You’ve probably seen it, it’s all over TikTok and it’s one of those trends that just doesn’t die out. Why? Because it’s one of the easiest ones to execute without having to spend too much time on your phone when you’d rather be taking in the beauty of your surroundings… or enjoying each other’s company.

How to do it:

  • Remember to record a one-second clip of your hands finger-snapping in front of all the different places that make up your trip together.
  • Once you have all the clips you want to use, scroll through TikTok to find one of these videos. Make sure you use the search tool and use a travel-related hashtag, such as #traveltok or #travelcouple.
  • When you’ve found one, click on the audio, and make sure you save it to Favorites.
  • Now that you have the clips and the sound, all you need to do is head over to the ‘+’ sign, add the sound from your Favorites. Then add every finger-snapping clip from your library, and TikTok will do the rest with auto-sync.

Bungalow run-through

Heading to an amazing rental home with a pool overseeing some breathtaking views? You might love this one.

How to do it is easy enough. Hit record and grab hold of your partner’s hand and have them guide you across the bungalow and into the pool. Don’t forget to get a waterproof phone case to avoid a tech disaster.

How to do it:

  • Save the sound from a similar video to Favorites.
  • Have your partner take your hand as they record you running in front of them through the bungalow.
  • Jump with them in the pool, or let go of their hand as they record and jump in the pool.
  • Add clip and sound, auto-sync and publish!

This is another one of those #traveltok trends that never seem to go out of fashion. All you have to do here is take a first selfie with your partner at the airport holding your passports and cover the camera with them slowly for the transition. All that’s left is making sure you’ve got some clips throughout the trip of each other wandering, eating, kissing, exploring. Smash it all together with the right audio and boom! You go viral.

How to do it:

  • Save sound from a similar video onto Favorites.
  • Make a selfie video at the airport of the two of you holding your passports.
  • Slowly move the passports in front of the camera until it goes black.
  • Hit on the ‘+’ sign and add the sound
  • Add the airport clip, and all the clips you want to add from your trip.
  • Auto-sync and publish!

One day, you’re gonna wake up…

One of the great things about TikTok is that the sounds that can be used on your clips go way beyond a music library. There are thousands of inspirational quotes with a backdrop of calm music that are perfect for these videos.

Finding those quote-based sounds can be tricky. The most efficient way is to scroll through TikTok with the #TravelTok hashtag and save those sounds onto your Favorites. Some creators, such as Jesse J. Pedigo (@creatingwonders), specialize in making the quote sounds for other users.

There is a lot more creative freedom in quote trends because you can literally choose any and as many clips from your travels. Many creators choose to add subtitles for the quotes on the final video, but if you do this, remember you need to time the duration of each piece of text accordingly. It can be a little daunting, but in the end, it’s totally worth it.

How to do it:

  • Save sound to Favorites.
  • Upload the best clips from your travels together and add the sound.
  • Optional text: Add the captions to the quotes and sync the durations for the whole video.
  • Publish!

Fist bump!

The concept for this one is the same as the finger-snapping one we first mentioned. Fist-bump your partner with different backdrops of your trips, smash it all together, add sound, and watch TikTok make magic happen.

How to do it:

  • Find a similar video and save the sound to Favorites.
  • During your trip, remember to record one second of your hands fist-bumping in front of all the different places that make up your trip together.
  • Head over to the ‘+’ sign, add the sound, and every fist-bump clip from your library and TikTok will do the rest with auto-sync.

“When are you having kids?”


Don’t stop until you find your travel partner for life #travel #partner #goals #couplegoals #travelcouple #fyp #foryou #foryoupage #inspiration

♬ Originalton – Hi

This is one of my personal favorites, and one I’m sure many recently married couples out there will love, especially couples bombarded with that constant nagging question from everyone around them: ‘So when will you have kids?’

It’s perfectly fine to want kids, of course, but it’s also perfectly fine to not want them. And travel instead. So next time they ask, maybe having a TikTok answer just that, might do the trick.

How to do it:

  • First of all, make sure you have the audio for this trend saved to Favorites.
  • Then, find a clip of your wedding day, and add the text “Everyone: So when are you having kids?”
  • Add a series of clips of the two of you traveling around the world, and make sure to add the text: “Us:” for the duration of those snippets.

Clear water…Cheers!

There is nothing quite like the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. If you’re heading there together, raising a couple of champagne glasses is one of the easiest and classiest reels to up your game on TikTok.

How to do it:

  • Before recording, get your hands on a couple of champagne glasses.
  • Hit record as you both fill the empty glasses with that crystal-clear water, toast, and let the water fall back into the ocean.
  • Before uploading the clips, make sure you find a similar video first, and save the audio associated with it to your Favorites.
  • Add the clips and audio, and voilá.

Life is short, the world is wide…

This is another quote-sound that has recently been trending again. As we’ve already mentioned, you can pair these sounds with whatever clips you want, without having to pre-record anything specific for them.

Tip: Make sure you get some clips of your partner exploring as they hold your hand, selfies, bird’s eye views, the two of you toasting at a charming restaurant. Anything goes. The important part is to capture all those moments you don’t want to ever forget.

How to do it:

  • Save sound to Favorites.
  • Upload the best clips from your travels together and add the sound.
  • This is optional but you can also add the captions to the quotes and sync the durations for the whole video.
  • Publish!

Traveling as a couple…wait for it


True or false? #couple #couples #couplegoals #couplecomedy #couplelove #travel #travellife #GetGrafting #holiday #vacationmode #viral #fyp #fypシ #fy

♬ Into The Thick Of It! – The Backyardigans

This is one of the more realistic TikTok trends, and it’s one that allows you to add in a personal touch. Traveling is not always daisies and sunshine, especially as a couple. What is it that best defines your travels together? Do they get annoyed because you’re asking for selfies every second step of the way? Are you the one who always gets lost unless you have your nose stuck to a map the whole time?

Find that thing that defines you as a couple, and own it!

How to do it:

  • Save the sound from a similar video to your Favorites.
  • Decide what defines your travels as a couple and re-enact it in a humorous way.
  • Add the text: “Traveling as a couple… wait for it” in the first few seconds of your clip.
  • Auto-sync and publish!

All these years, all these countries


being with you feels like this song I love you @alexcarvs #love #soulemate #abba #theboy #gooutside #couplestiktok #travelcouple #luca #bucketlist

♬ Chiquitita x Twilight – twibytez

One of the most defining TikToks you could take as a couple is a reel of all your travels together. This might be something you need to dig out some old clips for, but it will definitely be worth it.

How to do it:

  • Save the sound from a similar video into your Favorites.
  • Dig up all the clips of the two of you together from all the traveling you’ve done over the years.
  • On the first clip, you use, make sure to add the text: “-X- years and -XX- countries later.”
  • Add all the clips of the two of you together traveling the world, hit auto-sync, and watch your whole story come together.
