Planning a honeymoon during COVID isn't easy, but it isn't impossible. You need to know how to plan appropriately and make sure that it ticks all your boxes to avoid compromising on your dream honeymoon.
This article will cover everything from how to pick your destinations, how to plan your multi-destination honeymoon properly, and how to do all of this during the coronavirus pandemic.
How Comfortable Do You Feel Traveling?
One of the biggest things to consider is how comfortable you and your partner feel traveling during COVID.
Are you vaccinated?
Do you have health problems?
Does your country of choice have restrictions?
Knowing where you set your boundaries will help you choose destinations that you are comfortable with and will help to ensure that you have a great time on your honeymoon.
If you are not comfortable traveling during the pandemic, consider planning your honeymoon in the future, as this will give you enough time to get comfortable with the idea.
Choose Your Destinations
When planning a multi-destination honeymoon, you must know precisely where you want to go, or at least which areas of the world you want to visit.
Try writing down a list of all the places that you and your partner would love to visit. Then group them in terms of geography. After all, visiting several countries in Europe will be easier than one in Europe and Australia!
If there are certain activities that you would like to do, include them. For example, you may not even need to leave the country if you want a skiing honeymoon; you could visit several nearby destinations instead.
Once you have narrowed down where in the world you would like to go, think about traveling between those places. Can you drive between them, or do you need to fly?
Next, check whether there are currently any travel restrictions to and between those places. Remember that COVID guidelines and regulations are constantly changing. So, traveling around one country may be more accessible.
Set Your Budget
Although planning your dream multi-destination honeymoon may seem like a fantasy, remember that someone must pay for everything. So, once you have your ideal honeymoon mapped out, consider how to pay for it.
In some cases, you may need to scale back your plans or stick to a budget while you are there. Use your budget wisely and make it work for you not to spend too much money.
Get Some Professional Planning Help
When planning a multi-destination honeymoon, it is easy to get overwhelmed quickly. There is just so much to plan before even considering the problems that COVID poses.
So, make your life easier and enlist the help of a professional, such as a holiday planner. They will help you make a realistic plan that is within your budget. They may even recommend places or activities!
These professionals need to stay up to date on all of the latest COVID guidelines so they will be able to advise you on what you need to travel to your destination of choice.
The biggest problem with planning a honeymoon during the COVID pandemic is that everything is currently changing. There are new guidelines, new border closures, new boosters, and new strains. Everything is in flux.
So, think about how far away your honeymoon is and how likely it is that the travel landscape will change between now and then. Do you need to get any vaccines before traveling, insurance, or special equipment (e.g., skiing)?
Having everything prepared in advance will help you make the trip as enjoyable and smooth as possible.
Choose Your Activities
Chances are, you want to do different activities.
Do you want to go skiing in Colorado?
Wine tasting in Paris?
Swim with pigs in the Bahamas?
Try to choose a mix of activities for both of you.
There is no need to plan your honeymoon down to the minute, but by having a rough idea of what activities you would like to do, you can make sure that you are making the most out of your honeymoon.
Knowing what you want to do and where will also help you budget your time. You may only need a few days in some destinations, whereas you may need a week in other places. This will help with the planning.
Consider a Domestic Honeymoon
If you are getting overwhelmed with all the travel restrictions and planning, consider having your multi-destination honeymoon in your own country. This way, you can focus on travel.
Every country has its own extraordinary things on offer. You just must find them! Consider activities that you have never tried before, or even choose a remote location to get away and relax.
The great thing about a domestic honeymoon is that you can hire a car without any qualms and drive around at your leisure without the need to worry about COVID travel restrictions. It will make planning a lot easier.
Leave Time to Relax
When planning a multi-destination honeymoon, it is straightforward to travel everywhere. However, running from one place to another will not make for a relaxing honeymoon; it will only make you stressed.
Make sure that you leave a few free days to do nothing but relax and to make sure that you have enough time to soak up the place you are in. You want your honeymoon to be memorable, not stressful.
Remember that you can always revisit places later in life. There is no need to do everything on your honeymoon. This is the time for you both to enjoy your time together as you embark on this new period in life.
So, make your honeymoon the best holiday ever by making the most of your multiple destinations without overdoing it!
