The Honeymoon Handbook Guide to your Romantic Getaway

Getting married is the best excuse to take the romantic getaway you and your partner have always dreamed about.

Newlyweds Tony and Maureen Wheeler started the company after embarking on their own honeymoon in 1972, in what turned into the trip of a lifetime across Europe, Asia and Australia.

Honeymoons A to Z

Introducing Lonely Planet’s first guide exclusively for honeymoons, The Honeymoon Handbook features over 25 of the most exciting locations for couples – from Andalusia to Zambia. It starts with a quiz to determine what kind of trip to take based on what you two love the most. Whether it’s backpacking in Borneo, touring Tuscany or cruising around Cuba, the handbook is there.

Beyond the destination sections, The Honeymoon Handbook also offers safari-, luxury-, island- and family-themed getaway ideas. In addition, it even has how-to’s on so-called ‘minimoons’ and getting married abroad. Also, the handbook includes budget breakdowns and alternative destinations, and an LGBT-friendly indicator for same-sex couples, rating each location from 1 to 5.
