NEW YORK, March 10, 2014

NEW YORK, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/, the world's leading
luxury travel site that provides expert knowledge and exclusive deals on some
of the finest travel experiences, today released a bevy of honeymoon facts
based on hotel room bookings made through the site's Personal Travel Planning
service. The service allows travelers to consult with an expert, establish a
customized travel plan, and book a trip.

Where Honeymooners Are Going
The five most popular international honeymoon destinations are the Caribbean,
Italy, French Polynesia, Thailand, and China. These locales represent almost
40% of all international honeymoon bookings. For couples who choose to stick
closer to home, more than half go to Hawaii.

How Much They're Spending
On average, couples spend $4,183 on honeymoon accommodations. When it comes to
the priciest honeymoons, however, the numbers are far higher—reaching $11,905
domestically and $23,000 internationally.

All About Planning
The most popular months to honeymoon are April through July. On average,
couples book their accommodations 2.5 months in advance, but that can vary
greatly, according to Travel Operations Coordinator Brad Thomas: "The record
for most in-advance booking was 13 months, but we've also had a couple who
booked their stay the day their honeymoon started."
