Once you’ve decided on the destination for your wedding or honeymoon, the real work begins. In reality, the options are endless when it comes to picking a place to lay your head. Thankfully, there are third-party booking web sites which do a lot of the leg work for you. Mr & Mrs Smith is one such example. It’s a hotel website, booking service and travel club, which not only helps you narrow down your options, but gives you added bonuses and perks. The site has been around since 2003, and has a collection of more than 950 stylish boutique hotels around the world.
If you book your honeymoon or destination wedding stay through Mr and Mrs Smith, you’ll automatically get perks such as free extras at check-in, money back with every stay, exclusive hotel offers and 24-hour telephone support from the site’s travel planners. Also, especially for honeymooners, Mr and Mrs Smith is now offering their “Just Married Pass.” The pass is designed to streamline your honeymoon planning experience and can be purchased for $250 in conjunction with your hotel booking.
If you purchase the “Just Married Pass,” the Mr and Mrs Smith travel planning team will handle all your booking details; including hotels, flights, transfers, restaurants and activities. The pass also offers:
- Automatic Room Upgrades: In all Smith hotels and subject to availability
- Exclusive Gifts: Perks and gifts upon check-in at Smith hotels such as a bottle of Champagne or a private picnic
- Bespoke Travel Planning: A personal honeymoon concierge will help you create a unique itinerary and make destination suggestions. They then book everything for you.
- 24-Hour Support: Available both before and during your trip to help attend to your needs
- $250 USD Travel Credit: A credit toward your honeymoon stay of seven nights or longer at the 900+ hotels in the collection
- Money for Future Trips: Five percent of the honeymoon stay will be applied toward a first anniversary stay at any Mr & Mrs Smith hotel
If you’re planning on booking seven or more nights for your honeymoon through Mr and Mrs Smith, then the “Just Married Pass” will pay for itself via the $250 travel credit. To get an idea of what you could expect by booking your honeymoon through the site, we had the company come up with a mock-honeymoon suggestion.
The experts at Mr and Mrs Smith selected Marbella, Spain as their example honeymoon destination. The historic city boasts 24 beaches, an active nightlife, casinos and palm-tree lined streets filled with shopping opportunities. As for the Mr and Mrs Smith property, Marbella plays host to the Finca Cortesin hotel. This whitewashed retreat is near Estepona and Costa del Sol – home to one of Spain’s best golf courses. Spend your honeymoon next to the pool overlooking the sea and admiring the Moorish and Castilian architecture.
