What to Ask:

Why use a travel agent over online self-booking?
Agents not only save you time and stress, but they also have access to special discounts and perks that are not available online. It is invaluable to have an insider perspective on a location. Not to mention, if something should go wrong while on your trip, you can just pass it off to your agent and enjoy the trip stress-free.

What kind of extras should we be looking for in an all-inclusive resort?
Activities and amenities vary from location to location. Make sure to find out if the resort is adults only, has the amenities you want (ocean view, terrace, balcony, butler service, etc.), and the activities you want (snorkeling, scuba diving, golf, great beach, local tours, etc.).

What is the best time of year to travel?
In regards to price, winter and spring break are most expensive, autumn is the least, and May-August are average. Take your destination’s weather into consideration – hurricane season is less costly for a reason.

What is a realistic budget?
It is often difficult to gauge the entire cost, from the resort, to food, transportation, travel documents, insurance, etc. A travel agent will help put facts and figures together, so you can create a realistic budget.

How do I know if I want all-inclusive or non-inclusive?
There are a number of pros and cons to each. An agent will help you talk through exactly what you are looking for in a honeymoon and steer you toward the type of resort that best fits your ideas.

Should we get insurance?
Depending on the types of insurance available, you are protected in case you have to cancel due to illness or catastrophic weather, or if you experience baggage loss, travel delays, or need emergency medical care while on your trip.

Are price quotes guaranteed?
Prices fluctuate and cannot usually be guaranteed until you have made a reservation and paid the deposit.

Do you offer honeymoon registry options?
For the couples that already have blenders and toasters, a honeymoon registry may be the ideal way to have the honeymoon of your dreams. Couples can register for things they want while on their honeymoon (candlelit dinner on the beach, wine tastings, massages, transportation, etc.) or they can set a dollar amount. Then guests purchase different items, services, or excursions for the couple to enjoy.
