Did you think that planning your wedding was pretty stressful? Well, that’s not where all the stress ends, unfortunately. The majority of couples find that organizing and planning for their honeymoon can be just as stressful. That’s because there is so much pressure on them to arrange a fantastic getaway in an idyllic location, and to have a whole load of fun once they arrive. But honeymoons can be extremely expensive and all of the stress associated with them could cause some major arguments between the two of you.
Want to ensure that you can enjoy your honeymoon without a hitch? Here are some tips that can help you do that.
Start Saving Now
There’s no getting around the expense of a honeymoon. Even if you do try and do it on a very tight budget, you will still find that it can be considerably costly. So, it’s a good idea to start saving well in advance. You should also consider how to fix your credit as an improved credit rating for the two of you will make it easier to find some financing that can fund your trip. If you are really worried about how you are going to afford this dream holiday, you could always just ask your wedding guests for cash gifts.
Let Everyone Know You’re On Your Honeymoon
When you start booking flights and accommodation, it’s a good idea to let everyone know. Most hotels and airlines give you the chance to leave any special notes at booking, so it’s worth mentioning that you are traveling for your honeymoon. Then you might be surprised with an upgrade when you arrive to check-in for your flight or hotel. What better way to start your special honeymoon?!
Update All Travel Documents
Are you planning on taking your partner’s surname once you are married? If so, then you will need to make sure that all of your travel documents are updated to show your new name before you head off on honeymoon. Otherwise, this could cause some trouble for you at the airport. You might not be able to travel if your passport doesn’t show your new name, for instance. It’s a good idea to contact your country’s department of travel to find out exactly what needs to be updated once you do change your surname.
Always Take Out Insurance
Whatever you do, do not forget to take out sufficient travel insurance for the both of you. If you will be visiting more than one country during your trip, you might need to take out separate policies for each destination. But this is something you can check with your chosen insurance provider. If you don’t get travel insurance, then you could fall into some serious financial issues if one of you ends up ill or injured while you are away, as you will have to pay for all medical treatment yourself. And that can be extremely expensive!
Hopefully, all the tips above help you organize your perfect honeymoon! Have a great time!
