Thinking of taking a trip with your sweetheart? You might want to put some extra thought into the destination you choose. While you could easily agree on the bucket-list destination of both your dreams, the wrong destination could spell disaster, as a new study from The Couple’s Travel Guidebook shows.


Earlier this year, The Couple’s Travel Guidebook looked at a range of factors to determine which destinations might make couples feel more stressed when traveling together. The brand looked at factors like restaurant price index, with finances often straining relationships, no matter how new or old a relationship is; traffic inefficiencies that can make for stressful trips; and English proficiency scores, as lower scores can mean stress for monolingual couples.


Based on all this data, The Couple’s Travel Guidebook predicts the top five destinations where traveling couples are most likely to feel stressed and break up after their trip include Bangladesh, Mexico, Peru, Uganda and Oman. The top five destinations where traveling couples are least likely to feel stressed and break up after their trip, however, include the Czech Republic, Austria, Iceland, Finland and Lithuania.


The brand also found many popular honeymoon destinations ranked poorly in providing low-stress experiences for couples, including Costa Rica and Indonesia. Additionally, despite its romantic reputation, Italy was found to be the most likely European destination to cause visiting couples to break up.
