Surely you’ve heard of a destination wedding? You know, tying the knot in some tropical paradise such as Bali or Thailand or Hawaii. But have you heard of a “proposal holiday”? Yup, this is actually a thing.

To celebrate International Proposal Day (which was yesterday) we thought we’d shine the spotlight on this increasingly popular travel trend.

Of course, the idea of proposing to your boyfriend or girlfriend whilst away on a trip certainly isn’t anything new.

There’s been a long tradition of couples returning from a holiday with big news.

But what is new is the emergence of a whole slew of travel companies that specialise in creating the perfect proposal holiday for their clients, such as Black Tomato.

This US/UK travel company specialises “in creating exceptional tailor-made experiences for its clients,” including destination wedding packages and a “Proposal Service,” which is a custom-made holiday package designed to create the most ideal environment for popping the BIG question.

Customers can choose from a variety of different proposal types, including Original, Epic, Showstopper, Privacy and Classic.

Black Tomato also offer a number of optional extras that can be included as part of the package, including “secret photographers” who can capture the candid moments leading up to the big question, a post-proposal manicure and massage, and more.

Many home-based travel agents, such as Travel Counsellors, are also specialising in proposal holiday packages, creating tailor-made itineraries that perfectly suit their clients.

As home-based agents are able to offer a more personalised service to their clients, more and more couples are turning to them to  create s once-in-a-lifetime proposal experience.

According to Black Tomato, Iceland, Morocco and Costa Rica are popular spots for getting down on one knee.
