Once thought to be a shrinking industry, travel agencies are, in fact, alive and well. Why? If you visit Google and search “honeymoon,” you will be welcomed with 115 million responses. And yes, they will save you money.
If you need a flight, definitely use a price comparison website or travel apps to save money. Some even have a Price Predictor that will tell you if you should wait to buy because fares will be dropping.
When you are planning a honeymoon on a budget, you want your dollar to stretch, so think about traveling where the currency conversion is in your favor. A European honeymoon, while dreamy, might not be realistic when you consider that you will pay almost twice as much.
Booking early allows you to choose the room you want. For example, you can book a cruise 12-18 months in advance, giving you a chance to secure your honeymoon by simply putting down a small deposit and making payments throughout the year.
Most all-inclusive rates include your accommodations, dining, activities, and entertainment. Some will even include alcoholic beverages, gratuities, and transfers. Call the cruise line or resort (or talk to your travel agent) so you know exactly what’s included in all-inclusive.
