When should I start planning my honeymoon?
The sooner the better. Planning ahead allows you time to budget accordingly and get necessary documents needed. Planning ahead also enables you to confirm that “one of a kind room” many resorts offer making your honeymoon even more special.
Other things to consider:
Have an idea of your geography. Yes, Australia and Tahiti are amazing honeymoon destinations, but not if you have less than one week for your honeymoon. An exotic location is ideal if you have enough travel time and don’t mind long flights. Some locations require over a day traveling time and you also need adjust to time difference.
Know your budget. Airline fares play a significant role when planning your budget. If you are a frequent traveler, save your mileage and try to use your accumulated mile points. Many credit cards offer airline mileage awards that may assist you as well.
When do you want to leave?
If you are getting married on a Saturday, you may want to rethink traveling the next day, especially when traveling to the Caribbean as most flights leave in the morning. Also, the month you get married may affect your destination choice due to Mother Nature (think: Hurricane season!).
What types of honeymoons are you looking for?
Discuss with your fiancé what is most important for you to experience while on your honeymoon: adventure, relaxation, touring, a little of everything? Communication is key! I suggest writing your wish list separate and then comparing notes with each other.
What kind of resort are you looking for?
Unique and boutique? All inclusive? Many resorts offer all-inclusive options, allowing you to know ahead of time exactly how much you will be spending. Some resorts go one step further and include excursions or catamaran sailings with their all-inclusive package. If excursions are not included, we can book them ahead of time so you don’t have to worry or decide what you want to do and see once you get to the resort.
Does the hotel offer anything special because it is our honeymoon?
Many resorts offer amazing honeymoon packages that can be purchased for a certain amount or are complimentary when booking a certain room category with minimum nights. These packages can include anywhere from a romantic dinner on a beach, complimentary massages, and breakfast in bed, to free anniversary stays and many more.
What kind of deposit do I need?
When is final payment due? When do I need to pay? Depends on the honeymoon you have chosen. If you are choosing an amazing adult only all inclusive, most tour companies only require a minimum deposit with final payment usually due 45 days prior to departure. If selecting, say an exotic Safari in Africa, payments may vary. Airlines dictate the rules for payment of airline tickets.
Do I need a Visa or vaccinations?
Some destinations do require Visas; Beloved Getaways will be able to advise you of that requirement and assist in obtaining them should you need. Also important is what type of passport you are traveling under, many countries are now requiring passports valid 6 months after entering country. Always best to confirm with your doctor if they suggest vaccinations to where you are traveling it to an exotic destination.
Do I need insurance? This is my honeymoon, and I will never cancel.
There are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. Travel Insurance provides protection for your travel investment. Travel insurance also provides the peace of mind that you are not alone when you are really in need.
Can we register for a honeymoon?
Yes, you can register for a honeymoon with Beloved Getaways. We keep a detailed list your “extra wishes” and take care of details. Your friends and family can buy you spa treatments, special dinners, excursions, etc.
When can we meet with you to start planning, and do you charge any fees?
I work by appointment - around my client’s convenience, including evenings and weekends. If email is better for you, that works, too. We have clients all over the U.S. There are no fees to use our services. We are compensated for our time and services from the travel wholesalers that we purchase our products through. This fee is already incorporated into the pricing and is NOT an additional charge regardless if you purchase it yourself online, except now you have the services of a Travel Specialist. So why not have a professional assist you and do the legwork for you?
Do you offer any other services?
Yes, we also offer Save the Dates, Wedding Invitations, Envelope Addressing, Favors and Accessories, and Monogrammed Gifts.
