Do’s & Dont’s for Planning the Perfect Honeymoon
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re up to your elbows in all of the wedding planning details and it’s time to start nailing down all those little honeymoon details. These basic tips can help you manage the stress so you can effectively plan the picture perfect honeymoon!
Don’t let “deals” be your guide
There is a difference between being deal driven and budget conscious. Look for a honeymoon package that is a good value, not a good “deal”. Compare the benefits, amenities, and features, not just the price.
Don’t be fooled by flawless pictures
We all know that looks can be deceiving, so don’t rest your honeymoon plans on a handful of overly photoshopped images. Instead rely on a real person that has either been to that resort or knows a colleague that has visited the resort you’re interested in. A travel professional will not only secure the best price on your behalf, but they will also let you know what restaurant to dine at and what local attractions to visit.
Don’t wait until the last minute to book your trip
Some boutique resorts or unique room categories fill up a year in advance, and the cost of airfare increases as your travel date approaches. So, when it comes to booking your honeymoon, the earlier the better! Many resorts offer early booking incentives and most packages don’t require final payment until 6 weeks prior to arrival so you’ll have plenty of time to pay off your trip as well!!
Don’t plan your honeymoon alone
Where do you get your travel planning advice, suggestions, & inspiration? From a real person that has walked on the beach, eaten in the restaurants, slept in the beds, and that you can actually talk to. A travel pro’s expertise will go a long way in assuring your complete enjoyment and a trouble free planning process. All this at a price that is easy on the wallet -- FREE!!
Don’t let your friends or family plan your trip
Choose a destination and resort that fits your personality and style. Don’t travel somewhere because you know someone that went there. Find the honeymoon getaway that is perfect for you! You don’t have to spend countless hours researching destinations and reading conflicting resort reviews; instead rely on a travel professional to be there by your side every step of the way.
Keep this in mind
If you book directly through a resort you will NOT save any money, more often than not you will probably pay more than if you were to use an experienced travel professional.
Your romance travel professional should be willing to get as involved as you would like in the process. You should be able to collaborate or delegate, either way the travel pro should be there to do all the heavy lifting.
