Helpful Ways To Save Money On Food During Your Honeymoon
Don’t spend all of your money on food during your honeymoon. You’ll want to buy plenty of souvenirs to help you remember this fun time, so follow these helpful steps to avoid spending too much on your food.
1) Tell Everyone Your Newlyweds – It’s not often that you’ll get to work some special deals, so make sure you take advantage of being newlyweds by telling everyone to try to score some extra special deals. Make sure you tell the traveling agent or hotel reservationist because you should get complimentary extras, such as champagne waiting in the room or chocolate covered strawberries. If you’re going on your honeymoon in the off-season, the deals may be even better! There’s no harm in asking.
2) Book That Package – While you might not think you want to splurge for the honeymoon package, you’ll be glad you did! Consider all of the features in the packages and how much you’ll realistically spend. One big bonus of booking a package is not having to pay for meals or beverages, which can get expensive. Figure out exactly what’s included and not included in the packages and plan accordingly.
3) With Kitchen – To save money, book a room that has a kitchen or at least a kitchenette. Even if you don’t want to cook a whole meal, you can whip up a few breakfasts or quick lunches to save some money. Add some romantic, soft music and it’ll be just like you’re dining at a restaurant.
4) Venture Beyond The Perimeters – Sure it’s nice to not have to leave your amazing resort when on vacation, but get a better taste of the culture of the area you’re staying in and save a little money by dining away from the resort.
5) Customizable Picnicking – Stop by a local market or grocery store and buy ingredients to build your own sandwiches or salads for lunch. Gather all of your materials in a picnic basket and set up a romantic picnic for just the two of you.
6) Converse With Locals – When it comes to knowing the best food deals in town, locals are where it’s at. Start up a conversation with locals and ask them where they enjoy eating. If you are a little bashful and don’t feel comfortable talking to strangers on the streets, head into a local store or market and ask the employees there. You’ll be surprised how welcoming most strangers are to help out a newlywed couple.
