With a potentially expensive and stressful wedding to plan, the honeymoon should provide a nice relaxing calm after the storm. To ensure it is just that, this article provides some great hints and honeymoon tips to help you on your way!
OK, so we understand that you've probably already got a lot on your plate at the moment and have had more tips and ideas thrown at you than you can possibly take, but making room for just a few more could well be worth it. From travel insurance to excursion advice we highlight below the essential honeymoon tips no newlywed should be without...
Honeymoon Tips #1
Ensure You Have Adequate Travel Insurance in Place
Valid travel insurance is a must, regardless of whether you are hiring a cottage in the Lakes or white-water rafting in New Zealand. Annual passes may be more expensive initially but if you are planning on travelling again within 12 months they could well save you in the long run.
Make sure that the terms and conditions of the insurance are suitable enough to cover you in any eventuality for where you’re going and what you’re doing.

Check out the Latest Travel Advice
It is unlikely to happen (unless you plan to go to a sunspot in somewhere in a war-torn region of the world!), but from time to time the Foreign Office will issue warnings about travelling to certain locations.
Check their website out just before you go and follow any advice given. There is little possibility that they will advise against travel completely, but they may warn you about visiting certain towns and villages – this info can be extremely important and should always be adhered to for your own good.
Honeymoon Tips #3
Think About Your Medical Needs
As soon as possible check with your doctor whether you will need to take any special medication or, more likely, undergo a vaccination or two to ensure your health remains in tact whilst you’re abroad.
Honeymoon Tips #4
Confirm Your Flight Details
