Your honeymoon is one of the most special holidays you will ever take and finding honeymoon special deals in SA can make your time together even sweeter. Before you write off a honeymoon as too expensive, remember that many places will offer discounted rates and special packages for people who are on honeymoon. You can also consider taking a honeymoon during off-season times as rates are often cheaper when it is not peak season so be sure to enquire if any specials apply during less busy times. Another bonus is more privacy for you and your new husband or wife.
When you are considering where you would like to spend your honeymoon, be sure to ask around for any honeymoon deals you can take advantage of. And luckily for us in South Africa, we don’t necessarily have to venture far to find the perfect honeymoon destination. With a range of attractions at our doorsteps, we don’t need to incur the unnecessary expense of going overseas to have a relaxing, exciting and romantic time.

Please note that many of these hotels do require that you produce a marriage certificate to claim a honeymoon special and there may be a time limit of about 6 months between the marriage date and the honeymoon booking. This means that you have to take the holiday within 6 months of getting married so that you can claim the special offers.
Even if you do not book a special honeymoon package, inform the place you are saying that you are on honeymoon and you may be provided with a little extra treatment and care to make your time together all the more magical and special.
