Plan Your Bucketlist Honeymoon


Many engaged couples have dreams of honeymooning in places like Greece, Iceland, Thailand, Japan, Italy, and Peru. However, they are quickly overwhelmed by the wedding planning process and end up settling for a short stay at an all-inclusive resort or a Caribbean cruise just to make things easier. By working with a trusted travel advisor who has experience planning trips around the world, couples can save time and money without compromising their dream honeymoon.

Oftentimes, couples may shy away from taking that bucket list honeymoon because they are nervous they will forget something by planning it themselves. It can be challenging to plan a big trip, especially while planning a wedding, in addition to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Simply thinking about all the components of a well-planned travel experience (flights, transfers, accommodations, transportation, activities and excursions, and travel insurance) can make even the most organized couple throw up their hands! This is when working with a travel advisor will be helpful.

With a resource like the internet at your fingertips, what are the benefits of using a travel advisor when you can plan and book on your own? The internet is a great tool to get a general overview of a destination as well as get an idea of must-sees. However, the internet can also add to the planning stress because the search results can become overwhelming. Unlike an internet search engine, travel advisors will take the time to get to know you and can refine their recommendations based on your likes and dislikes. This will help you avoid the frustration of seeing search results that don’t match with what you want. Travel advisors work with reputable vendors all over the world to put together the perfect travel experience. 

If you have your heart set on a bucket list destination for your honeymoon but are nervous about handling the details on your own while also planning your wedding, then consider working with a travel advisor.

General Travel Advisor Tips:

- Whether you plan a trip yourself or with a travel advisor, always invest in travel insurance!

- The cheapest option may not be the option that offers the best value. For example, the cheapest flight might require you to have a 12-hour layover. There are travelers who don’t mind, but for the travelers with limited time, that would be a huge waste.

- The more you can tell your travel advisor about your preferences, the better they will be able to tailor your itinerary. So let them know about your last amazing travel experience and what made it so wonderful!
