Planning a honeymoon with multiple destinations? Go for that! What could be better than explore the whole globe with your soulmate? This post includes my 5 top tips for booking the flights for the multi destination trip of your dreams. With these tips I was able to save hundreds per person in flights with our honeymoon flights!
If you have an year to travel you can probably go around the globe and visit every continent. But what if you have less time?
During honeymoon it’s good to spend some time in the destinations too, not only in a plane, a taxi or another vehicles.
Our rule of thumb is 1 week per destination. I was at first thinking of 8 destinations in 4 weeks but to honest that’s not possible (except if the locations are within hour or two from each other).
5 Best Tips for Booking Flights to a Multi-Destination Honeymoon
1. Choose where you would like to go, then search for flights between those destinations
Usually it’s wiser to do a loop than fly back and forth. Also, oneway flights might sometimes be more expensive, so try plenty of routes before booking.
2. Try changing the order and the dates and see if there is faster and/or cheaper options available
Some flight routes might not be flied every day. Also, there might be better and faster options in higher peak season (but these are usually more expensive). On the other hand you might find out something surprising – for example I found out that flying one way Helsinki-Singapore costs same around 530€ that Zürich-Singapore-Zürich costs. Obviously we took the second option.
3. Use multiple sites to search for the best prices (if you need luggage make sure that it’s included!)
I used momondo.com, skyscanner.com and kilroy.fi. These sites are good because they are compering different companies and sites, usually if I try other sites I still find the best prices in some of these. Kilroy is good for Finnish students and young people because they sell prices with discounts.
4. Consider other traveling options too
Do some Googling about your destination. Sometimes flying isn’t the only or the best option. For example in the US renting a car might be a great idea that allows you to see and explore more. Also, in Japan there is fast and efficient train system which we’re going to use inside the country. No waiting at the airports, yeah!
5. When you have found good routes with valuable price book all the flights at once
When you start booking, book everything. Sometimes prices might vary (and flights can get more expensive), additionally some routes might get sold out. If you’re not in a hurry, you might wanna take a risk and see if the prices will get better. However, I wouldn’t recommend that if you already have a good price.
