With all the intricacies and logistics of wedding planning, the last thing any couple needs is the added stress of finding the right flights, hotels, excursions, and transfers for their honeymoon. Your honeymoon is your chance to recuperate and enjoy the quality time together after the excitement and many months of organizing a wedding. That’s why we recommend booking a romantic honeymoon package to make the experience as straightforward as possible and to give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back for all your hard work.
With so much choice and so much to consider, we share our best-kept secrets to finding the luxury honeymoon package of your dreams:
DECIDE ON A BUDGET
First things first – decide on a budget together so you can be realistic with your research and share similar expectations. The benefit of booking a package is the lack of hidden costs, with the bulk of costs accounted for in the price of the package. Consider spending money, car rental if you need it, and flights if they aren’t included in the package. Budgeting doesn’t have to be boring – go for a romantic coffee date and bring your spreadsheets with you!
NARROW DOWN YOUR DESTINATION
If you’re looking for an international honeymoon package, the sky is the limit. With so many destinations to consider, the choice can be overwhelming but here are some key things to think about:
Climate – What sort of weather are you hoping for? If you have a destination in mind, research the local climate at the time of year you are planning to visit. Look out for monsoon seasons which can take place in the height of summer.
Vibe – Are you looking for a busy, adventure-filled honeymoon or a slow, relaxing retreat? If it’s the former, keep an eye open for cities or resorts with sports facilities and local tours. If it’s the latter, consider adult-only resorts or time your honeymoon outside of school holiday time for peace and quiet.
Scenery – beach, mountains, or city? You might have a clear idea of what you want, but your partner may have other ideas. Perhaps you’d like to mix it up. With so many locations on offer, you might consider splitting your time between two contrasting areas by booking two smaller packages at different destinations that are easy enough to travel between.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Once you’ve settled on a budget and destination, it’s time to do your research. By all means, look for bargains, but be aware that by spending less you may also be compromising on quality and service.
Once you have an idea of where you want to book your package, spend some time reading reviews on Google and TripAdvisor as well as blogs on the area to get an accurate representation and avoid any unpleasant surprises! This is also a great way to get insider tips from locals or people who have been before.
The final decision has been made and you’re ready to book. Make sure to subtly mention that it’s your honeymoon to the hotel and airline. While this won’t guarantee special treatment, your hotel or flight provider may well do something special to commemorate your trip as newlyweds!
To avoid any complications with customs or your health, make sure you have the correct vaccinations if needed before you fly. You can find out the required jabs from this website to keep you and your partner protected from any local diseases.
CREATE AN ITINERARY
Now everything is booked, the real fun begins! Remember to plan plenty of days by the pool to rest and relax after your busy wedding season, but if you’re adventure-seekers, be sure to put your research to good use and schedule a time to explore and experience the local culture and scenery on offer. After all, this is your opportunity to go on adventures with your spouse for the first time and make memories to last a lifetime.
