Many of My Vacation Lady’s honeymoon clients are people that may not have used travel agents in the past. While some may be very well traveled, some of the travel plans might have been handled by parents or friends or they might have been trips through work or school. Not every honeymoon couple feels that they need a travel agent to plan their honeymoon but still more than half of the honeymooners (according to the Knot) will still use a travel agent to plan this special vacation.
What makes planning a honeymoon different than a regular vacation and why should you use a honeymoon specialist?
- According to a 2013 Travel Trends Survey of travel agents taken by Allianz Travel Insurance, the average honeymoon will cost more than a regular vacation— nearly 3 x more.
- According to the survey, about 2/3 of the honeymooners tracked spent up to $5,000 on their honeymoon. Another 23% spent up to $10,000.
- According to My Vacation Lady’s 2013 honeymooners, the average honeymoon was about $7000, including 3 honeymoons that were over $20,000 and another 7 that were betwen $10,000 and $20,000.
What does this mean?
No you don’t need to spend $10,000 or $20,000 on a honeymoon to use the services of a travel agent but for those honeymooners looking for something exotic and unique and out of the ordinary, using a travel professional can save them time and stress.
“Honeymoons have always been a significant investment for couples, both financially and emotionally,” said Alan Josephs, chief marketing officer at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “This isn’t just any trip – it’s supposed to be a perfect trip.”
Keep in mind that you are working (some are working multiple jobs or going to school as well) plus you are planning a wedding.
