While it may seem like fun to book your honeymoon solo, there are countless advantages to hiring a travel agent to help you out. Their connections and expertise can lead to huge savings on your part, which are especially welcome after spending $10,000 or more on your wedding. Read on to learn three tips to keep in mind when working with a travel agent:
Know Your Budget
Travel agents are dedicated to ensuring that you have the vacation of a lifetime, so it’s not uncommon for one to suggest that you stay at an all-inclusive luxury resort, instead of the midrange hotel you’ve been planning on. While it’s true that the luxury resort may have more to offer, you need to say no if it’s not in your budget. Nobody knows your budget better than you, so don’t be afraid to pass on the travel agent’s suggestions if you feel that they are out of your reach. Keep your budget in mind at all times during your appointments with the travel agent, and you can ensure that your expenses don’t surpass your spending limit.
Be Very Open
In order to plan the perfect honeymoon, the travel agent will need to get to know you and your needs very well. This means being as open with him or her as you would be with your doctor, such as sharing with the agent all of your medical, exercise, and dietary requirements. For example, if you have diabetes or a heart condition, your travel agent can help you find a hotel with easy access to a hospital, just in case. If you are vegan, your agent might even be able to find a vegan-friendly hotel.
