About this Episode

No matter where you are in the wedding planning process, the idea of also planning a honeymoon is exhausting. Of course, after the big day, you want nothing more than to celebrate with your partner. And thankfully, there are people who can help! Our guest, Irina Vishnevskaya works tirelessly to help plan the perfect honeymoon. Irina is part of Alle Travel, a spruced up version of a travel agency. They make it easier for newlyweds, and others, to plan the perfect getaway.

Big Takeaways
Don't skip the honeymoon because you're too worn out from planning the wedding. Even if you don't know exactly where you want to go, Alle Travel can work with you to put together the perfect trip. From day one, they take the stress of planning off your hands, and let you just enjoy the ride.

Use points from your credit cards to book a flight! Understand your budget so you know what will not stress you out. And since their agents are not paid on commission, you can rest easy knowing that you are going to get the biggest bang for your buck!

Quick Tips

  • Sign up for a card like Chase Sapphire right now, so you can begin saving points for the big trip.
  • Think about your budget, and what you like. No one should be miserable on their honeymoon because they spent more than they wanted.
  • Definitely have a honeymoon, everyone who didn’t have one wishes they did.
  • If you can, purchase international flights about six months out, that is the sweet spot for pricing.
  • Let your travel planner do the hard work, so all you have to do is show up.
  • Don’t let a monkey steal your birth control!
