Frequently Asked Questions and Answer from Travel Planning Expert, Donna Salerno Travel:
How far in advance should we plan our honeymoon?
As soon as you know your wedding date!
If we have several destinations in mind, can you still help?
Absolutely! We consult with you to find the best place; for the most important trip in your lifetime!
Are you available to consult with us after normal business hours or week-ends?
What do you help with?
- Destination decisions
- Special tours for the two of you
- Accommodations & Meal Plans
- Flights, Transfers and Travel Insurance
What is the process for booking a honeymoon with you?
First we consult via telephone to answer any questions you may have. Discuss options/suggestions and communicate budget costs, travel documents required, dates, etc. Once we have the destination set, you fax/scan your completed form (listing legal names in writing, travel dates and mailing address for documents). After the research is done for your honeymoon, you will be emailed with day-by-day details for your trip, listing the package price with services provided such as round-trip air, accommodations, activities selected, travel insurance, etc. Should you need any changes we can accommodate.
When is the deposit due?
Once you have decided on your package a small deposit is required, all payments are done by credit card. Final payment is due 90 days prior to departure date. Once final payment is received; documents are express mailed to your preferred mailing address. You are telephoned when the documents arrive and again before you actually depart for your trip! Follow up after the trip is essential - we love to hear the glowing reports of your honeymoon stay!
Any travel outside of the USA does require a valid passport for all US Citizens.
Passports must be valid 6 months after your date of return. Some destinations do require additional paperwork, such as Visas - you will be instructed on this during your phone consultation.
