1. Travel Outside Peak Dates
If you can travel outside of peak dates such as July, August and holidays like Easter and Christmas almost as a rule of thumb airfares will be cheaper and this rule applies to almost all destinations worldwide.
2. Low Season Special Offers
Many beach hotels in Thailand, Malaysia, Bali, Maldives, Mauritius and Sri Lanka have Free Night offers in their low season usually from May to October. Eg. Pay for 5 nights, get 2 free. So it’s always best to look out for these offers especially as these long-haul destinations are perfect honeymoon spots.
3. Book Early for Best Value
People may think you can get a bargain at the last minute but you won’t be so lucky if you are trying to go further afield for a Longhaul Honeymoon destination. You will miss out on special offers, the best accommodation, flight options, room choices and special early booking rates exclusive to Sunway, so there are great benefits to booking early especially when you are on a tight wedding budget.
4. Cruising in the Caribbean
If the Caribbean is your destination of choice and you are worried about hurricane season, a cruise is definitely worth considering. Cruise ships have the highest standard of technology and can reroute to alternative Caribbean islands should the itinerary be affected by bad weather. Sunway work with the world’s leading cruise lines that offer fantastic on board facilities with the highest standards of cabins, dining options, activities and entertainment. Booking your cruise drinks and dining packages in advance can also save you a lot of money. Popular honeymoon cruise packages include three centre holidays such as 3 nights Las Vegas, 1 night Miami and a 7 night Caribbean cruise. Our award winning cruise specialists can help you to choose the best cruise combination package to suit your tastes and budget.
5. Avoiding Tropical Storms
If you’re worried about tropical storms during the so called storm season (June to Sept/Oct) a top tip to consider is West Coast Mexico. Opt for the beautiful resort of Cabo San Lucas which doesn’t get these problems and probably has a better climate all year round or Aruba in the Caribbean as this is just below the Tropical Storm Belt and offers beautiful white powdery sandy beaches if that’s your thing!
6. Choose All inclusive
Choosing an All Inclusive holiday is a great way of saving money as everything is included once you arrive in resort. All Inclusive holidays now are quite comprehensive so you really don’t need to put your hand into your pocket and let’s face it, after the whole build up and ordeal of a wedding, sometimes just flaking and being pampered has just the desired effect. Popular all Inclusive resorts include Maldives, Cancun in Mexico and Caribbean Islands like Barbados, St Lucia and Dominican Republic. Club Med also offer over 64 all-inclusive sun resorts worldwide.
7.Choose Twin Centre Honeymoons
If saving money is important then sampling two destinations in one trip works really well. Bangkok and Phuket, Thailand twin centre honyemoon for example, New York & Cancun All Inclusive or Las Vegas with Cancun All Inclusive are popular, a classic shop and drop honeymoon. With All Inclusive holidays the advantage is that you will pay for everything upfront and then you won’t have to worry about any surprise bills at check out and you can use that extra money on your city break for shopping, entertainment or sampling top restaurants.
