Go from mini-moon to honeymoon...

If you’re getting married in peak holiday season, following in the footsteps of celebrities and book a mini-moon such as a city break to Venice. This gives you the opportunity to save your honeymoon for off-season dates to bag the best rates. Plenty of destinations boast year-long tropical climates like the Caribbean islands and choosing off peak dates allows you to holiday in style with the extra spending money you have saved.

Calculate your currency...

Check for weak currencies to help you get the best value for money while you’re away. For example, there is currently a very good Euro to pound exchange rate.

Get ahead of the game...

You would have thought it was a no-brainer but many couples leave honeymoon booking to the last minute with the wedding taking priorities. It saves a lot of stress and hassle to plan and book your honeymoon well in advance. It’s a myth that the only travel deal is a last-minute one. Head to online travel sites like Secret Escapes where you can book many breaks up to a year in advance.

Check the calendar...

Researching national holidays and events in specific destinations can keep costs down. Try and avoid busy times of the year such as school holidays or festivals, where prices will be sky high and hotel rooms will be in high demand.

Don’t keep it a secret...

Everybody loves a newlywed! Mentioning it’s your honeymoon can result in a few added romantic extras when you arrive, so always let your hotel and tour operator know just in case (this isn’t a guarantee though).
