- Wedding: February 2009
So the economy is tanking pretty hard and the cost of weddings is not tanking with it, so I am noticing that more and more people are cutting their honeymoon (either location, length, or not going at all!).
Here are some ideas for the time being are relativiely cheap to travel too:
- Monterey Bay California — Flights are relatively cheap to California right now and you can find some amazing places to stay right on the beach for a great deal. Like Clement Monterey (a four star hotel) for $179/night right on the ocean. Its a beautiful location with amazing weather.
- Hawaii — You may have to bargain hunt for flights (ie travel on weekdays, but cheap flights can be found). Resorts in Hawaii are also running cheap, for example Poipu Beach Resorts (a bed and breakfast) for $145/night or Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort & Spa for $133/night.
- South Africa — Flights are a bit more expensive expect to pay $1200 r/t per person, but you can stay at a 3-star hotel Protea Hotel Fire and Ice for $110/night.
- Cruise Europe — Royal Carribbean has a 4 night cruise in Europe for $350 and yes that is all inclusive (except for airfare to Barcelona).
The key is people are not traveling right now so even places you though you could not afford are slashing prices just to get the income to their locale.
