How to lower your honeymoon budget

Honeymoons can be quite expensive and couples are always on the look-out for ways to spend less on their honeymoon while making the most of their short holidays. Now that honeymoon budgets are getting smaller and smaller, being able to find cheaper honeymoons is even more important. The simple yet effective tips listed in this article will enable you to find great budget deals while still allowing you to enjoy a dream honeymoon.

Show that you are newlywed
Amazingly enough, just letting it known that you are on your honeymoon is more than enough to get a handful of deals and perks. These perks can range from a better travel deal to discounts, or even free food in your hotel. You must have seen it in movies before, and real life is no different. You can even get better seats in your plane if you let the stewardess know that you are flying to the Bahamas or the Seychelles for your honeymoon. Some places will often have special honeymoon deals but even if they do not, they will be happy to throw in some discounts and free offers.

Book at the right time
Before running off to your honeymoon, it is always useful to first do some research about the location you're choosing. Moreover, one important thing to keep in mind is that it is much cheaper to travel off-season. As a matter of fact, the time at which you have your honeymoon can be a big factor in how much you spend, regardless of your destination. Obviously, if you are traveling at the busiest periods, even your flight ticket will be noticeably more expensive.

Honeymoon registry
A honeymoon registry is a website where you can register for your honeymoon. Once you've signed up, your family and friends can then purchase gift certificates. If you have selected a hotel that is covered by the registry, you can then tell your relatives and friends that you would prefer these gift certificates instead of more traditional wedding gifts. This will allow you to have a great honeymoon while needing to spend even less.

Frequent flyer miles
One easy way to lower your travel budget is to use frequent flyer miles to go to your exotic destination. Flyer miles are easy to rack up if you need to travel on a somewhat regular basis. However, even if you do not have any flyer miles, you can make it known before your wedding that you welcome flyer mile gifts. Most airlines indeed allow you to transfer your transfer miles to another person.
