Suit­cas­es are dusty, and pass­ports have been lying idle on the far shelf for too long. The whole world is miss­ing trav­el after covid restric­tions, so next sea­son we are expect­ing a tourism boom! How to plan your dream hon­ey­moon in this mad­ness Chan­fash­ion will tell in this arti­cle.

Decide on your desires

Before you book your first trip to Insta­gram beach­es in courage, drop the tem­plates and think about what exact­ly you are wait­ing for from your hon­ey­moon. Talk to your fiancé about what type of vaca­tion you pre­fer: a cul­tur­al pro­gram in a new Euro­pean city, a seal rest under the whis­per of the waves, or maybe an extreme ascent to a moun­tain peak? Twist dif­fer­ent options, remem­ber your inner­most trav­el dreams, because you will have time to go to an ordi­nary resort many more times, but a hon­ey­moon should be remem­bered for­ev­er 🙂

Make a list of options

Once you’ve dis­cussed your desires and dreams, it’s time to get spe­cif­ic and choose pos­si­ble des­ti­na­tions for your hon­ey­moon. Do not stop at the first option that comes to mind, because after a short dig­ging on the Inter­net, you can find some unusu­al direc­tion that you have not even thought about before.

Plan B

Yes, the pan­dem­ic is slow­ly reced­ing, but still it has not end­ed. And this means that at any moment the sit­u­a­tion can esca­late and the coun­try you have cho­sen will unex­pect­ed­ly close the bor­ders or change the rules of entry. In order not to be left with an emp­ty suit­case and burnt tick­ets on the eve of the long-await­ed hon­ey­moon, con­sid­er alter­na­tive options in advance.

Find out the details

Before you final­ly decide on a des­ti­na­tion for your hon­ey­moon in 2022, you need to study the details. The coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic has brought some con­fu­sion to the tourism indus­try and the rules for vis­it­ing coun­tries, so read care­ful­ly about the new require­ments. Check whether your vac­cines are list­ed in the select­ed coun­try, whether addi­tion­al doc­u­ments and cer­tifi­cates are need­ed, med­ical insur­ance, what are the nuances and pit­falls. Also, be pre­pared that these rules may change on the eve of the hon­ey­moon, so keep your fin­ger on the pulse.

Pay attention to insurance

When plan­ning your hon­ey­moon trip in 2022, pay spe­cial atten­tion to med­ical insur­ance. First­ly, some coun­tries have changed their health insur­ance require­ments for incom­ing tourists, so this point needs to be stud­ied sep­a­rate­ly. Sec­ond­ly, although you don’t want to think about the bad, you need to pre­pare for every­thing: it is pos­si­ble that one of you may get sick or get injured abroad. In such a sit­u­a­tion, you will def­i­nite­ly be glad that you did not save on med­ical insur­ance and can get qual­i­fied help with­out astro­nom­i­cal bills.

Book in advance. Very early!

Hop­ing for last-minute deals when plan­ning your hon­ey­moon is very risky, espe­cial­ly now, in a pan­dem­ic. The sit­u­a­tion is chang­ing every day, and the com­pe­ti­tion with oth­er tourists is too great. Let’s not add anoth­er stress fac­tor to the dif­fi­cult stage ofprepa­ra­tion and book every­thing in advance 🙂

Contact agencies for help

Thanks to the mass of infor­ma­tion on the Inter­net, the rec­om­men­da­tions of oth­er tourists and con­ve­nient book­ing ser­vices, plan­ning a vaca­tion on your own has become much eas­i­er. But in the sit­u­a­tion with a pan­dem­ic in 2022, we advise you not to take risks and seek help from spe­cial­ists, espe­cial­ly if you have cho­sen an unusu­al des­ti­na­tion for your hon­ey­moon. Trav­el agen­cies are aware of new require­ments for tourists in dif­fer­ent coun­tries and con­stant­ly mon­i­tor changes in the sit­u­a­tion, so they can relieve you of this respon­si­bil­i­ty and help col­lect the nec­es­sary doc­u­ments for depar­ture.

In addi­tion, a smart trav­el agent will help you pre­pare a back-up plan and offer inter­est­ing alter­na­tives if your cho­sen coun­try sud­den­ly clos­es bor­ders or changes rules on the eve of your hon­ey­moon. Such insur­ance before and dur­ing the hon­ey­moon is def­i­nite­ly worth the mon­ey in such an unsta­ble sit­u­a­tion.

Don’t plan too much

Check in all cul­tur­al places, see every mon­u­ment and muse­um, get a dozen excur­sions and, of course, run through the restau­rants of the city from the advice of opin­ion lead­ers! After a long break from trav­el­ing from a hon­ey­moon, you want to take every­thing and even a lit­tle more.

Stop 🙂 Rest should remain rest. You have gone through a dif­fi­cult and stress­ful­prepa­ra­tion, so you need to give your­self time for emo­tion­al relief. Enjoy leisure­ly walks, con­ver­sa­tions, and even wal­low­ing in your room, but espe­cial­ly with each oth­er.
