Honeymoon Planning and Advice
We asked Lori Franco (a Certified travel expert) a few important Honeymoon planning questions and Here's what she had to say.
Name the top 4 Honeymoon destinations of 2016?
Lori Franco: Right now the top 4 Honeymoon destinations are Italy, Bora Bora, the French Riviera. We do a lot of St. Lucia in the Carribean and we even have a lot of African Safaris.
Travel Agency Vs. Booking online?
Lori Franco : The main thing with using a Travel Agency is that it doesn't cost you any extra than going online and doing it yourself. I've been in business for over 35 years, our office (Global Excellence Travel) has over 100 years of experience. You want to know it's not just a phone number you're going to call and it will be ringing and ringing. You know we'll be here and we'll be able to assist you. With the way the world is today, you really should speak with a Travel Specialist who knows the ins and outs of the places, where you should go and where you shouldn't go. You can obtain information online but it is not always the best way to go.
Tell us about the Zika Virus!
Lori Franco: We do have a lot of information on our website www.globalexcellencetravel.com and we have to keep up with the Zika Virus. We have people who are very concerned and we tell them they HAVE to be pre cautious. Wear the sunscreen, follow the cdc rules, the Zika Virus is actually already in this country so you just have to be ProActive.
What's the average cost of a Honeymoon?
Lori Franco : The average cost of a Honeymoon is between $4000-$6000. If you're looking for your own Jacuzzi and swimming pool it goes up. If you're looking for an outside cabin, balcony cabin or a suite that changes it, but normally we work with any budget from $3000 and up.
How far in advance should you book your Honeymoon?
Lori Franco: You should be looking to book your Honeymoon about a year in advance. Some people do it in 6 months, some do it in 3 weeks, but you should really book your Honeymoon at least a year out!
