Planning on popping the question soon? You may want to rethink the diamond in favor of a dream vacation!

According to USA Today, a survey from Sandals Resorts has found that more couples would prefer a trip over an engagement ring.

Sandals surveyed more than 1,400 adults in the U.S. and found that 72 percent would rather have a trip than “an extravagant engagement ring.”
USA Today reports Sandals also found that more than half of respondents would pick sharing an experience with their significant other over gifting each other something material.

And when it comes to the type of vacations couples like to take, Sandals found that 37 percent of those surveyed would opt for a “luxury all-inclusive beach vacation” as opposed to 27 percent who would choose an adventurous trip. Twenty-six percent of respondents said they would prefer a culturally immersive location, and just 8 percent said they would opt for a spiritual retreat.
