The following are some tips for saving money on your honeymoon:
Go on a cruise
Another terrific travel option for couples is cruising. Not only are they romantic, but when compared to other types of vacations, they’re often much more affordable. For instance, if you want to go island hopping in the Bahamas, you’ll have to pay for airfare, transport between the islands, lodging, food, and entertainment. But many cities throughout the eastern U.S. offer cruises to the Bahamas, with itineraries that include several different islands. When you price out an all-inclusive cruise compared to flying to the Bahamas and traveling between islands on your own, you’ll see that cruises are usually much cheaper.
Avoid going into debt
It’s one thing if you book your trip on a credit card and pay it off right away—but it’s another if you spend far too much and spread it out over multiple credit cards, with no intention to pay it off anytime soon. The last thing you’ll want to deal with as a newlywed couple is mountains of debt. Not only can this put a financial strain on your new marriage, but you’ll end up paying far more in the end due to interest fees. A honeymoon doesn’t have to be extravagant or lengthy in order to be wonderful, so be sure to spend within your means. Realistically calculate how much you can afford to comfortably spend and stick to your budget.
Mention it’s your honeymoon
No matter what type of trip you decide on, be sure to mention to any booking agents that you’re going on your honeymoon. If there’s availability and they’re feeling generous, you may just get free perks and upgrades that you otherwise may have shelled out extra cash for.
