Polyamory, also known as consensual non-monogamy, is a relationship style that involves having multiple romantic and/or sexual partners. This can take many forms, including polyfidelity (multiple partners who are committed to one another), solo polyamory (individuals who do not want to be in a primary relationship), or hierarchical polyamory (some partners are considered more important than others).
When it comes to traveling with multiple partners, it’s important to be aware of the laws and cultural norms of the places you plan to visit and make informed decisions about your travel plans accordingly. In many places, the laws may not recognize your relationship, and you may face legal or social consequences. Some countries, such as the United States, do not recognize polygamy and it is illegal. Other countries, such as some in Africa and the Middle East, recognize polygamous marriages under certain conditions. However, it’s not common to find places where the law allows for a person to have multiple legal partners.
It can be difficult to find travel agents who specialize in arranging travel for people in polyamorous relationships, as this is not a common request. However, there are a few things you can try:

2. Check Online Communities Like Discord or Facebook

3. Use a General Travel Agent
Consider working with a general travel agent and being upfront about your relationship and any specific needs or concerns you have. It’s important to be honest with your travel agent so they can better understand your situation and make recommendations that will work for you.
