Trippin' Out

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

They say the best things in life are free, and while this may be true to a certain extent, traveling comes with a major price tag. 

Planning a honeymoon is a fun and exciting process. The first step is establishing a budget, followed by selecting a destination, and then going on to explore the endless possibilities!

These days there are so many travel related websites, it’s hard to know where to look! Reading hotel and resort reviews from fellow travelers can be educational, however, you never know if the people writing them have the same expectations as you and your significant other.

We’ve comprised a list of what we’ve found to be the best websites for luxury accommodations at a discount. 

A wide variety of package deals around the world can be found, with savings of over 50% off on everything from private villas in the Costa Rican rainforest, to cozy, wine-infused nights in Napa Valley.

An affiliate of Luxury Link, this members-only site features flash sales on cream-of-the-crop accommodations.

A bevy of destinations are listed regularly in addition to the timed sales that vary by the day, here you’ll find some of the world’s finest hotels for living it up lavishly.

*Our fave bonus feature? The ‘What to Know’ and ‘What We Love’ sections, detailing ‘heads up’ sort of info that you typically wouldn’t find on other sites.

Exclusive pricing on top tier stays across the globe, and a select few private sales on hidden treasure resorts, this site grants its member’s access to the best of the best.

If gambling is your thing, then why not give this a go! The super low prices are offered on the ‘Hot Rates’; this is where you can filter by desired area and star rating but the name of the hotel will not appear until you’ve completed the payment process. It will indicate hotels comparable in caliber, but will not guarantee which one you’ll be booking with.

*WTB tip: Use this site for major cities and always choose 4 stars or higher (we recommend not taking your chances with more remote destinations with fewer major hotel chains).

The honeymoon is key for all newlyweds; whether it’s a weekend road trip to a rustic inn or a lavish resort on a tropical island, it’s a supremely wonderful way to spend some quality time celebrating each other.

Until next time,

A & S
