5 Ways a Honeymoon Travel Specialist Will Make Your Honeymoon AMAZING!

Honeymoon travel is not as simple as it sounds. Where do you go? Who do you trust? What if it isn’t as good as what’s shown on the website? These are just some of the questions couples will ask themselves when they try to find the perfect location for their honeymoon. There are plenty of things to consider and decisions to make to ensure you have an amazing honeymoon. That’s where a honeymoon travel specialist can help!

They will offer you the best chance to have romance, relaxation, and fun, while not having to worry about the little details! Whether you’re a couple wanting to explore the world, or looking for a relaxing vacation on your own, a honeymoon travel specialist can make your experience easier and more enjoyable. From helping you find the perfect destination to creating itineraries for the perfect honeymoon experience, a honeymoon travel specialist can have you off to paradise in no time!

Let’s explore the top five reasons to work with a honeymoon travel specialist for your honeymoon:

Knowledge of a Variety of Honeymoon Properties

Honeymoon travel specialists have knowledge of a variety of destinations & resort brands that are a cut above other types of resorts & properties for an amazing honeymoon.

A honeymoon travel specialist can recommend resorts that will offer you…

  • Privacy
  • Romantic extras like candlelight dinners and a couple’s massage
  • Perks/amenities
  • Romantic & pampering suites
  • Amazing spa experiences

All of these details are vitally important when it comes to having a great honeymoon experience!

The Best Honeymoon Packages

A honeymoon travel consultant knows the best honeymoon packages that will enhance
your honeymoon and the requirements to qualify for them!

All too often, couples think that they can show up and receive the honeymoon amenities without understanding the qualifications or how to set it up in advance. Unfortunately, they are highly disappointed when they don’t get any of the perks and that is a disappointing way to start your happily ever after.

Setting Up Special Experiences

A honeymoon travel consultant not only can do all of the above, but also will recommend, design, & set up unique and special experiences for your honeymoon.
Note: If you are working with a “honeymoon specialist” who doesn’t guide you or
recommend special experiences for you to enjoy on your honeymoon, then you are
working with the wrong person.

Here are a just a few of the special experiences a honeymoon specialist can design and
set up to take your honeymoon from good to AMAZING!

  • Set up a private upgraded transfer with VIP service.
  • Schedule a couple’s massage/breakfast in bed/picnic on the beach
    • Set up off-site excursions, like a cultural tour, ziplining, swimming with dolphins, rum tasting, and so much more
  • As well as many other recommend must-do activities, & sites to see, or places to eat that you can only experience in your area.

Giving You VIP Status

Your honeymoon consultant can make sure you and your new spouse are wowed upon
arrival from the minute you step foot on your resort by…

  • Personally contacting the resort concierge and sales team to notify them that they have VIP honeymooners arriving.
  • Sharing any special requests that you may have with the appropriate team member to make sure they are implemented! (It’s not just a comment on a booking that we hope gets seen).
  • Following up on the honeymoon amenities to ensure you receive them.

Skipping the 1-800-WAIT-ON-HOLD and Crossing Your Fingers that You Get the Help You Need

Let’s face it, we’ve all experienced the 1-800 “call center” with the random agent who
doesn’t know you or your honeymoon from Adam! You’re just a number to these types
call centers, and the last thing you want is for an error to happen during your
honeymoon planning. A true honeymoon consultant will be with you from start to finish
and care about you and every detail of your honeymoon. They will listen to what you
want in a honeymoon experience so that they can recommend a destination and resort
that is the perfect fit for you, Every question.

Any special requests? Even needs you may have while in your destination or after your
honeymoon is complete. Let’s face it, no online booking engine is going to do that.

A honeymoon travel specialist can help simplify the process of planning and coordinating your dream honeymoon. He or she can assist you with all the little details like transportation, excursions, and suggestions for what to do on your honeymoon once you have arrived at your destination. Your honeymoon specialist will also be there to find you the best value possible and handle any emergencies that might come up during your honeymoon. And most of the time, they’re more than happy to answer any questions you have before or during your honeymoon.

Ultimately, a good honeymoon travel specialist is simply someone who you can trust to
help you plan an amazing honeymoon, so that you focus on your upcoming wedding
rather than stressing out over planning your honeymoon! When you find a honeymoon
specialist who has your best “honeymoon” interest at heart, it can make all of the
difference in the world.

Ultimate Honeymoon Planning Guide: 8 Things You Need to Know for the Perfect Honeymoon

Ok, so let’s jump into these six honeymoon essentials!

1. Create a “Honeymoon Wish List”

Ultimate Honeymoon Planning Guide: 8 Things You Need to Know for the Perfect Honeymoon

Before you do any honeymoon planning, you and your future spouse need to
take some time to make a list together of what you both are hoping to get out of
your honeymoon. I call it a “honeymoon wishlist” Is gourmet food important to
you, do you prefer ala cart vs. buffet restaurants? Do you care more about
having a stunning honeymoon suite, or are you ok with the standard room? Are
you both wanting a beautiful long stretch of swimmable beach, or are pools
more important to you? What type of excursions would you like to enjoy? You
will want to have at least some of these settled before you start researching
destinations and resorts.

2. Don’t Base Your Decisions Solely on Recommendations

Recommendations are great, but you have to remember that you are a completely different couple than they are. What is great for one couple, may not be great for you! Your honeymoon is pretty important, you don’t want to take a chance on having an underwhelming or poor experience. It’s fine to take a recommendation, but use it as a starting point, not your end point. And PLEASE, don’t go to Trip Advisor until you’ve narrowed your selection of honeymoon resorts down to two or three options!

3. Do This Instead

Remember that list I told you to create in point number 1? Once you have that
list made, you’ll want to start thinking about past travel experiences, both good
and bad… What did you like or love about a trip you took, or what did you dislike
or hate, about a past vacation or getaway? Add these to your “honeymoon wish
list”. Now you will be ready to move on to point number 4.

4. Make a List of Potential Honeymoon Destinations

Now it’s time to start making a list of potential honeymoon destinations! Use
your honeymoon wish list to help you narrow down destinations that offer what
is on your list, then make a list of potential honeymoon resorts.

5. Research Possible Honeymoon Resorts in Your Targeted Destinations

Once you have a couple of honeymoon locations chosen, then it’s time to figure out which resort to have your ceremony and host your group. One of the most effective ways to choose a wedding resort & venue is to visit it first before you decide. In fact, many resorts offer special “wedding visit” packages to encourage you to visit their resort hoping you will choose them for your destination wedding.

6. Get a New Email Exclusively for Wedding Related Conversations

Ultimate Honeymoon Planning Guide: 8 Things You Need to Know for the Perfect Honeymoon

This is a great way to stay organized and not miss any type of important communication about your honeymoon. I always suggest that you create a special email address exclusively for your wedding & honeymoon. This way all of your wedding correspondence & conversations will be in one spot! Believe me, this will save you so much time and probably money in the end. The last thing you want is to miss a confirmation email that your honeymoon resort suite is almost sold out, booking because it was sandwiched between emails from Beach Body & your Grandmother’s cataract surgery!

7. Consider Getting a New Credit Card that Earns Miles

As long as you are going to be charging your wedding expenses, you might as well earn some reward miles to help you pay for your honeymoon, or at least pay you back for booking your honeymoon. This is a great time to open a new credit card that will earn you miles or points for future or even current travel. You could actually get a discount on your airfare if you play your credit cards right!

8. Consider Working with a Honeymoon Specialist
