Have a luxury honeymoon without compromising quality
How can you design a luxury honeymoon without spending a fortune or compromising quality?
You may have been led to believe that you will spend more on your honeymoon than you should. Or, you may think you can get value by grabbing the best deal or cheapest package. This is so far from the truth…
Consider these recommendations and avoid the mistakes of settling for less than you deserve.
Discuss hiring a professional: Travel agents who specialize in desiging luxury honeymoons typically work with discerning couples who are interested in creating a luxury experience. With 75% of couples not having their dream honeymoon, it is becoming increasingly more important to design your experience based on value and personal tastes and lifestyle.
Travel experts often have access to special and exclusive offers that the average website visitor does not have and can offer you PRICELESS advice on the various components of your honeymoon design.

Consider an All-Inclusive Resort
There is a myth that all-inclusive resorts are a poor investment because the prices are slightly higher than those of other accommodations. In truth, choosing an all-inclusive resort, you ensure that you don’t have to worry about meal costs, adult beverage costs, gratuities, or a host of other “secret expenses” that pop up while you are away. This also means that you won’t have to worry about currency exchange rates or fees charged by your credit card company for international transactions.
Choosing the Cheapest Package
The cheapest option at any resort, hotel, or spa is often their “bargain basement” offering. When it comes to travel, especially honeymoon travel, you will get what you pay for. Your flights will likely have longer layovers, be more crowded (or possibly overbooked) and be at less convenient travel times.
The cheapest rooms tend to be the ones with the least impressive views (think: “overlooking the parking lot” or “directly looking at a brick wall” — don’t be fooled. These rooms exist in most locations,) with possibly the longest treks to elevators and entertainment at the resort, nearest construction, and so on.
Add to that the risk of booking a room without travel protection to cover you in case of an emergency. If you self-book, you could have basic or no travel protection or you could be shuttled to other “comparable” locations if the resort is over-booked.
If you are a honeymoon couple in search of high quality travel arrangements, design your honeymoon based on your personal tastes and lifestyle and one full of value.
