Couples who travel together have healthier, happier relationships compared to those who do not, according to a survey from the U.S. Travel Association. Couples in a romantic relationship report traveling together makes them significantly more likely to be satisfied in their relationships, communicate well with their partners, enjoy more romance, have a better sex life, spend quality time together and share common goals and desires.

Three key findings emerged from the survey:

  • Travel has long-term benefits for couples
  • Travel helps build and maintain relationships
  • Travel ignites romance and intimacy
