How to Plan a Honeymoon on a Budget

Published

on

Organizing a wedding is a big outlay. Although it is once in a lifetime and you think it is worth it, there are also ways to reduce expenses. If you do not want to skimp on the banquet, you can do it with the honeymoon. And enjoy a honeymoon on a budget.

It is not necessary to choose a very expensive destination if it is not the moment. You will have time to make that trip in all that life together that awaits you. Nor do you carry souvenir bags for all your friends and family.

So, can you have a great honeymoon for little money? Of course!

In fact, the most expensive trips are not always the most enjoyed. Surely your parents or grandparents settled for a weekend away from home or a few days in the Canary Islands or Mallorca. And they have an unforgettable memory that they have told you over and over again.

 A closer destination

Some couples believe that the further they go, the better the honeymoon will be. And that is not true at all.

It is true that there are incredible places on the other side of the planet. And probably your dream is to cross the pond even if you have to spend more than 10 hours on a plane.

However, the travel budget is more expensive due to transport costs. And logically, the further, the more it will cost.

If you now have a limited budget for your honeymoon, think about closer destinations. In Europe, there are countries with a lot of charm and perfect for a few days of relaxation, culture, or adventure. And even Spain has corners to discover that would surely surprise you.

Shorter vacations

The more days you are traveling, the more you will disconnect from everything. It is another myth that is not always fulfilled.

Some newlyweds spend two or three weeks getting to know the world. In the end, they arrive more tired than they left and do not enjoy it at all.

In a few days, you will be able to rest and enjoy yourself a lot. Of course, try to take at least a week, especially if you are a few hours away by plane.

Two trips are preferable. One after the wedding and one later than spending it all at a destination.

And if you have a low budget, your pockets will appreciate it.

Set a spending cap

We all know that the cost of travel is not just the price of the hotel and transportation.

Once at the destination, we usually make purchases, excursions, and other superfluous expenses that in the end double the initial cost or even more.

If that’s going to be a ruin, it’s best to set a maximum you can afford. It is not necessary to buy gifts for everyone. The trip is for you and the rest do not need to bring anything because it will also be noticeable in the weight of the suitcase.

Avoid the high season

Celebrating a wedding in the summer has many advantages. But also a drawback when it comes to the honeymoon.

And it is that in most destinations it is high season, and therefore, the prices are higher. A good option, if you want a specific place, is to postpone the trip for a time that is cheaper. That as long as the weather does not prevent it.

Sometimes, it is better to leave those days for later and after the wedding to focus on other things such as enjoying that new stage.

Organize it on your own

Have you thought about looking for everything on your own? Travel agencies provide security and in this type of trip many prefer not to risk.

But it is also true that these companies have to charge because they make a living from it. And also, everything that bears the nickname “honeymoon” or “honeymoon” is always more expensive.

If you are smart with tracking and shopping on the Internet, you can search for everything without hiring an agency.

It’s more of a hassle and involves time that you probably don’t have but you can also save a lot. Perhaps a friend or brother who is used to traveling a lot can help you. Or do it ahead of time before getting into the last-minute wedding preparations.

These are some ideas to fully enjoy a honeymoon despite having a limited budget. And if you still decide to postpone it, don’t worry. The important thing is the new stage that you start as a marriage. And that is priceless.
