Congratulations on your marriage! Now, whatever you do, DON'T try to plan a honeymoon by yourself. It'll take forever, you'll get frustrated, and you could end up with a so-so experience. That's why you should use a honeymoon travel specialist to help plan and book your honeymoon. They'll help you find the perfect destination, create itineraries for the perfect honeymoon experience, and have you off to paradise in no time!
Here are 5 reasons to use a honeymoon travel specialist like myself for your honeymoon:
1. Knowledge of a variety of honeymoon properties:
Honeymoon travel specialists know various destinations and resort brands that are a cut above other types of resorts and properties for an amazing honeymoon.
Resorts that will offer you…
b. Romantic extras like candlelight dinners and a couple's massage
d. Romantic & pampering suites
e. Amazing spa experiences
All of these details are vitally important when it comes to having a great honeymoon experience.
2. The Best Honeymoon Packages:
A honeymoon travel consultant knows the best honeymoon packages that will enhance your honeymoon and the requirements to qualify for them!
Too often, couples think they can show up and receive the honeymoon amenities without understanding the qualifications or how to set them up in advance. Unfortunately, they are highly disappointed when they don't get any of the perks, which is a sour way to start your happily ever after.
3. Setting Up Special Experiences:
A honeymoon travel consultant can not only do all of the above but will also recommend, design, & set up unique and special experiences for your honeymoon.
Note: If you are working with a "honeymoon specialist" who doesn't guide you or recommend special experiences for you to enjoy on your honeymoon, then you are working with the wrong person.
Here are just a few special experiences a honeymoon specialist can design and set up to take your honeymoon from good to AMAZING!
Set up a private upgraded transfer with VIP service.
Schedule a couple's massage/breakfast in bed/picnic on the beach.
Set up off-site excursions, like a cultural tour, ziplining, swimming with dolphins, rum tasting, and so much more.
There are many other recommended must-do activities, sites to see, or places to eat that you can only experience in a specific destination.
4. Giving You VIP Status:
Your honeymoon consultant can make sure you and your new spouse are wowed upon arrival from the minute you step foot on your resort by…
a. Personally contact the resort concierge and sales team to notify them that they have VIP honeymooners arriving.
b. Sharing any special requests you may have with the appropriate team member to ensure they are implemented! (It's not just a comment on a booking that we hope gets seen).
c. Following up on the honeymoon amenities to ensure you receive them.
5. Skipping the 1-800-wait-on-hold and crossing your fingers that you get the help you need.
Let's face it: We've all experienced the 1-800 "call center" with a random agent who doesn't know you or your honeymoon from Adam! You're just a number to these types of call centers, and the last thing you want is for an error to happen during your honeymoon planning. A true honeymoon consultant will be with you from start to finish and care about you and every detail of your honeymoon. They will listen to what you want in a honeymoon experience so that they can recommend a destination and resort that are the perfect fit for you.
Any special requests? Even needs you may have while in your destination or after your honeymoon is complete. Let's face it: no online booking engine is going to do that.
I hope this blog post will help you have the best possible honeymoon for you and your partner to enjoy. And if you're feeling nervous about planning your honeymoon, don't worry—it's normal to worry about how well everything will work out. But don't sweat it. Your honeymoon specialist will help you make all the arrangements, find you the best value possible, and handle any emergencies that might arise during your honeymoon. And most of the time, they're more than happy to answer any questions you have before or during your honeymoon.
