What to Consider When Choosing Seychelles Honeymoon Packages
With an abundance of Seychelles honeymoon packages to be found out there, choosing one that is best suited to your budget and specific needs is not always the easiest task in the world. Some may seem to tick all of your boxes at first glance, but a closer look reveals hidden costs or exclusions that put you right back to the drawing board without getting any further in making your honeymoon plans.
It goes without saying that this beautiful island destination is synonymous with romance. For honeymoons, it brings to mind warm days lazing on white sandy beaches, taking a dip in clear azure waters, trying delicious island meals together as a couple, sipping brightly coloured cocktails watching the sunset and relishing balmy evenings in paradise. Just how close you get to actual paradise depends entirely on the type of Seychelles honeymoon package you choose.
Everything You Should Know About Seychelles Honeymoon Packages
Some things to consider that will help you fine-tune your island honeymoon plans to perfection include the following:
· Try and get as close to all-inclusive as possible. At the very least, the package should include accommodation, breakfasts and selected activities. Preferably, flights, other meals and transfers to and from airport and hotels should also be included. This can help bring down costs significantly, so the more that is included, the better. Also the more you can pay ahead of your trip, the less you need to worry about when you are in paradise.
· Consider the time of year you will be travelling. Some packages are cheaper during certain times of year, with discounts during off-peak periods. From a practical point of view besides costs, it is also a good idea to know when you will be honeymooning. In Seychelles, the rainy season runs in summer, with monsoons and storms occurring especially from December to March. Prices are usually reduced during the less attractive weather periods, but know that as with any tropical destination, rain will very seldom fall for days on end. The weather changes quickly.
· Always read the fine print. This sounds a bit obvious, but in all of the excitement of making honeymoon plans, it is easy to miss those sneaky exclusions, hidden costs and other information not made abundantly clear. Be 101% sure that you know exactly what the package entails – costs, inclusions, exclusions, terms, deposits and any other detail… no matter how small it may seem.
Taking the time to plan and research your best options is a good way to get the best deals. Likewise, taking the time to choose a provider that gives you the best value for your money will help you further stretch out your honeymoon budget, giving you more funds for romantic activities such as spa trips, horse riding on the beach, snorkelling and wining and dining.
