The Perfect Honeymoon: where to start? What are the most important factors to consider?

Everyone is different, One person might want to climb Everest and another might want to lay on a beach in Bora Bora. When looking at honeymoons, you need to plan what destination will be good weather wise. You might want to visit India in June but that its monsoon and you could end up with a rain check!

What would you say are the main mistakes people make when organising their honeymoon? Or maybe the main misconceptions they tend to have? 

Make sure you research. We all have an idea of where we would like to go, but is the destination going to provide you what you want ? Have you looked at the hotels enough to know that its going to perfect. Don’t book a city if you want a beach holiday.

New honeymoon favourite for this and next year? Have you noticed any trend?

New and unusual destinations, people are really trying to push the boat out in terms of where to go. More adventurous and unusual places such as French Polynesia and trekking the Himalayas. We have also seen an increase in enquiries for Thailand and Sri Lanka.

Anything you would like to add?

It can take a lot of time and effort planning a honeymoon, but it is one of those tasks you can hand over to a travel agent to do all the leg work for you. This doesn’t mean it will be more expensive, in fact a lot of agents have access to special honeymoon offers such as upgrades and free services for honeymooners.
