How to save money on your honeymoon

Everyone knows honeymoons are costly affairs – they are supposed to be the best holiday of your life after all.

However, one website suggests that there are some ways in which newlyweds can cut the cost while still enjoying a great break.

Firstly, recommends, do your research on destinations and travel out of high season where possible.

This can result in discounts worth hundreds of pounds, even though the weather may not be much different to peak times.

Secondly, brides-to-be could request frequent flyer miles instead of the usual toaster and plates.

Meanwhile, being patient is also another tip, since excursions are likely to be cheaper when booked at the destination rather than before you jet off.

Finally – flaunt your newlywed status! The website suggests that this could lead to upgrades in hotels and on planes, as well as free drinks and even meals in restaurants.

St Lucia was recently voted the best honeymoon location for 2008 as part of the World Travel Awards.

Debbie Melchor of the St Lucia Tourist Board said she was delighted to have won the accolade, which marks the eighth year in a row that it has gone to the island.
