Honeymoon holidays – where on earth do you start?
You get engaged. You feel unbelievably excited. Breaking the news to your friends and family is the most fun you’ve had in months. And then it hits you – you have a wedding and a honeymoon to plan.
The wedding can often take over, leaving decisions about honeymoon destinations on the back-burner, as you peruse venues, menus and big white dresses. For many couples, the honeymoon itself gets left until the last minute, when there’s a flurry of googling, lots of phone calls, and hours spent pouring over ‘Top 10 honeymoon packages’ articles, trying desperately to find the right match.
If only you could get some hired help from the start. Well, one way to help yourself is to call a tour operator who can work out a series of honeymoon options for you, leaving you to get on with the small task of organising your wedding.
Many tour operators specialise in honeymoon destinations and honeymoon packages. So they can advise on which particular properties are best suited for honeymoons without thousands of kids running around, where you can experience true romance with privacy.
Tailor-made honeymoon holidays are increasingly popular, as they enable you to mix safari with city lights, or mountain treks with lazy days on a desert island. And because it takes a lot of expertise to put these kinds of honeymoon packages together, you’ll be dealing with an expert from the start. So even if you’re short on ideas and need lots of help, chances are, a decent tailor-made tour operator can help with all of that, right from the first phone call.
Better still, a tailor-made honeymoon itinerary that’s put together by a tour operator takes all the hassle out of the travel aspect of your honeymoon. For example, if you want to go to Sri Lanka followed by the Maldives, luxury tour operator Scott Dunn can craft the entire trip for you, from your flights and accommodation, to organising a driver to take you around Sri Lanka, your transfers and all other aspects of your holiday. They offer tailor-made travel in honeymoon destinations all over the world, as do Black Tomato who, for example, can arrange every hop of an island-hopping honeymoon package around the Greek islands.
Alternatively, if you have a specific honeymoon destination in mind, you might want to try a tour operator that specialises in a certain continent or country. Naturally Africa are a good example if you’re interested in safari honeymoon holidays. Or if you want to find out more about going on an Eastern adventure you could try Go Differently.
Ultimately, you want your honeymoon to be a trip to remember, for all the right reasons. And when there’s a whole wedding to plan and no head-space left for anything else, it makes a lot of sense to let a honeymoon destinations expert do all the hard work for you. Remember, all that knowledge is just a phone call away. So if you really don’t know where on earth to start, delegate to someone full of honeymoon ideas!
