Honeymoon Planning – Book Online vs. Through a Travel Agent
Weddings are stressful enough, so planning the honeymoon phase shouldn’t add to the headaches and anxiety of the bride and groom. When booking a honeymoon, couples have the option of booking their stay, flight and other arrangements online individually, or going through a travel agent to accommodate all of their needs at once.
With an already full plate planning the details of the wedding, few couples have time to put in the work and online research to find the best price for their trip. From flight, hotel, car rental, and excursions, it can often be difficult even knowing where to begin online. And there are many factors that affect pricing, from day of the week you travel and time of day to amenities offered and more. Even the most organized person can easily feel overwhelmed.
Travel agents can help to make the honeymoon planning phase a painless one, while also saving you money in the process. Travel agents know the best deals, are familiar with the property and can put together the honeymoon package that is not only what you want, but at the best price. The best part is that all of the research is done for you, and you can be sure you are getting the best deal for your money. Travel agents are also often privy to specials, offered through the airlines and hotels, that the average person would not know about, and may not even be available online.
Utilizing the resources that a travel agent has to offer can also be helpful when selecting your honeymoon destination. The agents are very knowledgeable about the locations, many of which they have visited themselves, and can give you a first-hand account of what to expect. It is as simple as sharing your personal requests with the travel agent to identify the destination that might be the best fit for you as a couple.
