two-thirds of those surveyed (63 percent) saying a weekend getaway is more likely to spark romance than large or small gifts. Just a little over one-third (36 percent) viewed receiving small gifts the same way, and only 15 percent rated getting big gifts like jewelry as important to improving romance.
Traveling alone together also sparks romance with more than eight in 10 (83 percent) of those who travel as a couple saying the romance is still alive in their relationship, and fully seven in 10 (72 percent) of the couples surveyed believe traveling inspires romance. Couples who travel together report having a better sex life than those who don’t with three-quarters (77 percent) of respondents who travel as a couple saying that they have a good sex life, compared to 63 percent of couples who do not travel together. More than one in every four couples (28 percent) say their sex life improved after traveling together and of those, 40 percent say sex together is permanently better after travel.
According to the survey, couples who travel together have more time for intimacy and sex with a majority of them (59 percent) saying that being more intimate is an important reason to vacation together. Among couples that did not take a trip together in the past year, nearly one in four (23 percent) say they "do not have enough time for intimacy and sex."
“Couples who take time to vacation alone together at least once each year report happier, healthier relationships overall compared to those who do not travel as couples," said Pam Loeb, principal of Edge Research, which conducted the telephone survey of 1,100 adults between Nov. 26 and Dec. 9, 2012. The survey ensured a census representative sample of adults in relationships, with quotas on gender, age and region.
