Planning a honeymoon can be just as exciting (if not more) as the wedding itself. Let's be real, honeymoons are great, you only have to worry about the two of you, there aren't any outside opinions and you get to enjoy your first holiday as a married couple doing whatever you want!
There can however be a lot of pressure to plan the perfect honeymoon, after all you want it to be equally as memorable and incredible as the wedding.
Now days a lot of couples are saving money on the wedding and spending it on their honeymoon. This means they can splurge on the things they otherwise wouldn't of been able to before and can visit places that would of stayed on their bucket list.
Not sure where to go? Need some inspiration? We've put together a list of the ultimate honeymoon destinations to help inspire you and get you excited for your next big adventure.
Of course the 'City of Love' is going to be on our list. Whether its the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower, the romantic cobble stone streets or the fact that it's Paris, this is definitely one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations there is.

Thank you to the beautiful Tammy who recently booked my holiday. She made everything so easy. I highly recommend booking through her.
We couldn’t be happier with Redcliffe Travel. Their wonderful agent, Tammy, recently booked our flights to Zimbabwe. Her attention to detail was fantastic! Her communication was outstanding, keeping us updated and even checking in after our return to ensure our travel went smoothly. We highly recommend Tammy and the team at Redcliffe Travel.
We have just returned from our second holiday organised and booked through Tammy. It's so comforting to deal with such a professional and caring staff member. Thanks heaps Tammy outstanding service once again
The Australia part of our trip has sadly finished. In a word, it has been amazing! We owe a lot to our travel agent Tammy Aitchison, who asked the right questions, gave us insightful guidance when planning this trip and basically ironed out the wrinkles we would have undoubtedly experienced had it not been for her assistance. You will discover that her professionalism and attention to detail is world class and her customer service is second to none.
We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.
As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Tammy and Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. Its good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!
The service provided is always helpful and comprehensive. The booking documentation is always delivered on time to allow checking and to make changes if necessary.
I have used Tammy at Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found her to be very professional and efficient. She has also been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using her in the future.
