- Ask your travel agent for Honeymoon Packages, these usually offer the best destinations for honeymooners, not to mention discounts and freebies.

- Never, ever overbook day trips, you’re not just travelling, you’re with your new spouse, better save up some energy for the night’s fireworks.

- In addition to the above, don’t be afraid to request extra stuff, like a big bathtub, a double bed, or a romantic view.

- Don’t forget to bring your marriage certificate along with you, especially if the name of the bride is already under her husband’s name.

- Pack your camera and lots of film; you won’t want to miss anything. You might also want to pack a disposable underwater camera and extra batteries, these are absurdly pricey in tourist spots, and you wouldn’t want to overspend.

- Mention to anyone, especially in the café or in the tour boat, that you’re on your honeymoon, yes this may sound a bit embarrassing, but some restaurants give extras like free drinks or gifts for honeymooners. This also works for birthday celebrants.

- If you want an active honeymoon, research and prepare for water sports; the tropics are a great place, to learn them, always remember to consult hubby before you try one though.

- Stock up on sun protection. The higher the SPF the better, as you’ll probably be spending whole days out in the sun; you wouldn’t want to get skin cancer after just two weeks of marriage.

* When choosing a destination, think about what kind of honeymoon you would like. A relaxing time on the beach, adventure, sightseeing – or a bit of everything?

* Keep in mind the suntan lotion and skin care for trips to hot climates. Remember, you burn much faster when around water.

* Is the trip booked in your maiden name or married name? Does this match your passport?

* Always check the weather at your possible destination. Just because it is summer at home doesn’t mean it isn’t winter/monsoon season etc abroad!

* Check to see if you need a visa and leave enough time to get it if you do.

* Vaccinations are necessary for some destinations. Your GP (local doctor) should be able to advise you.

* Don’t forget to take a small first-aid kit – things like bite cream, aftersun lotion and aspirin (or equivalent).

* Certain places are very expensive when there are local events on, such as the Rio carnival. Budget accordingly.

* Before booking, check exactly what is included in the package! i.e. Excursions, meals, taxes, and extra activities.

* “When in Rome” – Research in advance and always honour local cultural considerations. For example, dress appropriately for the location.

* Travel insurance often doesn’t cover accidents when under the influence of alcohol and may not cover ‘dangerous’ activities, such as water sports or bungee jumping.

* It might be wise to keep your passport and travel documents in a zip-lock bag so they don’t get wet. Never leave your documents lying around – keep them in the hotel safe or hidden on your person.

* Bring along your BSAC/PADI licence if you have one and want to go diving.

* Buy a guide book, or get one from the library.

* Don’t keep all your money/credit cards/travellers’ cheques in one place.
