Adults who are a part of the swinger lifestyle don't have to feel left out when planning a vacation. You can find hotels, resorts and parties all over Europe and the rest of the world that cater to your wants and needs.
Decide if you want to travel with a predetermined group or if you want to meet up with groups once you arrive at your destination. If you have a group of couples who will be going on vacation with you, plan your destinations, hotel arrangements and travel arrangements together so that you won't end up staying in separate places or flying on different planes. If you are a couple looking for people to vacation with once you get to Europe, look for couples via the Internet. Sites such as UK and Europe Swingers will help you meet up with couples in countries that you will be visiting.
Pick destinations to visit that are friendly toward the swinger and alternative lifestyles. Try hedonism resorts, clothing-optional or nude resorts, or places that advertise themselves as adult-only destinations. Call and speak directly with someone in customer service before heading to any resorts that you may be interested in so that you can ask questions and get information about policies, regulations and options offered.
Book lodging arrangements at hotels or businesses that cater to swingers or those that are open-minded to the lifestyle. There are villas in Spain that advertise as open to "Swingers Holidays," and they offer chalets that can fit three or four couples comfortably and privately. You can find places like this by looking them up via the Internet or by contacting a travel agency that specialises in swinger vacations, such as TravelSDC, Exotic Travel Services or Adult Adventure NEWS.
Find some parties to participate in while you will be in certain areas. This is another place the Internet can be extremely useful, as there are quite a few listings of swingers' parties, clubs and events to be found online. Once you have come up with some listings, see if they match the locations and dates on your itinerary. If you are interested in attending one of these events, call and speak with someone to get more information. This can be a great way to make new friends in the European countries you visit, as well as to see how swingers in other countries enjoy themselves.
Take care of any safety precautions and medical testing. Before you head out the door for your exciting vacation adventure, get any STD-related testing you might need. Carry things such as prophylactics and birth control pills with you so you don't have to rely on others to provide them. You are in charge of your own health and safety, so take the time to plan out what you will be doing, who you will be doing it with and what you need to have with you to ensure you will remain safe.
