Flexibility with travelling
If you’re planning to travel by air, then consider searching for flights that can considerably alter prices, like the ones at odd timings, or with more stops. If you planning to travel by train, consider buying tickets that mix comfort with low costs.
Consider a shorter vacation
Just because it’s a honeymoon, doesn’t mean that it has to be for a month! It can drag and get boring. Try to make it short, sweet and memorable. Jayant Vaisakhe, a 28-year-old married man, is of the opinion that a short honeymoon is really special. “I had a short honeymoon myself, just five days! They were the best five days of my life! Making a honeymoon too long can get you to start worrying about your work and other things. A short vacation is the best way to go,” he said.
