For many couples, their honeymoon is a once in a lifetime trip, a chance to do something very special. Having booked well in excess of 300 honeymoons in my career, I like to think I’ve learned a thing or two. So, here are 6 practical tips to get you started on a stress-free honeymoon planning journey...
Do you want to relax on an exotic beach while your partner wants to scale the highest mountain? Maybe you can do both! Talk to me so that we can find the perfect compromise. It’s rare that there isn’t a way to incorporate both your dreams (if they’re different!) into one reality.
When to go?
At least half of all my couples now wait for a while after their actual wedding date to go on their honeymoon and there are many reasons for this, not least financial. Waiting also means a chance to get in that extra trip, a Minimoon, which I can help organise too!
You can never predict the weather and while it’s sunny in Europe it can be wet elsewhere. So before you commit to that dream destination on that ideal date, check in with me. We can try to prevent you having to deal with extreme weather on this trip of a lifetime.
How long is a piece of string? Don’t worry about what others are spending as there is a honeymoon for every budget! If you’re unsure what figure to put in that wedding spreadsheet talk to me well in advance. I can provide you with some costs so you can work towards saving for your trip. I often start talking to couples two years before the big day.
From being able to set your budget to getting the best deal, there are so many benefits to planning and booking early. If you’re travelling during school holidays book as early as possible, 10-11 months before is a good rule of thumb, for those more flexible with dates at least 6 months before is ideal, but the earlier the better.
Trust the expert!
My job is to match you both with the perfect once in a lifetime trip. I love getting to know my clients, what they want and need and finding them the best value for money. I treat your trip as if it’s my own. Of course, travel is fraught with unknowns but booking with Travel Counsellors means that you are protected, plus you have me and our huge team behind the scenes here for you before, during and after your trip.
So give me a call and let’s get planning...!
