How to pick your travel companion by their star sign

A survey by found that a 33% of people have broken up with a partner during a vacation, due to a difference in travel habits. 

Essential Travel also found that one in ten friendships are ruined by holidaying together. So how can you avoid falling out while travelling? And how can you know if you and your travel companion are compatible on the road?

Astrologers at Psychic World have paired up with renowned psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman, to reveal the zodiacs that should avoid travelling together at all costs, and the star signs that make the perfect travel partners.

Which star signs should NOT travel together? 

According to astrological science, two signs that shouldn’t travel together are Leos and Scorpios. Whilst the pairing make for an undeniably great connection, both platonically and romantically, the two would be absolutely mismatched in venturing on a holiday and soon become starkly aware of their differences.

Leos are early to bed and early to rise, whereas Scorpios are night owls. Leos also love to tick off the big tourist spots, and Scorpio prefers to look for unknown, mysterious corners.

Another tough match is Capricorn and Aquarius. Even booking a holiday won’t be easy – with Capricorn asking to go to the hippest, most ‘happening’ destination, and Aquarius will be searching for more low-key, less visited locations. Capricorn would love to spot some celebrities, and Aquarius is interested in conversations with the regulars at the local independent shops.

Capricorn is a lover of luxury and opulence and likes to travel in style, taxi please! Aquarius favours budget travel, meeting the most elderly locals and keeping it real on the public bus.

The WORST star signs to travel with

Aries, look away. Whilst the independent Aries is a trailblazer who loves to break new ground, they can also be extremely impatient, high energy, and very impulsive.

Aries are always awake, and always bored. They’re keen to look for the next activity, before you even finish the current activity. They are also quite independent, so when they are ready to leave, even if you’re not, they’ll just go!

Another tough sign for couples holidays is the Capricorn, as whilst they are practical and patient, their love of luxury can be off putting to a partner, and they can have a tendency to be high maintenance. They can also be intimidating and unapproachable, a trait that could be a hindrance when travelling and talking to new people.

Capricorn’s do love to go on holiday, but only if it’s four stars and above. They won’t let you just duck into a burger joint or a dive bar, they want to find the most exclusive location in the area, with a waiting list of six months.

The best star signs as travel buddies

Virgo, the sign ruled by Mercury and as such, one of the best communicators, are skilled multi-taskers and quick thinkers, making them great travel companions.

Virgos are organised, meticulous in their planning and won’t forget or lose a single item. Print-out maps of the area? Check! Lists of all local restaurants, broken down by cuisine, budget and veggie options? Check! Mosquito repellent? They got it.

If hyper organisation is not your thing, then Gemini is a great sign to travel with. Social, friendly and energetic, the Gemini will build flexibility into your travel, exploring destinations radically different from home.

They’ll make friends with the Maître D, so you two can waltz into exclusive locations without a reservation, and Gemini will never take it personally if you want a change of pace or need a moment to yourself.

Which star signs should travel together?

Adventurous Sagittarius and party-animal Gemini are the best of travel buddies. They’ll make friends with everyone they meet and will find their way into the most exclusive of events. Sure, they may both lose their passports or miss their ferries, but they won’t be annoyed with each other about it.

Both Sagittarius and Gemini are happy without a set plan or a routine, and will enjoy any random adventure together, with lots of laughs and a few bruises along the way.

Taurus and Libras also make for a great travel pair. Peaceful Taurus and graceful Libra both love quiet, organised spaces, and both enjoy elegant activities, like city tours, ancient castles and designer coffees, they’ll find they have a lot in common.

They’re not into adventure holidays, so they will appreciate only the most convenient of locations and the most attentive of service, and they’ll see eye to eye about this.

Romantic Pisces and sensitive Cancer are a fabulous pairing when it comes to going on couples holidays. They’re both happy with a long, lazy morning, then a leisurely stroll and a search for hidden gems off the beaten track.

They could be going anywhere, and as long as they’re hand in hand, they’ll love it . Both favour holidays by the water, and they can spend hours just staring at the waves, watching the sun set and sipping on a cocktail. Pisces and Cancer love to please, so each will try to fit around the other as much as possible.
