4. Budget Planning is VV Impt! 

Ah, the most important factor when picking your honeymoon destination is the budget. Discuss with your other half of the budget and pick a destination that fits your desired budget! The task of finalizing your honeymoon destination becomes way easier when you have a fair idea of how much can you splurge on your romantic getaway. So, set a fixed budget and consider only those destinations which can be explored within that budget. Considering the destinations that are not within your means only add to your stress. Whether your honeymoon budget is around INR 1 lakh or can spend not more than 2 Lakhs, there are ample international options that you can check out on our blog.

5. Consider The Duration - Minimoon VS Honeymoon 

Once your budget is set, the next thing to do is to set the duration of your honeymoon. Whether you want to go for a minimoon or a long honeymoon spread across weeks, pick the duration well.

6. Don't Solely be Wooed by Airfare and Hotel Packages

You sure might be getting a great deal for your airfare and hotel package but do not forget to double-check other costs like local restaurants, transportation and other activities. These 'other' costs may add up and be way more than what you expect.
