Planning a honeymoon can involve a lot of individual steps even before you start comparing accommodation and amenities. Since this getaway is usually a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, it makes sense that you’d want to choose the perfect venue and setting.

Social media can be a great tool for helping you find the world’s most interesting travel destinations and places you might not have discovered otherwise.

With that said, here are 5 ways you can use sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to broaden your horizons when searching for an ideal honeymoon hotel.

1. Join Travel Groups

You can find great tips in travel groups, such as this experience shared by a couple who recently married and financed their honeymoon through a loan. They used LoanPigUSA, a leading provider of short-term loans, for their wedding.

The couple needed a quick amount of cash to be used as a deposit for a vendor, as weddings are expensive and there are times during the planning stages when cash flow is at a minimum.

The went on to say that they borrowed money once again for the honeymoon because finances were running low leading up to that happy day, which they invariably will. Having paid the previous loan in full and on time, they were in good standing with the lender they found on that website.

2. Follow Travel Blogs and Magazines

Liking and following the pages of major travel blogs and magazines will not only expose you to deals offered through their posts, but it will also make it easier for travel companies to target you in their ad campaigns, which means you’ll be shown more offers for honeymoon hotels.

3. Use the Search Bar

Simply searching for a term like “honeymoon hotel + [location name]” in the search bar of your favorite social site could lead you directly to the destination of your dreams. In YouTube, the world’s second-largest social site, you can also view videos of places you are interested in traveling to.

4. Follow Celebrities Who Like to Travel

If you’re not in a rush and your honeymoon is several months away, why not occasionally check out the travel experiences of your favorite celebrities to see if they can give you any ideas. Of course, you might not be able to afford the exact suite that they’re live streaming from, but simply taking note of the city or hotel they’re staying in can point you in the right direction.

Celebrities have professional travel agents working for them full-time to find the coolest travel destinations, so you might as well follow in their footsteps.

5. Ask Your Network for Opinions

Sometimes simply posting a status update or thread asking for the opinions of your friends and family can go a long way, especially if you’ve amassed a decent amount of friends or followers.

Don’t Rush into a Decision

Regret isn’t a word that you want to come to mind when you remember your honeymoon years from now. Thus, it’s best to consider as many options as possible so that you can make a more informed choice that you’ll be happy with.

Fortunately, by heeding the tips above and leveraging the power of social media, you should be able to create a list of prospective destinations to choose from.
