Honeymooners will be spoilt for choice as they make their honeymoon plans. You should consider staying at an all-inclusive resort, such as the All-Inclusive Hotel Riu Cancun in Mexico – where you will know exactly how much you will need to spend as you can relax, knowing that all your food and drink has already been paid for as you enjoy your perfect holiday together. Adult’s only resorts are also ideal for honeymooners, where you won't surrounded by screaming children or large family groups. The Excellence Punta Cana is a top recommended Adults only resort, in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Escape2 pride ourselves on offering top class honeymoon resorts, so whichever resort you choose, you are in for a great time.

When Should You Begin Planning Your Honeymoon?

It’s best to start immediately as you may not have time with all the wedding planning you may still have to do. Choose from some of the best destinations at your own leisure. By planning ahead you will be able to get a head start at getting all the necessary documents in order and setting a budget accordingly for the holiday of a lifetime.

Honeymooners should check that they have enough disposable income to cover their magical Honeymoon. Consider if your resort is All-Inclusive, Bed and Breakfast or Room Only. This will affect how much spending money you need to put by. Check airline fares as they are sure to help you plan your budget.

Decide the month that you wish to go on your Honeymoon, discuss it with your Travel Consultant and see that it is possible to travel to your desired destination and that you will not be arriving during Hurricane Season. Have your homework done when it comes to when you want to be away.

Be Careful Where You Book Your Honeymoon

A Honeymoon is a special holiday as you start your lives together and even though it may be costly, it is worth it. But be careful if you are booking a honeymoon package online through an automated booking system. You may book this way but be ready that you will rarely see pennies saved, quite the opposite in fact. In our eyes it is safer to book your Honeymoon and receive the personal touch that a Travel Consultant like Escape2 provides, where you will be able to make all the necessary arrangements that you desire.

What Type of Honeymoon Do You Want to Experience?

Be it unbelievable adventures, touring, relaxation, going on cultural and historical tours or a bit of everything, couples will be in seventh heaven when it comes to things they can do during their Honeymoon. Discuss all your favourites with your partner and once you have made a decision your travel agent will be able to provide you with a host of fantastic options of where you should stay and some incredible things that you must definitely see and do.

It is a question that is commonly asked by travellers embarking on a long trip and the answer is being insured is highly advisable for all travellers. For whatever reason, if your flights were cancelled or if you needed to receive urgent medical treatment while on holidays, you will feel much better in the knowledge that you have travel insurance as it provides total protection and peace of mind.
