Ask The Honeymoon Angel #4: Can We Get a 'Newlywed' Upgrade?

Need a helping hand with that exciting honeymoon prep? Our honeymoon angel, wedding travel specialist Anita Gatley is at your service.

Q: Hi Anita. Can we get an upgrade, when telling hotel or flight companies that we are newlyweds? Megan, Hawera

Antia says: If you book with a Wedding Travel Specialist they will certainly tell every supplier that they are booking that you are on your honeymoon.

Many suppliers do advise that you take your marriage certificate in your hand luggage (a copy will suffice) in order to get special deals. I have come across a few properties that do offer ‘delayed honeymoon deals’, so that even if you are not recent newlyweds you can still get the freebies they offer such as champagne, chocolate, and room upgrades.

Remember, suppliers don’t have to give you these offers so always be polite and mention that you are celebrating your marriage – you will be wanting to shout it from the rooftops anyway!

Getting married is one of the happiest times of your life – enjoy it!

And if you can get some extra bonuses lucky you!
