For a memorable honeymoon, all you need is love. And sunscreen. And a few other things…
Here’s the complete honeymoon packing list for couples, covering everything from absolute essentials to fun romantic extras.
If you’re planning a honeymoon in the U.S. with few or no pre-paid costs — staying at a relative’s nearby lake house, for instance — then you can probably skip travel insurance. For any other kind of trip, however, it’s a must. Why?
Travel insurance protects your travel investment. If you have to cancel your honeymoon at the last minute — due to a sudden illness, a natural disaster, or other reason beyond your control — you could lose all the money you spent. Many hotels, vacation rental companies, tour operators, airlines and cruise lines won’t give you a refund if you cancel too close to your departure date. Trip cancellation benefits can reimburse your pre-paid, non-refundable expenses, up to the maximum benefit in your plan, if you must cancel your trip due to a covered reason.
Travel insurance protects your health. Did you know that medical providers overseas typically don’t accept American health insurance plans? Instead, they require payment up front. Emergency medical evacuations can be even more expensive; the cost can reach six figures in some parts of the world. Emergency medical and dental benefits can cover costs for emergency medical care when traveling.
Travel insurance protects your honeymoon experience. A honeymoon is supposed to be romantic and relaxing… not aggravating and anxiety-inducing. Think of travel insurance as a life vest that helps you float through rough water. Missing bags? Delayed flight? Stolen wallet? Rental car fender bender? Travel insurance can help. When you’re not sure what to do, or need help in an emergency, contact 24-hour assistance by phone or via the Allianz TravelSmart app.
Here’s a tip: The best time to buy travel insurance is immediately after making your honeymoon travel arrangements. The earlier you buy insurance, the longer your coverage window. Not sure which plan to buy? OneTrip Prime is a popular choice for protecting international trips and special vacations (like honeymoons).
Whether your honeymoon is a three-night cruise or a two-week trek, it’ll be a trip you’ll always remember. So make it special! Sure, you can pay to have the resort dump some rose petals on your bed — or, you can plan ahead and pack a few things to make your honeymoon extra special. Ideas include:
Remember, your checked luggage doesn’t always show up when planned (that’s why travel insurance is so important). Pack all your honeymoon essentials in your carry-on.
Wherever you’re headed, aim to pack clothes and shoes that are both comfortable and chic. This means travel shoes that can dress up or down, and dresses that can be worn on the plane or to a five-star restaurant. If you want to travel light, limit yourself to four or five tops and two to three bottoms (pants/shorts/skirts), then pack individual packets of laundry detergent so you can wash your dirty clothes.
No one wants a honeymoon marred by sickness or sunburn, but these things happen. Prepare for every eventuality by packing first-aid and safety gear.
Our last tip for your honeymoon packing checklist? Leave your work, financial and relationship stresses at home. You only get to enjoy one honeymoon together, so don’t let conflict spoil your vacation. Enjoy every moment!
