Honeymoon Frugally, Not in Debt

Your honeymoon is probably one of the most significant and most extravagant trips that you will take in your life. It is your first chance to get away as a newly married couple and your last vacation before settling into your new life. While it is essential to make sure that your honeymoon is a trip that you will be able to remember and reminisce about, it is also vital that it is a trip you can afford and not one that will start your new life off with a large amount of debt. Check out these tips to create an unforgettable honeymoon without getting yourself into debt. 

Consider Traveling Off-Season

When you have determined what you would most like to do on your honeymoon, look for areas to travel to that will provide you with what you want even on off-peak travel seasons. There are many locations that will offer significantly reduced rates on travel and accommodations if you visit on the season where there are fewer tourists. You may not have the best weather in the area, but you will be able to enjoy fewer crowds and a more intimate setting for your getaway.

Book Your Travel Early or Late

When you prepare your itineraries at least 10 to 12 months in advance, you can save almost 50 percent on both flights and hotel accommodations. The earlier you book, the easier it is to take advantage of the more inexpensive rooms in a hotel. You can also save a significant amount of money as well if you wait until the last minute. Last-minute flights and hotel deals can have the same amount of savings as companies want to fill up flights and rooms to full capacity even if it means giving them at a discounted rate. Waiting until the last minute is a better option for those who are not set on a particular destination.

Consider Bundling Your Vacation

You can save a lot of money and have an easier time of keeping track of your travel accommodations by bundling your flight, hotel, accommodations, and excursions all from one place. Companies will work together to create the bundles and offer discounts as a way to get the other companies to promote and recommend their services for these bundles. To score some of the best bundle deals, you should try some of the online search tools and take advantage of their advertised sales. 

Research the Airports

If booking a flight for your honeymoon, you may be able to save a significant amount off of your airfare by flying from or to a larger airport. If you live a few hours from a major airport or your destination is a little distance from one, the savings from flying out of a major hub can definitely make it worth the drive. If you plan on flying via a particular airline due to points or travel rewards, find the closest airport that is considered one of the airline's primary hubs. Not only will you save on the flight but you will also find more flight options available.

Find Accommodations That Provide Extra Amenities

Sometimes picking the right hotel can save you a lot of money in the end. When booking, opt for accommodations that provide extras such as free breakfast, shuttle service, or package deals with local attractions. You can also check with the concierge or front desk staff at the hotels to see if they offer any coupons or discounts on attractions you would like to enjoy during your vacation. Don't forget to tell them it is your honeymoon, they may offer you some complimentary items to celebrate your occasion. 

Don't go into debt planning your honeymoon. Follow the tips above to create an amazing getaway for a price that won't break the bank.
