For people wanting to hone their chat up lines ahead of the trips Mario and Lucy have provided these top five tips: 

Always start with a compliment – everyone likes to hear good things about themselves 

Getting your potential date to laugh is a great ice breaker, but we don’t recommend a knock knock joke as your opening line! 

“Can I buy you a drink?” This is probably the oldest line in the book but more often than not it works perfectly for men AND women. 

It might sound mad, but sometimes the corniest line works. “Did you hurt yourself when you fell down to earth from heaven?” is a good one. 

If it’s clear that the person you’re trying to chat up isn’t interested, politely move on. There’s plenty more fish in the sea!
