Honeymoon Travel Planning FAQs

What to Expect Beginning to End

When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. That’s how Eric Hrubant, Esther Klijn, Melissa Chaquea and YinYin Petersen, honeymoon travel planners, feel at CIRE Travel. When they’re not arranging travel for newlyweds, they’re planning their own trips. Their job isn’t sitting behind a desk, making reservations. Their work involves networking with partners—airlines, hotels, and more—experiencing services and property amenities first-hand. They have the highest expectations and are constantly taking mental notes on places and activities for clients. It’s an occupational hazard to approach their own vacations this way.

You interviewed how many caterers? Visited how many reception venues? Tasted how many flavors of wedding cake? Of course, you’re not going to trust planning your honeymoon to anyone without asking questions first. Here are a few questions couples ask most frequently…

Exactly what types of honeymoons does CIRE Travel plan?
To have our team of expert travel advisors arrange a honeymoon to a mainstream all-inclusive Caribbean resort, frankly would be a waste of their skills, talent and connections. Using their A-list connections and personal knowledge of so many global destinations, Eric, Esther, Melissa and YinYin's specialty is planning luxury honeymoons and acting as your personal go-to before and during your trip until the time you return home.

How involved or hands off can we be with the honeymoon planning?
This is your honeymoon and your personal preference. Some couples want to be involved in planning every little detail. Others provide a country or region or activity and let our team take it from there. And, still others give very little direction and let them run with it. We’ve found that over time, every call and each email from Eric, Esther, Melissa or YinYin builds trust to the point that even very hands-on couples eventually feel confident enough to let them handle things while they focus on their wedding.

What is the first step and what if we don’t know where we want to honeymoon?
The first step is easy. Just reach out. Fill out the form at the bottom of the page and Eric, Esther, Melissa or YinYin will contact you to schedule a “get to know you” call or meeting. You are going to love this step. Promise! During this time, we’ll ask questions you may have never considered. And it’s because of this personal touch that your honeymoon will be even better than you ever dreamed.

How do you create our honeymoon itinerary?
Based on what Eric, Esther, Melissa or YinYin learn during your initial discussions and reading between the lines, they work on a draft honeymoon itinerary. They present the options and revise or begin booking based on your feedback.

Do you handle everything to do with our honeymoon down to the smallest detail?
Absolutely, even if you cannot live without lavender sheets on the bed. With Eric, Esther, Melissa and YinYin's knowledge of the best places in the world to do whatever your heart desires, their industry A-list connections and the powerful reach of First in Service Travel, they handle every detail, including:

  • Complimentary introductory meeting
  • Airline reservations
  • Accommodations
  • Ground transportation
  • Activities and special events
  • Travel documentation: Our in-house visa expeditor can help coordinate requirements for traveling abroad

What if we run into a problem or have questions while traveling during our honeymoon?
Our expert team will micromanage every detail of your honeymoon itinerary. They’ve ensured travelers arrive at their destinations when volcano eruptions have halted all air traffic, when snowstorms shut down airports and when people have overslept. Just one call to CIRE, and it’s handled. That’s all you want to hear.

CIRE Travel runs reports for all travelers in the event of advance or immediate warnings of world events or weather that could force travel delays or cancellations. In the event of a possible or impending delay, the CIRE team jumps into a proactive contingency mode rerouting and rescheduling as necessary, so you’re never left waiting in line or on hold.

Eric, Esther, Melissa, YinYin and our entire team of CIRE Travel agents are not 9-to-5 employees. They are career agents who love what they do and genuinely care about your honeymoon. Reach out to our team, any time, even at 3:00 am in case of an emergency.

"Eric is wonderful! He helped me organize a week-long conference in New Delhi and he managed each piece seamlessly—from the flights to the hotels to the ground transportation. He knew all about our various options within New Delhi and helped weigh in thoughtfully as we finalized our contracts with each vendor. He was a genuine pleasure to work along every step of the process!”

–Preeti B, Fashion – New York

"Eric is so great that he takes care of problems before you even know there is a problem, especially with weather delays and other travel snafus. I cannot say enough good things about Eric and his team and highly recommend them for both personal travel and corporate travel planning needs!” 

– Benjamin, Media – New York

"Eric is truly the best travel planner. He goes above and beyond every time, without fault. He seizes absolutely every opportunity to improve and enhance your travel experience. As a client, I know I benefit each trip from the relationships he has established, and the credibility and outstanding reputation he has earned in the industry. His disposition, ease, and professionalism qualitatively set him apart. Regardless of the request, the urgency, the challenge, he handles each issue and transaction with a calm and efficient attitude. Above all, he is just a great person and simply such a pleasure to work with. I have and will continue to recommend Eric, without hesitation and unconditionally, to anyone who needs a corporate travel agent. And if you think you don’t need one, after working with Eric for a couple of times, you’ll wonder how you lived without him.”

"We got a solicitation voicemail yesterday from some corporate travel agency down the street, and I made a point of calling them back just to tell them that we were so happy with our travel guru, CIRE Travel. We didn’t need to hear about their corporate travel planning services because we were not looking to change. Shortest solicitation call of my life.”

– Emilian P, Cyber Security – Washington, DC

"I was spending countless hours on travel booking and airline websites. What was taking me a ridiculous amount of time to do, CIRE Travel handled in minutes. And with a trip involving three airlines and four airports, I’m relieved knowing that if something goes wrong, I just call CIRE.”
