WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA – Pleasant Holidays announced the release of its 2017-2018 Destination Weddings & Honeymoons guide for the romance travel market. Designed as a sales tool and valuable resource for agents assisting newly engaged couples, the 24-page brochure features 78 romantic hotels and resorts in Mexico, Hawaii, Caribbean, Tahiti and Fiji, Central America, Europe, the United States and Canada plus four cruise lines offering memorable voyages that span the globe.
“The Destination Weddings and Honeymoons travel market offers significant sales growth potential for agents who specialize and understand its many components,” says Jack E. Richards, President and CEO. “Destination weddings typically range from 25 – 30 guests with the wedding party celebration lasting four days; the bride and groom usually stay in destination for their honeymoon for an additional four to seven days. The party books flights, hotel accommodations, activities, food & beverage, the ceremony and more. That translates into healthy commission income for the travel agent. Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean remain the most popular choices for destination weddings, while Tahiti, Fiji and cruises are top picks for honeymoons. Pleasant Holidays is experiencing large growth in destination wedding travel and honeymoon bookings for 2016 and 2017.”
Pleasant Holidays’ new Destination Weddings & Honeymoons guide includes useful information to help couples identify and book the destination that’s right for their special occasion, including Must See/Must Do highlights and entry documentation required for each destination. For couples planning a destination wedding, the guide includes essential information on documentation required for legal destination wedding ceremonies; wedding package, customizable ceremony and venue options for each featured hotel; and destination options for same-sex weddings. In addition, honeymoon couples will find a list of special amenities offered just for them.
Both the printed and electronic versions of Pleasant Holidays’ 2017-2018 Destination Weddings & Honeymoons guide offer a customizable text box where travel agents can include their own contact information for the wedding couple. In addition, Pleasant Holidays’ Wedding Travel Desk offers a toll-free hotline with dedicated wedding travel specialists at 1-800-818-9080, flexible travel options, custom wedding packages, activities and experiences, a wide range of airline options and more in one convenient location.
