Spend Your Loyalty Scheme 'Points'
From supermarkets to petrol stations, credit card companies to airlines, it seems that virtually every organisation runs some form of loyalty scheme these days.
Travel vouchers, flights, UK hotels, airport parking, travel insurance and activities are just some of the products on offer, so stop saving and start spending!
Speak to multiple travel agents, surf the internet, browse television travel channels, call hotels direct, look local and national newspapers. In short, don’t leave any stone unturned – there are bargains to be had if you are willing to put in the donkey work.
Use this technique for each element of your honeymoon from the flights to the insurance and you can save a small fortune. Additionally, don’t be afraid to play one off against another if you think there is an opportunity to save a few more quid.
Use your Wedding Gift List wisely
It needn’t be all pots and pans! Instead, try asking for foreign currency or ask guests to pay for a specific element of your honeymoon such as an excursion you are looking to go on.
Bargains can be had at the last minute, but as this is your honeymoon we're talking about you really shouldn’t take a gamble. Instead, book as early as possible – great discounts can be found if you book over a year in advance, sometimes these will even exceed any offers you can get by waiting till the last moment.
Keep an eye on the exchange rate
Exchange rates can vary wildly and change literally overnight so don’t be fooled into thinking that you need to wait till just before you leave before getting hold of your travellers cheques of foreign currency. If you can get nearer 2 dollars for your pound rather than a buck fifty, it can make one heck of a difference.
