Same Sex Relationships
Unfortunately for same sex couples not every vacation destination is as open and accepting as they could be. For this reason many travel agencies have opened with the goal to plan and book trips and vacations for gay couples. Knowing that where you are going is a place where you will be received with open arms is a comfort.
One of the more popular agencies, Out and About, offers vacation packages that include gay or gay friendly hotels, restaurants and local guides. Out and About also offers tour books that are searchable on their web page. These books are broken down between romance, adventure and even places that are open to only women or only men. Special trips to exotic places such as India or Africa are featured.
Another in demand travel agency is called Gay Travel. Also listed on-line, this agency offers gay and lesbian friendly planned trips around the world. They also corner the market on exclusive gay cruises. The site has a searchable database that can help you find gay owned and run businesses such as bed and breakfasts and hotels. Their most popular service is a do it yourself vacation planner. You tell them where, when and how and they will find you a vacation that has been tailor made.
Cruises are another ideal choice for a romantic getaway. Olivia Travel is an agency geared towards lesbians that list many commercial cruises that are gay friendly. The most sought after cruises have celebrity guests and have days ported at Olivia’s own private island, Half Moon Cay, in the Caribbean. Children are usually welcomed on Olivia cruises and you will be pleased to discover that nanny services are available when you and your sweetie want to have a night alone.
The fastest growing vacation trend is a trip up north to our neighbors in Canada. Many same sex couples plan their weddings in Canada and the nation has opened its arms to help make their special day truly unique. Deals can be found for you, your mate and your combined families at many hotels in Montreal, Toronto and Halifax. Lush spa packages by gay friendly staff are offered at many resorts.
