travel safety tips

  1. Be aware of your surroundings. Keep an eye on your belongings at all times & use judgement when talking to strangers.
  2. If approached by someone on the street asking if you dropped something, such as a piece of jewelry, politely say no and keep walking. This is an ongoing scam in Europe and one that you need to be aware of.
  3. Don’t draw attention to yourself. Try to blend in & don’t wear flashy or expensive jewelry.
  4. Make copies of important documents, such as your passport. Bring a copy with you and keep it separate from your originals and leave a copy at home with a family member or friend.
  5. Be wary of public wi-fi. Don’t access your credit card providers website or banking information using public wi-fi as your information can be stolen by hackers.
  6. Safeguard your hotel room & belongings. Keep your door & windows locked and make it look like you are in your room while away by placing the do not disturb sign on your door. Keep your blinds and curtains closed.
  7. Enroll in the STEP program
  8. Check current travel advisories & warnings at the U.S. State Department
  9. Take a photo of your passport information page on your phone to have just in case it is lost or stolen.
  10. Know the telephone number and address of the closest U.S. Consulate or Embassy where you will be traveling.
  11. Lock up your valuables in your hotel room safe even when you are there.
  12. Purchase travel insurance.
  13. Email your itinerary to friends/family.
  14. Don’t share too much with strangers. Social media is a great thing but don’t post too many details of your next trip online as criminals can be monitoring these networks and don’t share your accommodation details with the local shop owner for example.
  15. Let your bank and credit card companies know where you will be traveling so they don’t lock you out from using your own cards.
  16. Hide emergency cash and don’t flash money around.
  17. Look closely at ATM machines before you use them. If there are any signs of tampering, find another machine to use.
  18. Don’t place anything in your back pockets.
  19. Pack a basic first aid kit.
  20. Trust your instincts! If it doesn’t feel right or safe, go with your gut and remove yourself from the location or situation.

Planning a honeymoon can be confusing with all of the options available. Are you finding it difficult to put together a travel package that is the right fit? Trying to piece together a package? Waiting on hold to speak to someone so you can ask questions? There is a much easier way to plan your honeymoon. Here are our top 3 honeymoon planning tips for you.

Plan ahead. The best time frame to start the planning process is 5-6 months before your honeymoon travel dates. Planning ahead will make sure that your romance travel specialist or honeymoon planner will be able to help you select the best destination and resort for you, and will get you the best price possible.

Set a realistic budget. Dreaming of an all inclusive 4 star resort in the Caribbean with an ocean view room on the beach? The average daily cost of a honeymoon at an all inclusive resort is $150 – $450 per person (price varies based on time of year, property amenities offered, and accommodations selected). This price does not include airfare, and the further you have to travel to your honeymoon destination the higher the airfare cost will be. You will get significant cost savings when booking a honeymoon package the includes your accommodations and airfare together; your honeymoon travel specialist will work with you to get the best price possible.

Be flexible. There are ways you can save and plan the honeymoon you have always dreamed about. It requires you to be flexible, and to be willing to give up some of your ‘must haves’. Make a list of the things that you want included in your honeymoon package (ocean front room, private plunge pool, candlelight dinner on the beach, 7 night stay, special activities, etc.), then consider which of those you would be willing to give up for your dream honeymoon. Your honeymoon travel specialist will provide you with the best options and make recommendations to help you.
