What does a Travel Specialist do?
The process will be different depending on the Travel Specialist that you work with. We start with a free consultation call to learn more about your honeymoon dreams, personal tastes, lifestyle and budget. We use the information to design the travel experience that is right for you.
Is it more expensive to work with you than to book by myself?
If you think time is money, then definitely not. The amount of time we save you by doing all the research, itinerary building, and booking for you is worth its weight in gold.
But even beyond that — working with honeymoon travel specialists like us is a smart financial move. That’s because we may actually get you a few extra perks, like late check out or champagne waiting for you in your room! If you’re more concerned with getting a cheap deal, no matter the experience, it’s probably better if you design your own trip.
Why should I work with you?
Here’s what I’m really proud of – I’m devoted to building a relationship with my clients.
When you work with White Sand Travel, you’re not just plugging dates into Expedia and hoping for the best … you’ve got a real, live travel pro who’s going to take the reins for you.
If you’re looking for luxury on your honeymoon, there’s nothing more luxurious than personalized service — and that’s what you get when you work with me. Welcome to VIP service!
Do you have a minimum budget requirement?
Because our goal is to elevate your travel experience, we do have minimum budget which is $4,500.00 per couple.
What destinations do you provide service for?
White Sand Travel serves the Caribbean and Mexico, but we are not limited to geography. We book honeymoons for every destination. We chose to specialize in the above destinations because of popularity, accessibility, and affordability. There is a plethora of options for epic honeymoon experiences, so we do not impose limits.
How do we know what documentation is required to travel?
During your consultation call, we will discuss these requirements with you. We also continue the conversation during the months of preparing your trip. You're never left to guess what you need.
I don’t know where I want to go?
That is a common challenge. After all there are so many options. Because of our knowledge and relationships with travel suppliers, we can zoom in on what destinations and locations suit you best. That is one of the reasons we conduct that complimentary interview with you – so we can customize your honeymoon based on your tastes and lifestyle.
How far in advance should I book my honeymoon?
We believe that 9-12 months prior to your wedding date is a good timeline to book your honeymoon. When you delay booking, you compromise the experience that you can have.
Do you book flights only?
Our travel packages consist of accommodations, flights and transfers and optional travel portection. We do not book flights only.
How do I get to the resort from the airport?
Your package does include round-trip airport transfers. Approximately 10 days prior to your departure, you will receive your official travel documents which will include all details about your trip.
What if I have more questions?
Refer all travel related questions to your Travel Specialist.
How do you plan vacations to places you haven't personally traveled before?
While we haven't been everywhere, we collaborate with our travel partners who are planted all over the globe, to create amazing vacation experiences. They are our best resource, and we enjoy having them as part of the White Sand Travel team.
Why should I book with White Sand Travel instead of booking my own trip online?
Simply, because no one on Trip Advisor is staking their professional reputation on the outcome of your trip. Your honeymoon or destination wedding will likely be one of the most memorable trips you’ll ever take. You could spend countless hours online, researching rates and reading reviews without really being certain of what you’re getting. We personalize your itinerary to fit your personal tastes and lifestyle.
Do you charge a fee for your services?
Yes. We keep our travel design fees as low as possible, so you get to stay in-budget without sacrificing an experience while you’re in your destination. Our design fee ranges from $125 - $750, depending on several factors (length and complexity of trip, destination, etc.)
Why do you charge a fee
Our commitment to you is to provide white-glove service. Our business model does not rely solely on commissions from hotels, tour companies, and travel suppliers. If we did, we would be motivated to select specific products (hotel, tour, experience) based on the commission fee; not what creates the best travel experience for you. Our design fee is your insurance that we will make decisions based on our thorough research and your travel style.

How can I contact you?
Our complimentary consultations are by appointment only. Please fill out the contact form, which leads you to my calendar for you to select an ideal day and time for us to discuss your vacation via phone.
Can you email me a quote or information without a consultation?
We understand that you may be very busy and want to just get a quote. Because your trip is unique to you and is likely one of the most memorable one you’ll ever take, we want to talk design the experience that will fit your criteria. We can’t do that by just sending a quote without first having a conversation with you. After the initial consultation, we can do everything via email.
