For many happy couples, planning a wedding can be time-consuming and stressful. You may be dreaming about the days when you will finally get to relax on your honeymoon but finding the time to plan the trip details is an added challenge. Travel agents alleviate the stress of honeymoon planning and help you make married memories to treasure forever. Here’s what should you know about working with a travel agent to plan your dream honeymoon.  

Travel Agents are Experts 

Whether you are looking forward to relaxing on a beach or hoping to hike your way through your honeymoon, travel agents have the expertise to make your wishes a reality. The travel agents at LoveShack Vacations have professional resources and gather first-hand experience by visiting honeymoon destinations and resorts. They know which hotels have swim-up bars, the most beautiful beaches, and the best restaurants.  

By using a travel agent, you save the time and stress of researching your travel options. The services they provide go beyond just booking your trip. A travel agent will also help you if any issues arise during travel, such as delayed flights or lost luggage. And best of all, LoveShack travel agents have access to competitive pricing and exclusive promotions, to help make the most of your honeymoon budget!  

Know Your Honeymoon Budget

When you discuss your honeymoon with a travel agent, they will ask you for your budget. It’s important to have a solid understanding of what you are willing to spend so that they can find your ideal trip within your price range. Does your budget include meals, drinks, and entertainment? This can help determine if an all-inclusive resort is right for you. 

Creating a honeymoon registry or “Honeymoon Fund” is a great way to allow friends and family to contribute to your special trip. It is best if your initial budget does not include these contributions, as the amount can’t be predicted or counted upon. Instead, use any honeymoon contributions to enhance your experience: a room upgrade, spa treatments, a special tour, and more. 

What’s Your Travel Style? 

Do you and your fiancé prefer active vacations or relaxing ones? Do you like museums and architecture? Do you want to spend your evenings out on the town or in quiet seclusion? Do you want to travel somewhere warm?  

These questions can help you understand how each person prefers to travel. You may have similar travel preferences, or you may be approaching your honeymoon from two different viewpoints.  

Choosing the Destination

It’s common for couples to hear a lot of opinions from others about where to go and what to do. You may have a destination in mind, or you may be seeking out a travel agent because you are unsure or having difficulty narrowing down your options. A LoveShack Agent can guide you through the planning process, whether you are deciding between resorts or between countries. 

Remember that your honeymoon, much like your wedding, is unique and special. It is your vacation, and your travel agent can help you plan and customize your honeymoon in the ways that matter to you.
