Budget Honeymoon Travel Tip 2: Research Rewards
Before you book, look into hotels and resorts that offer "rewards" so you can take advantage of extra perks and even score free nights. Or, prior to the wedding, use a credit card that offers great travel rewards. For example, with every swipe of the Starwood Preferred Guest Card from American Express, you'll earn points that can be used toward free stays and upgrades at close to 1,000 participating Starwood properties in 93 countries. (Who would have thought spending all that money on the wedding could ultimately work in your favor!). The credit card you've been using for years may have a points system in place, so you could be well on your way to free flights and deals.
Budget Honeymoon Travel Tip 3: Avoid Peak Travel Times
Traveling in the "off season" can save you big bucks on airfare and lodging. Most hotel websites will show you a comparison of rates for each season. Avoid heading to warm weather spots over spring break and during the holiday rush. If you book just before or after the "peak" season, you'll have more money to spend on food and activities. Plus, the blissful quiet of a resort that's not packed with people fighting for good beach chairs is way more conducive to honeymooners anyway.
