Creating a budget is a key element when saving money for your honeymoon, by knowing the exact amount of funds allotted for your trip expenses helps in reducing overspending.  Couples should consider a honeymoon registry in addition to or as an alternative to a wedding registry. Open a honeymoon savings account to put away a little extra cash each month towards your dream getaway. Let everyone know you are on your honeymoon; this may result in discounts or special services such as complimentary champagne, on-the-house desserts and gratis room upgrades, bring your wedding certificate for proof. Hire a travel agent to search for the best deals and book your honeymoon, sometimes letting a professional handle the details saves on time and money. Read on for a few more tips on ways to save on your honeymoon.

Research Online

Check the price of the dollar versus current currency rates around the world, some areas might surprise you in their affordability such as the Bahamas, Eastern Europe, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and the Mediterranean. Subscribe to email lists alerting recipients of travel price drops: be sure to choose reputable websites such as Travelocity, Orbitz, Expedia or TravelZoo. If the website is unknown to you, check and verify the business’s membership affiliations such as the American Society of Travel Agents or the United States Tour Operators Association. Research any history of complaints with the Better Business Bureau; this helps save money by avoiding potential scams or shady businesses.

Look for Off-Season Deals

Consider traveling to your honeymoon destination during low season, a great way to get a good deal at a dream location. The benefits of off season honeymoons include fewer crowds, more relaxed atmosphere and intimate opportunity to explore local attractions. Research an area’s local tourist bureau to acquire information on your destination’s low and high seasons. Keep in mind, there is a reason why desirable honeymoon locations have a low season and many of them are weather related from hurricanes to blizzards. After choosing a location, inquire about renovations or construction projects occurring during the time you wish to stay including your hotel, the surrounding area and popular attractions.

Local Destinations

Enjoying a local honeymoon allows newly married couples to rediscover and appreciate everything about the area and state of residence from local historical sites to museums to specialty theme parks. Plan a local honeymoon by selecting a local or nearby destination for significant savings particularly on airfare costs, closer destinations often feature cheaper fares. Stay at a romantic bed and breakfast, especially one that offers honeymooner accommodations. Inquire with local resorts regarding an all-inclusive honeymoon package; resulting in savings on overall room rates, meals, entertainment and activities. Book the honeymoon suite at your local high-end hotel, make a spa appointment, relish champagne dinners and arrive in style by limousine. If you are unsure of an awesome local destination, ask your family or friends about some of their favorite places.
