Have you been fantasizing about your DREAM honeymoon, where money is not an issue? Are you worried when the magical time comes and you are actually planning the most romantic getaway of your life, money will be a barrier to fulfilling your dream? Don’t. We at Honeyfund have been making dream honeymoons happen for more than ten years, and today we’ve got a SUPER creative idea to turn your dream into reality, without breaking the bank.
Budget-wise, the biggest travel costs are flights and accommodations. Saving money on flights is easy, our top hacks include being flexible with your dates, using airline miles or credit card points, or booking through a site like Hipmunk that scouts the best rates for you. Accommodations can be tougher to score a deal on, depending on where you’re going. Well, was tougher. Today, there is an AWESOME alternative to expensive resorts: HomeAway offers beautiful whole-home properties around the world at room rates that are well below what you would find at a hotel or resort. And, in exchange you get privacy, a fully functioning home with a kitchen, and room to lounge!
Imagine this: A two-week honeymoon in an elegant home in your dream locale. You have budget left over to hire a masseuse to come in, a chef for a private cooking lesson in YOUR kitchen, and you can even hire a housekeeper to come in daily and keep things clean and tidy. Pick a home with a view, or a pool, it’s up to YOU!
