    Hiya we have started to look into ideas for our July 2017 Hhneymoon and I am very drawn to a couple of specific honeymoon providers including one called H0n3ym00n Dr3amz. They seem to be offering really special packages but I am afraid that you're just paying more for a holiday you could find more cheaply elsewhere?

    Are you using a company to book your honeymoon and if so are they big brand or local etc? Thanks! :)

    We booked through [email protected] We had an idea of what we wanted so they then put it together for us, it was tailor made for us rather than being a package.

    I'd suggest doing some research and get quotes from at least 3 travel providers.

    Because of the type of trip were doing, we've booked everything ourselves, saves quite a bit on a package with V1rg1n. Would have been happy to pay a bit more for the wedding planner etc etc but couldn't justify the difference on this one.
    That being said although I work in the industry we have to take our hols at the same time as the schoolies so generally we book as a package - flight prices are a usually nightmare by the time we are ready to book.
    If you are doing a standard 7/14 nights AI in X resort, book through an agent, much easier and simpler.

    We went with a cruise that was through Th0mps0n, but it wasn't specifically a honeymoon cruise. We just liked the look of it. Only thing I would say about them was that they knew it was our honeymoon, and I'd hope there might be some acknowledgement of it, but there was nothing. I wasn't necessarily expecting free upgrades or anything, but a card in the room or complimentary bottle of champagne would have been a nice gesture.

    Thanks everyone :) One more question - how long in advance did you look into booking? x

    We are hoping to book next year but perhaps nearer the wedding. We want to go to Thailand and OH has a friend in a TA that can get us a good deal. We want to go in November/December due to seasons so we will see

    FutureMrsW - depending on what type of holiday you want determines when they get put on sale. If you are looking for a package with [email protected] C00k etc, they will go on sale 1 year before the season starts. So for holidays in winter season 2016 (Nov 16 - apr17) holidays will be going on sale about now.
    For scheduled flights these go on sale around 11 months before departure but you can book with some tour operators like Ku0ni before that as they will estimate the flight price for you.
    Low cost flights will come out between 6 and 8 months before departure.
    If you book a package book it as early as you can, you get to secure the majority with a low deposit. January is when the sales hit. If you are going away straight after you are married best thing to do is look at next years prices for a guide and save up, then book in the January before and take advantage of any discounts.

    We got a quote from travel agent to Bali then checked direct with the hotel. We saved £2000 by going direct and booking flights, plus we got extras that the hotel gave. We were a bit worried going direct, but it paid off!
