Spectacular Honeymoon On A Budget: Part 2

Q Report Team
Updated on March 19, 2024
2 min read

Welcome back to the second half of our two-part article on how to plan an incredible and affordable honeymoon for you and your very special someone. Last time we talked about early booking and off-beat locations, honeymoon registries, and, of course, insuring the one piece of expensive jewellery you absolutely must bring along: the engagement ring. Today we're picking up where we left off.

6) Pack Everything You Need

One of the biggest expenses in any travel plan is having to buy things you forgot to pack. Don't just grab whatever you think is a good idea while you're all jittery from planning your wedding or exhausted from completing it. Instead, write yourself a packing list early and pack carefully with each item folded and accounted for. This way, you won't forget anything important unless you already forgot it months in advance.


7) Beware the risk of theft

It's important to remember that even well-patrolled tourist areas are not always completely safe. One of the best ways to make sure your credit cards and honeymoon budget are safe is to carry a decoy wallet in your back pocket while keeping your real valuables hidden in a money belt. If you have your previous old battered wallet and a few old credit cards, library cards, and spent gift cards, this is the perfect way to build an authentic-looking decoy wallet. Also, make sure all your valuables are insured. Assure yourself and your wonderful new spouse that your engagement ring can survive your honeymoon adventures with a specialised jewellery insurance.


8) Look out for Package Deals

Every couple wants something different from their honeymoon and what that is will determine some of the right budgeting maneuvers to make. If you're looking to relax together in the lap of luxury while everything else is completely taken care of, look for all-inclusive off-season resorts that offer fantastic package deals. Examine each deal before you choose to make sure what's included has all the things you're looking for in a perfect honeymoon.


9) Get Travel Passes to Hop Around

Alternatively, if you're looking for travel and adventure, eating in little local restaurants, exploring street markets, and staying in a sequence of little B&Bs- your best bet is to get a train or travel pass so that you can go where you want, when you want, without worrying about surprise charges for transportation. Depending on your destination, there may also be other package-passes to things like restaurants, certain malls, or specific venues you're planning to visit a few times.


10) Remember It's About the Memories

Finally, it's easy in wedding and honeymoon planning to get caught up in the idea of glamour and luxury, but remember that you don't have to go to recommended tourist zones and pay premium prices for a beautiful and unforgettable honeymoon. Remember that it's about the memories you make and the time you share together, not how much you spend on each special adventure. Look for breathtaking experiences that don't see the same kind of tourist traffic that will offer you a wonderful and far more private honeymoon adventure.



Planning a perfect honeymoon with -and for- your soon-to-be spouse is all about knowing how to get what you want without breaking the bank. There's no end to how to make your honeymoon affordable and safe. Just know that we’re here to protect the things you love so that you won’t have to worry about your expensive watch or brand new engagement ring wherever you choose to go.
