flight1So you’re planning your honeymoon? Congratulations! The honeymoon is an important part of the wedding experience, and a much-needed escape after months of exciting, yet exhausting and sometimes frustrating, wedding planning.

To unlock the secrets of honeymoon bliss that will make even your best friend green with envy, check out these tips from the trusted travel consultants at Flight Centre. Some of the most travel-wise people in the world, Flight Centre staff members know that planning your honeymoon should be as relaxing as the honeymoon itself.

When it comes to honeymoon planning, most couples try to select the destination first, but experience has shown a more productive way to begin. Unless your dream destination has already been set in stone, first decide what type of vacation you want and then narrow down your list of destinations accordingly. Your choices are virtually unlimited.

The resort option

For an all-inclusive honeymoon you can’t beat the value for money option of a resort. Often set in the most picturesque places in the world, they include pools, private beaches and golf courses, as well as culinary delights and relaxing spas.

All-inclusive resorts streamline the enjoyment process by including everything — your room, transfers, recreational facilities, meals and drinks — all in one price. Without the worries of wondering how much everything little thing will cost, you are free to live the high life and experience everything you want as often as you want it.

Most resorts have honeymoon specials where they offer little extras like a romantic turndown, complete with rose petals, or upgrade the couple’s room at no extra charge.

Take a Cruise

If an all-inclusive resort sounds tempting but too stationary, consider taking a cruise. Cruises are floating resorts that whisk you away to one exotic port after another. Whether you want a cultural cruise to the Mexican Riviera or a wildlife adventure up the Alaskan coast, your Flight Centre consultant will match you and your betrothed to the perfect floating experience.


Something for the more adventurous

If the idea of lying on a beach sounds about as exciting as a nap, then shift to a higher gear and take an adventure vacation, especially if you and your fiancée share a kindred spirit for outdoor exhilaration. Whether it’s white-water rafting down the Zambezi River, hiking up Kilimanjaro or a trek through Nepal, sharing the experience will become a vital bond you both will share forever.

Explore the ancient Mayan culture and then round your honeymoon off in Cancun.


Cultural highlights

Cultural and historical trips are fascinating and romantic ways to reconnect with the past. Visit a famous European city — Paris, London, Rome…the list goes on — and inhale the culture and soak up the sights. Using London as a springboard you can tour through the rest of Europe once you’ve seen all there is to see in this great city.
