When it comes to planning your wedding, the honeymoon can sometimes get overlooked. Because the time around your wedding is often spent dealing with ceremony details, finding a venue and booking a caterer, your special post-wedding vacay often means trying to navigate the high-stakes world of rising airfare rates and booking the last AirBnb available.
After all of the months spent planning your big day, there’s nothing you’d rather do than sit back, relax, and set sail on your ultimate getaway, so why not let someone else handle the planning? In order to ease the stress of traveling with your new spouse, here are three reasons you should use a travel agent for your honeymoon.
1. Time saving
With all of the time spent putting the finishing touches on your ceremony and reception, it is far more likely that you will have less time than you think to spend planning a vacation on top of that. A travel agent can do all of the hard work for you while giving you more time to think about your vows. Set up a time to meet with a travel agent and discuss your ideas for the ultimate honeymoon. Come up with a plan of a few destinations you would be interested in, along with a date range and budget. This will allow your agent to make the most of their time and yours.
2. Travel Upgrades
A travel agent can not only save you tons of money in the long run by finding the best deals, but they can also use their connections to hook you up with instant vacay upgrades, often including first-class seats on the flight and an oceanview room. If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own private tour guide, wine tasting session or spa experience, travel agents are your ultimate go-to for complete customization. Unlike the average person trying to book a vacation, travel agents have access to tons of resources that allow their clients to live like royalty and get a ton of extra perks in the process, like resorts and activities you may have never known about.
Ever arrive at your vacation destination and realize that it truly isn’t how you imagined? With your travel agent, you’ll have a constant backup to talk to should you run into any unforeseen circumstances. Think of it like having your own fairy godmother right at the touch of your phone. Instead of spending your trip waiting for it to be over, just give them a call and they can make your wishes come true. If your room isn’t cutting it for you or your tour guide ends up bailing, travel agents are there to provide support and make other arrangements.
