HAPPY HONEYMOONING 101

WANT TO FIND YOUR BLISS AND EMBARK ON THE HONEYMOON OF YOUR DREAMS? HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO MAKE THE MOST MEMORABLE VACATION OF YOUR LIFE SEAMLESS.

Consider a travel agency

“Our services don’t cost anything,” says Mark Bliss of Bliss Travel. “There’s no added cost. You can get the same price by calling yourself.”

BUT – what you do get when booking through a qualified agency is peace of mind, inside tips and advice you never knew you needed. Travel agents have access to information you don’t and won’t find on the internet. “We’re with you the whole way,” said Bliss, who also manages the Calumet Club in New Albany, a popular spot for weddings and events.

And if something goes wrong, “We’re only a phone call away,” he added.

Set a budget

Weddings can be expensive and honeymoons are often overlooked. But consider this: a wedding only lasts hours while a honeymoon lasts days. Consider them both before you plan your nuptials.

Hold off on the honeymoon

No one ever said you had to leave your wedding reception and head straight for the airport. Take your time and don’t feel pressured. But do take the time to go somewhere with your new spouse. You’ll reap the benefits for years to come.

When your name is Mark Bliss, being a travel agent and calling your business Bliss Travel just makes sense. On this episode of Off the Page with Extol, we talk with Mark and ask the question: What can a travel agent do for you that you cannot do on your own?  We also speak with a fabulous couple that backs up what he says.

Considering a destination wedding? Eager to book your honeymoon? Here’s why you should consider using a travel agent

Sure, it’s easy to jump online and book a trip, but there are plenty of reasons why you should consider using a travel agent, says Mark Bliss of Bliss Travel.

First and foremost, “Our services don’t cost anything,” he said. “There’s no added cost. You can get the same price by calling yourself.”

Another benefit, said Bliss, is “we’ve been selling travel in this community for 31 years. We’re with you the whole way.” Travel agents can offer insider tips and advice to guide your vacation decisions. They also have access to feedback from hundreds of clients and other agents and personal relationships with people at the companies they sell. You can’t find that type of insight online.

“We prepare you for anything and everything for your trip: what to pack, what not to pack … preventative things you might not think of, what to ask for,” said Bliss.

And, in the event something goes wrong, “We’re only a phone call away,” he added.

Instead of searching on the Internet for hours, days or even weeks – depending on the complexity of the travel plans – your agent does the research for you with your personal needs in mind. They do it for every component of the trip and at no cost to you.

Good travel agents also have access to benefits that can save you money – not to mention time – and provide you with a better experience than you can get on your own. That includes spa credits, free room upgrades, food and beverage credits, hard-to-get restaurant reservations, exclusive access to attractions and other added amenities.

Far too often, when it comes to wedding plans, the honeymoon is the last thing on the list, said Bliss, who also manages the Calumet Club in New Albany, a popular spot for weddings and events.

“The wedding is wonderful. It’s a very important day. The reception is important,” he said. “I might be a little biased, but the honeymoon is more important than anything. I just really think it is – and I’m in the business of weddings. … It kind of seals the deal in this important commitment for the rest of your lives. Theare’s nothing like the memories of a wonderful honeymoon.”
