Budget-Friendly Honeymoon Getaway


Yes – it IS still possible to enjoy a relaxing beach getaway for your honeymoon without breaking the bank! There are several ways to save money on a beach honeymoon right off the bat:

·      Time of year – Taking a spring or fall vacation in Myrtle Beach will save big bucks when it comes to your hotel. These seasons are particularly popular for weddings so the Honeymoon in Myrtle Beachtiming matches nicely with wedding season, though Myrtle Beach isn’t nearly as busy during this “shoulder season”. Hotel rates are quite a bit more affordable and you will be able to get a better bang for your buck.

·      Type of room – Can you live without the oceanfront view? If so, opt for an oceanview or interior room to save some extra cash. Also, if you want to save on your other expenses, opt for a unit with either an efficiency or a full kitchen. Though these sometimes cost a small amount more than units without these features, you will save more in the long run by cooking a few meals at home – assuming you don’t mind a little cooking on your vacay.

·      When you book – Like any other vacation, booking your getaway in advance can also save you a pretty penny in the long run. Room rates are dictated by simple economics and as rooms fill up the rates increase. Avoid these inevitable price increases by booking as far in advance as possible. Coral Beach actually has an Early Book Program that offers lower rates for advanced bookings.
