The hectic period around your wedding has come to an end, and you probably want some time to enjoy and relax with your spouse. A honeymoon is the best way to start your life together. Most newlyweds opt for exotic destinations that they may not be able to afford every year. If this is your wish too, then keep on reading and find out the best tips for your honeymoon trip.
Research your options
If your honeymoon destination is a place you have never been to before, it is a good idea to research your options beforehand. Talk with some friends who have visited the place, or go to travel agencies and pick up some brochures. They will definitely tell you everything you need to know starting with the trip itself, prices, places to stay and even places where you can go out. Check the climate and weather conditions and bring the necessary lotions, and wardrobe. You can also google the sights you want to visit and plan the honeymoon accordingly.
If you are on a budget, setting the money aside for some time before the actual trip is a great tip. Firstly, pick a destination, find the hotel or place you want to stay in, and take it from there. Calculate how much you will need for food, renting a car, or splurging. One of the simplest tricks is to look for restaurants, hotels, clubs, or shops that offer discounts for newlyweds, especially on their honeymoon.
It is a common fact that everyone, but especially women, brings unnecessary clothes to their trips but ends up wearing only three different outfits. If you don’t want to pay for extra luggage and you don’t want to carry heavy suitcases, it is best to bring multifunction clothes. If you are wondering what that is, it is bringing two shorts that you can mix and match with all five shirts you bring. Pack just one pair of sneakers and one fancy pair of shoes. A good tip is also to buy travel sized bottles of shampoos, lotions, creams, etc.
Rent a car
If you want to fully enjoy your honeymoon, walking everywhere is not an option. Many places you will want to visit are not in walking distance, so consider renting a car. Australia is a popular honeymoon destination where you have a lot of ground to cover if you want to experience it to the fullest, but luckily for you, Avis car hire is a service you can trust. They have a range of vehicles you can choose from, depending on your needs. If you keep track of their web page, you might even come across a discount on certain cars and get informed about the Australian traffic law. Safety is their number one priority so you can be sure that you are getting vehicles in perfect condition. For a totally carefree experience, book your car in advance and it will be ready for you as soon as you get there.
Many people hesitate when it comes to getting travel insurance, but you shouldn’t think about it for a second. Travel insurance keeps you safe throughout your trip. If for any reason you have to cancel your reservation, the insurance has got you covered, and you will probably be able to get a refund. If you lose your luggage or receive it damaged in any way, you will also get a half or full refund depending on the insurance policy. In case of some medical emergencies, the insurance covers the cost of the ambulance, medical bills, drugs or any other service from a doctor you might need. So, make this a mandatory expense when planning a honeymoon.
The whole process of planning can be quite stressful, so make your honeymoon an idyllic experience. With these five tips, you can take some pressure off from you and significantly cut on costs while still having the best time of your life.
