Along with saving money the traditional way, here are a few other tips for how you can save up money for a fabulous honeymoon.
1. Figure out what’s most important to you
What part of the honeymoon are you most excited about? If you’re dreaming of lush accommodations, consider staying closer to home instead of spending on plane tickets. If you love the adventure of a faraway place and know you won’t be spending much time in the hotel, consider Airbnb or a less expensive hotel.
2. Work with a travel agent
While you may have thought travel agents were going the way of the dodo, they’re actually a really great (and FREE) resource for helping you plan your trip. In some cases, they can even get you upgraded experiences and perks at no additional cost.
3. Go local
You don’t have to fly somewhere exotic to have an absolutely fabulous honeymoon. Consider places that are within driving distance (like my sister, who drove with her new husband up and down the coast from California to Oregon). There are also some lovely trains – we took a gorgeous train ride between Portland and Seattle.
4. Consider alternative airports
Where we live, we are within a few hours drive from 4 different airports. Additionally, when we’ve spotted last minute super cheap flights, we’ve flown into a European city we’ve already explored, as a quick (and less expensive) stop to our intended European destination. Being flexible can really pay off!
