Travel Tips for Honeymooners

December 12th, 2012

Honeymoon Wishes wants you to have the honeymoon of your dreams! Now that your travel date is getting closer… we want to share a few travel tips from our staff to ensure your dream trip is a reality.

Travel Tips for our Honeymooners from the Honeymoon Registry

1. When you pack, pack 1/2 in each other’s suitcase – just in case one gets lost.

2. When you travel to a beach destination, bring your own snorkel gear. When compared to purchasing on the island, buying at home can be half the price and often even less than renting them.

3. In a carry-on pack one outfit, your bathing suit and any prescription medications, just in case your luggage is lost or you have to wait to check into your room.

4. When you rent a car, take a picture of any dings or scratches so you won’t get charged or have any difficulties.

5. If you are looking for a great lunch at a great price, here’s a unique idea: try a local culinary school’s extraordinary meals prepared by student chefs.

6. Take a photo album with you with snapshots of your family and wedding to pass along to people you meet.

7. If you are on a budget, split your cash into envelopes, either by day or by budget for shopping, activities, gifts, etc.

8. If you are going to a large resort complex, bring along some walkie-talkies (not allowed in Cuba) to keep in touch with one another on the property. Many cell phones don’t work internationally or charge extra fees.

9. Leave plenty of time for romance and relaxation! Don’t plan too much or move around, switching hotels. Moving around means a lot of packing and unpacking, checking in and out and waiting for transportation, just sit back, relax and enjoy your sweetheart.

10. Let everyone know where you are registered, ask your wedding party to help by posting your registry information to Facebook, emailing all your contacts or you can print out announcement cards to distribute out showers/parties.
