Top Tips for Planning your Honeymoon

1. Sit down with a bottle of wine and the atlas several months in advance while you still have the pick of rooms, flights & early booking discounts.  Have fun this is the time to dream and write a wish list without worrying about the price.

2. Remember a honeymoon should be something you both want.  Do you want to relax on a beach, experience some adventure on a safari or travel the world?

3. If you are considering a twin centre look for flights that fit.  For example Dubai works well with The Maldives, South Africa combines perfectly with Mauritius, The Caribbean Islands work well with a city stay in New York or Las Vegas.  Be careful not to take on too much travelling – remember it is a holiday and you will be recovering from a wedding after all.

4. Book as early as you can.  As a rule, it’s not a good idea to gamble on last-minute deals with a honeymoon. Save in other ways such as booking an all- inclusive package and always mention that you are on honeymoon to avail of any upgrades or optional extras that might be available.

5. Don’t scrimp on luxury this is the time to treat yourselves.  Why not travel for 12 days instead of 14 so you can bump your hotel room up a star or two?

6. Be sure to book under the name in your passport.  Name changes can be surprisingly costly to effect.

7. Book through Travel Focus a fully licensed & bonded Travel Agent.
