Unusual honeymoon destinations ‘easier to access’

Honeymooning couples have become more inclined to book flights to unusual destinations because they have become easier to access

Honeymooning couples have become more inclined to book flights to unusual destinations because they have become easier to access.

This is according to hitched.co.uk, which believes that honeymoons are no longer a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Darren Noel, the website’s commercial director, explained that there has been a "subtle move" away from romantic destinations, with people instead going on a holiday they actually want.

"More and more places are accessible like Mauritius, Seychelles and the Caribbean," he said.

"You might see different destinations coming in but that is more to do with the ease of getting to them rather than a want to go to weird destinations."

Mr Noel went on to say that other recently married couples are booking ‘mini-moons’ and saving up for a honeymoon later on.

A recent poll from Hotels.com revealed that 77 percent of couples are planning on taking a honeymoon lasting less than two weeks.

Some 30 percent of these are planning on going away for just one week or under, while a further 57 percent intend to honeymoon immediately after their wedding.
