iLUXE Travel: Vendor Spotlight Part 2

A few weeks ago I published a post all about my chat with Shannon from iLUXE travel. I asked some of the top honeymoon related questions I get from brides and Shannon had the best answers! She truly is an expert in all things luxury travel and honeymoon planning.

Our conversation was filled with so much great advice that I actually had to write a second post, so today, in Part 2 of this vendor spotlight, I am sharing a few more of Shannon’s tips.

“Planning your honeymoon should be an exciting and stress free occasion. Here are some things to consider when planning your perfect honeymoon.”

1.      When should I start planning my honeymoon? The sooner the better. Honeymoons and Get-A-Ways wants to make your honeymoon perfect so we will work as long this takes to achieve that. Planning ahead allows you time to budget accordingly and get necessary documents needed should you be traveling to destination where you need and do not already have.

2.      Have an idea of your Geography. Yes, Seychelles, Maldives and Fiji are amazing honeymoon destinations, but not if you have only one week for your honeymoon. Picking an exotic location is ideal if you have enough travel time and don’t mind long flights. Some locations require over a day traveling time and you will need to adjust to a time difference.

3.      Know your budget. Airline fares play a significant role when planning your budget. If you are a frequent traveler, save your mileage and try to use your accumulated mile points. Many credit cards also offer airline mileage awards that may assist you as well.

4.      When do you want to leave? If you are getting married on a Saturday, you may want to rethink traveling the next day, especially when traveling to the Caribbean as most flights leave in the morning.

5.      What type of honeymoon are you looking for? Discuss with your fiancé exactly what is most important for you to experience while on your honeymoon: adventure, relaxation, touring, a little of everything? Communication is the key, we will be able to provide options with you of where to go and stay.

6.      What kind of resort are you looking for? All inclusive? Adult only? Many resorts offer all inclusive options, allowing you to know ahead of time exactly how much you are going to spend. If one chooses a non-all-inclusive hotel and has a steadfast budget in mind, many resorts have menus on their website so you can get a general idea of what you will be spending for meals.

7.      Do I need a Visa, do I need vaccinations? Some destinations do require Visas; your travel professional will be able to advise you of that requirement and assist in obtaining them should you need. Also important is what type of passport you are traveling under and many countries are now requiring passports valid 6 months after entering country. Always best to confirm with your doctor if they suggest vaccinations to where you are traveling it to an exotic destination.

8.      I don’t need insurance, this is my honeymoon and I will never cancel. There are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. Travel Insurance provides protection for your travel investment in case an unfortunate situation arises, such as sickness, bad weather, or civil unrest at your planned destination; just to name a few
