Booking your honeymoon is often the last item on the wedding ‘to do’ list. Take the hassle, worry and risk out of the planning and get a honeymoon expert to plan and book your holiday for you. It’s a once in a lifetime experience, and you don’t want to risk something going away. But to ensure you get the dream honeymoon you’ve always wanted, you need to make sure you brief your travel expert correctly. We’ve put together some pointers on what you need to communicate.
1. The destination:
Make sure you aren’t vague with where you want to go. If you’ve got 4 or 5 places in mind, talk to your fiancé and settle on your top 1 or 2. A travel agent is unlikely to give you the absolute best ideas and solutions if they have to put together several itineraries.
2. The budget:
Don’t be afraid to stipulate exactly how much you’ve got to spend. This helps the agent narrow down the options and make realistic suggestions.
3. Age group:
Tell your agent your age bracket. This really makes a difference to the types of activities and resorts they will recommend.
4. Wedding date:
f you aren’t travelling within 6 months of your wedding date, you often won’t receive honeymoon benefits from the resort. Make sure you advise this date as it may affect pricing and bonuses.
Think about what you are expecting to be included within your budget, eg. Activities, tours, meal plans, room type, class of airfare. And be realistic, particularly based on the time of year you’re travelling. You’re going to get less value for your money at peak times at your destination.
This is the most important part! Tell the agent a bit about your personalities – your likes and dislikes when travelling, the types of hotels/resorts you like, do you like social environments or do you want seclusion, are you active and want adventure sports, or do you want to just de-stress and relax. This all helps form a picture for the travel expert of what sort of holiday itinerary is going to suit you the best.
