After you marry the love of your life and spend every dollar that you have in your budget on a wedding, you are worried that you are not going to get a honeymoon that you will enjoy. This trip is supposed to be one that you remember for a lifetime and you want to make sure that you remember it for all the right reasons. By following a few tips, you will get the honeymoon package you have been dreaming of.
When you are paying for everything you need for your wedding ceremony and reception, consider getting a credit card that awards you points for your purchases. These points can often be turned into things like airplane tickets or hotel stays. As long as you are not letting your balance on the charge card roll over and build up interest costs, you are going to save a bundle with this bonus.
In lieu of traditional wedding gifts, consider setting up a honeymoon package registry. You have to think about what is more important to you, pots and pans, or a great trip. There are plenty of websites online that will allow you to direct your wedding guest’s generous gift to you by paying for part of your trip instead of that toaster you probably do not need.
Find out when the off season starts and ends. There are times at most destinations where the weather is not ideal and so there is less demand for tourists to visit. These times are when there are better deals on honeymoon packages. Book your trip right at the edge of one of these parts of the year and you are likely to still get decent weather for a fraction of the cost and without all the crowds.
Think about the value of your dollar and consider where it is going to be worth the most. There are some countries where the conversion rate will give you more for your money while at other destinations you lose money when you exchange your currency.
Take advantage of the honeymoon package that all-inclusive resorts offer. Many places will allow you to have all you can eat and drink, a hotel room, and even some activities all for one price. This will give you a better idea of what you need to budget for because there will not be a lot of additional costs that you have to consider.
Try to fly out on an off-day. When you can only book your flight on a Friday or Saturday, you are going to pay the highest price and be stuck on a jam-packed plane. If you can, fly out on a Monday or Tuesday to get the best deal. If you want to avoid all the business travelers, book your flight on a Sunday instead.
Plan the least expensive way to get around when you get to your destination. Cab rides and car services are convenient, but they can cost you a bundle. Check around in the area to see if they have a mass transit service that can offer you the rides that you need. Better yet, you can map to do things that are within walking distance from your hotel. Just be sure to check that the area is safe for tourists.
You can also cut the price on honeymoon packages if you are open to having a room with no view. The rooms that do not offer a majestic scene that most tourists are looking for can often be reserved for a reduced price compared to the rest of the hotel.
Finally, do not be afraid to mention that you are a newlywed couple. Many travel hot spots offer discounts and specials for just married visitors.
