FAQs

  1. What makes your service so unique?
  2. Honeymoon Hideaways is a specialist boutique service.  Sally has personally inspected and experienced every property in her portfolio and each one has been carefully chosen for its unique qualities and distinct features. Great care has been taken to build close and personal relationships with all the hotel proprietors and industry partners to ensure that you receive the best possible service and care. Due to these relationships and affiliations you will receive VIP treatment and often upgrades and special amenities are extended depending on availability.

  3. The hotel/resort I am interested in is not on your site, can you still help?
  4. Of course!!

    The website is a collection of properties that Sally has personally inspected and chosen to feature on her site. This does not mean these are the only properties she has seen, Sally has experienced many properties and there could be reasons as to why she chose not to feature in her collection.

    As you can appreciate that it is impossible to have experienced every property in the world, this is why we have local experts in each country that we work with in order to provide you with endless options and experiences. Due to our industry affiliations we can still offer exclusive rates and inclusions for many properties all over the world.

  5. Can you arrange travel to other honeymoon destinations that you do not feature?
  6. Absolutley!!

    Sally has travelled to many destinations that are not featured on this website so it is most likely that she has been to the destination you are interested in, with her knowledge and industry contacts she will ensure that you receive the ultimate honeymoon experience at the destination you desire.

  7. Can you book a place that you don’t recommend?
  8. Possibly, it would depend on the place and the circumstances.

  9. Can you book multiple destinations?
  10. Absolutely!!

    We are often booking multiple destinations, especially for those couples that have more time then average and want to combine a beach
    destination with a city or a “round the world” itinerary. Sally has experienced many properties all over the world which are not featured on
    the site as they may not be suitable for the average honeymoon experience.

  11. Why are there no prices on your website?
  12. As each itinerary is unique to you only and requires special attention & care we have chosen not to put prices on the website as they are constantly changing and it can cause confusion. We like to obtain the best possible price for you which can take time liaising with properties and industry contacts to ensure that we are getting you the best deal with the most inclusions.

    To get an idea of what you may be able to get for your budget, visit the “Experiences” page on the website and see what other couples experienced across different destinations ranging in budgets.

  13. What packages do you offer?
  14. We will tailor make a package to suit you and your budget. We will always advise you of any special or exclusive deals we have on offer.
    Packages will always include flights, taxes, accommodation, transfers and any extra inclusions or specific experiences we can arrange especially for you.

  15. I thought it would be less expensive to book my honeymoon myself?
  16. Not at all! In most cases we can obtain special deals and inclusions and normally save you money! Aside from the fact, that you are never on your own when booking through Honeymoon Hideaways, we know the destinations and properties and can save you time, isn’t planning a wedding stressful enough?

  17. We have another quote, can you match or beat the price?
  18. We will certainly make every effort to do so. The quote would need to be emailed through so we can ensure that we are comparing apples for apples.

  19. Do I need to plan ahead?
  20. If possible, 6-9 months ahead.  It can also depend on the time of year your travelling and where you are travelling to. If you are travelling in a peak time then booking ahead as far out as possible is recommended.

  21. What fees do you charge?

    Should you not proceed with us this fee is non-refundable

  23. How do we get started?
  24. Please phone or email your enquiry, once we receive this we can arrange a consultation over the phone. After the consultation, if you wish to proceed the planning fee will be charged and we will begin to work on your honeymoon options.

  25. When do I have to pay for the honeymoon?
  26. After you have accepted the honeymoon proposal, we will advise you when the deposits are due to secure the booking.
