05 Things to Avoid When Choosing a Honeymoon Destination – Common Mistakes Couples Make

Your honeymoon is your respite after long months of wedding planning. Probably one of the most memorable holidays a couple will make. Here are some common 'planning' mistakes to avoid


Do Not Wait Till the Last Month to Book the Vacation

It is best to choose your honeymoon destination about six to eight months before leaving. If you are looking at a luxury resort that offers special packages, do book early as these specialised honeymoon vacation packages get snapped up quite fast.

You should choose the airline too before the last minute travel rush kicks in causing longer layovers and much higher airfares. If you are really pressed for time, make use of hotel booking sites that will take care of all booking issues. ✈️🏝


Don't Make it a Single Effort

Unlike wedding planning where you divide the chores and tackle them individually, selecting a honeymoon destination and package must be a joint effort.

In order to avoid it being tailor-made to one person's tastes and needs, get together as a couple and choose a destination that's attractive to both of you.

You could get helpful suggestions from outside sources like Excellent Hotel Deals which offer information on comprehensive honeymoon packages across the world. 💑


Avoid Copying Others' Honeymoons

When it comes to the tedious task of wedding planning couples do get a bit overwhelmed and at times tend to settle for a honeymoon that's being tried and tested by another couple.

But for example, the dream honeymoon that offered laidback surroundings and quiet days so romantic to one couple, may not suit the active couple you are.

Take advice and suggestions but do your own research and as a couple decide on activities and surroundings that would be conducive to both your tastes.


Be Specific About What you Want

Decide on the type of honeymoon you want; if it's a luxurious exotic getaway that's on your mind specify if it is to be a luxurious island resort or a far off country where you don't speak the language or know the customs.

Explain to your partner too about what your dream honeymoon destination should be so that he or she can get on the right track.

If you are going through an experienced travel agent they will know what questions to ask in order to get a clear picture of what's on your mind.


Don't Rely too Much on Internet Research

The internet is a great tool for getting an idea of what 'real' travellers have experienced. But the downside is that the information is not always accurate and it can be biased.

Do your own research amongst friends and a professional hotel booking agent or website; this way it is possible to find hidden locations that turn out to be the ultimate holiday destination.

Remember these professional websites have inside knowledge and a wealth of options for you to choose from.
