There has never been a better time to jet off on a romantic adventure. Travelbag – specialists in tailor made travel to destinations worldwide, launched its honeymoon gift list service in October.
The new initiative gives friends and families of engaged couples the chance to easily and seamlessly help honeymoon dreams come true. After the question is popped and the champagne is poured, couples are invited to open a free Travelbag honeymoon gift list where they will be assigned their own personal Honeymoon Travel Expert who will advise on the best honeymoon offers and destinations, book all travel including flights, transfers, accommodation and tours, and manage the entire gift list service. The honeymoon gift list service is not an automated system as Travelbag prides itself on personalised expertise and high quality service.
Blushing brides-to-be and their fiancés can choose from a wide selection of the world’s most romantic hotels and resorts, from the exotic privately-owned Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia to the urban haven of New York’s Knickerbocker Hotel. Or, buck the trend and jet off on a mini-moon or even a family-moon – it’s the real-life Honey(moon), I brought the kids! Travelbag also offers a number of multi-centre trips, world class safari, cruise and tour experiences. Lovebirds can snorkel Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, island-hop the Caribbean by luxury cruise, or enjoy fruity sundowners after an exhilarating game drive in South Africa
“Hot destinations for 2018 honeymoons will be Mauritius, New York, and the Caribbean. We are also seeing a huge rise in honeymoon bookings that combine relaxing beach time with one-of-a-kind cultural or wildlife experiences. South Africa will be a top honeymoon contender in 2018 because of its winning combination of chic Cape Town, romantic wine country and matchless safari options.” – Mia Harrison, Honeymoon Travel Expert for Travelbag
In addition to planning and booking the couple’s customised honeymoon, the Travel Expert will be the point of contact for any friends and family gifting into the honeymoon gift list, alieving unnecessary stress for the couple before the wedding bells ring. Travelbag ensures every last detail and special touches are taken care of. The Honeymoon Travel Expert can advise on which hotels and resorts offer special promotions and gifts for newlyweds such as complimentary spa treatments and honeymoon bubbly. Travelbag packages also have the option for couples to upgrade their room or flights for a first-class honeymoon experience.
After opening the honeymoon gift list and paying a £100 deposit which will go towards the dream honeymoon, newlyweds will receive 100 complimentary printed cards to include in their wedding invitations explaining how guests can contribute to the honeymoon gift service. All they need to do is contact the dedicated Honeymoon Travel Expert who will take payment and then direct guests to an online form where they can leave a personalised wedding message.
