Honeymoon Travel Tips

This week has been crazy.  All exciting and wonderful things of course!  We have expanded our office (yes you can expect a blog on that soon enough :)) and this weekend is our office holiday party!  My marketing director has been out and it has been NUTS!  So I apologize for the time between blogs, but next week you’ll hear about the rest of my wedding!  Today I want to share with you some great information from TheHoneymoon.com.  This is a website where you create a Honeymoon registry.  I have one of these and it is the best thing I did.  This way I’m not getting more toasters when I really need a trip to Versailles and a ride from the airport!  I’ll tell you all about this also next week.  It’s something I recommend to all the people I meet who are getting married!

I got this information in an email from TheHoneymoon.com and wanted you to enjoy it too!

Planning

1. Researching your trip before you leave can save you time, money, hassle and ensure you don’t miss out on anything exciting you could have done. Do some research online or with travel guides and ask your travel agent for ideas. You may want to book some tours, activities or shows in advance.
2. Contact your cellular carrier if you are traveling internationally and need to be accessible on your honeymoon. You may just need to activate international calling or purchase an international data plan. Don’t forget to ask about the costs to avoid an unpleasant surprises when you get your phone bill.
3. Credit card companies are quite good at noticing changes in the ways cards are typically used since such changes may signal possible theft or fraud. To ensure uninterrupted card service on your honeymoon, call the card issuer beforehand to let them know that you will be using the card away from home.
4. Tell everyone you talk to about your travel plans that the trip is for your honeymoon. You may get some great deals.
5. Don’t try to cram in too much to do on your honeymoon. Leave some time for romance!
6. Don’t forget to let your guests know that you are registered at www.thehoneymoon.com!

Packing

1. You want to make the best of it even if your luggage gets lost or delayed, so: (a) Pack at least one change of clothes and some essentials such as your prescriptions, travel documents, valuables, swimwear and sunglasses in your carry on. (b) Pack half of each person’s belongings in each suitcase. (c) Put photocopies of your honeymoon itinerary inside of each piece of luggage to ensure the airline knows where to send your luggage.
2. In addition to photocopying all of your important documents and carrying them with you, scan or type up everything and e-mail the information to your email account so you can access your documents from anywhere in the world.
3. Prepare a master packing list well before the wedding so that you don’t have to spend any extra time debating about what to bring on your honeymoon. Check the items off as you place them in your suitcases so that you don’t forget anything important.
4. Sneak a little honeymoon surprise for your new spouse into one of your bags and don’t forget to leave space in your luggage for some honeymoon mementos.

The Honeymoon

1. Take some photos for us! Your honeymoon might be featured in Honeymoons Magazine if you send them in with a story about your honeymoon.
2. Be cautious when traveling with expensive jewelry. It’s best not to bring any, but don’t flaunt it if you do.
3. Splurge a little. Don’t let $100 or $200 stop you from doing something you will always remember… take a sunset cruise, go on the excursion that excites you both the most, treat yourselves to a couples massage or a room upgrade. These are the perfect gifts for your honeymoon registry and are what make great honeymoon memories.
4. Don’t get too bummed if everything doesn’t go exactly as planned. Move on and make the best of the situation. Enjoy your honeymoon!
