If you are wondering how to navigate the pandemic while planning a honeymoon or destination wedding, these insightful tips by travel agent Tammy O’Hara of Million Miles Travel Agency will help ensure your travel plans go smoothly.
Planning your destination wedding or honeymoon during COVID-19 can be extremely stressful. There are so many things to think about concerning travel, social distancing, and the safety of your loved ones; it almost seems impossible.
Don’t throw in the towel just yet. You can still have the wedding or honeymoon of your dreams despite these trying times. Above all else, COVID-19 has brought us back to the true intimacy of our relationships, while prompting us to focus and be present with our loved ones. In response to the major concerns regarding travel, there have been many precautions taken to reduce the risk of contracting the disease. There are plenty of options for everyone to safely celebrate your special moment, just keep these tips in mind when planning your travel.
1) Don’t delay!
As more people get vaccinated, more and more brides are comfortable booking their destination wedding or honeymoon. The really amazing deals that were available at the beginning of the year are beginning to dry up. If you have a special wedding date then you need to grab the date ASAP.
2) Protect yourself with travel insurance.
No matter if it is a quick getaway or a longer honeymoon, having comprehensive travel insurance is very important to protect your travel investment and yourself.
3) Be flexible.
As travel ramps up, flights will change, resorts may open or close or be at reduced capacity, or the entry requirements for certain countries may not be feasible for your travel plans (mandatory quarantines), it is important to keep an open mind and be ready to make quick decisions.
4) Time is your friend.
Booking 1-2 years in advance is still a good idea. It is a budget-friendly way to fund a bigger destination wedding or honeymoon, and with sufficient travel insurance, it is almost financially risk-free.
5) Work with an experienced travel advisor.
It is tempting to go at it on your own, but a great travel advisor is worth their weight in gold. Whatever savings you may think you will keep by not hiring a travel advisor does not compare with the time and experience that an advisor adds to your team.
In short, COVID-19 will not be around forever, and the world will open up once again. Don’t let today’s troubles weigh on tomorrow’s joy. There are still many ways that you can enjoy your honeymoon or go on the destination wedding of your dreams. It’s just going to take a little extra planning to ensure that you and your partner, as well as your family and friends, remain safe. We hope that these tips will allow you to walk confidently towards the celebration of your love.
