2. Reservations Galore

You want to be prepared for this trip before it even begins. Book all stays, transport options, airport transfers, sightseeing options, etc. Look up dining options and see whether you require prior reservations for the same. You want your honeymoon to be blissed out, and relaxing. You don't want to spend your time with your spouse scrambling to find transport or reservations. Don't leave anything to chance.

  • Book stay options (hotels, homestays, resorts etc)
  • Book transport to and fro airport/train station etc.
  • Book transport within the destination for daily use
  • Make dining reservations
  • Look for couples activities offered in the area and make reservations

3. Documents

If travelling internationally, check for visa requirements much ahead of the travel date. For most international travel, your passport needs to be valid for a minimum of six months: keep that in mind in case you have to renew your passport. Though we are in a digital age, it never hurts to have physical copies of your travel iternaries and documents in case of any emergency. It is best to be prepared.

  • Check passport validity
  • Apply for Visa (if required)
  • Make copies of all documents in case of emergency

4. Check COVID-19 Restrictions

The pandemic might seem like a distant dream, but many countries still have restrictions in place for international travellers. Look for these, and make arrangements accordingly. You don't want your trip interrupted by mandatory quarantines or specific vaccine requirements, make sure your information is accurate and up-to-date!

  • Check for entry requirements
  • Print vaccine certificate in case of emergency
  • Arrange for RT-PCR/Rapid tests as required

5. Timeline for Trip

No matter the duration of your trip, have a plan in place for your entire honeymoon. Many resorts offer couple activities like painting, sculpture, spa days etc. Do your research and chalk out a rough iternary. Sitting by the pool or beach sipping cocktails also counts as an activity! Remember, it is a trip for you to connect and bond with your partner - don't make it a strict timetable but have options in case the mood strikes.

  • Plan a rough iternary
  • Plan to see some new sights, and/or do an activity every day
  • Remember to sit back and chill!
