A grand honeymoon is every couple’s dream, and why not? After all, life is to be lived once, so it’s best to make the most of it. If you are one of those, who don’t want to head to the usual honeymoon locations such as a Bali or Pattaya or Switzerland, fret not, there are hundreds of offbeat destinations, to make your ‘us’ moments even more wonderful.
The thing about offbeat places for a honeymoon is generally the cost factor. Since many travel agencies may themselves be not aware of such places, it often gets hard to plan a honeymoon with costs restraints. Since the honeymoon is, of course, an important part of being married, costs and money should not hamper your plans.
However, if you are short of cash after bearing your wedding expenses, you can always opt for a travel loan. A travel loan is a personal loan that is given for the purpose of travel. All you need to do is apply for personal loan, and you can use it for any destination of your choice. There is no restriction on the usage of the loan once it’s disbursed. Reputed financial institutions such as Tata Capital give loan for travel at as less as 11.25 per cent interest rate. You can pay off this personal loan in easy EMIs over one to six years.
At Tata Capital, you can apply for a personal loan for a minimum of Rs 75,000 and a maximum of Rs 25 lakhs. You can decide upon the amount of travel loan you will take after deciding upon the destination where you want to head out for your honeymoon. Let’s look at three non-clichéd places that will be most suitable for you to spend your special days:
Bora Bora, French Polynesia:
Bora Bora is a heaven on earth, thanks to its breath-taking views. The place is known for its exotic locations. There are overwater bungalows that are secluded and intimate and will give you all the privacy that you need. Right from the flight itself, you will get a beautiful aerial view of the archipelago. The best time to visit Bora Bora is June to October. If you have taken a loan for travel, then you shouldn’t worry much, and explore the area as much as you can. Some of the biggest attractions here include the extinct volcano of Mt Otemanu, water sports at Matira Beach, Musee De La Marine museum of boats, and Alain Gerbault Memorial at Vaitape. A little bit of sightseeing did nobody any harm.
Zakynthos or Zante is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. It is a verdant island endowed with fertile valleys and a temperate climate. Zakynthos is everything that dreams are made up of. You can do a lot of things here, right from having some romantic time at the Navagio Shipwreck Beach to walking on the hanging bridge to the island. Popular beaches such as Agios Nikolaos, Alykanas and Tsilivi offer swimming and water sports. The waters are clear blue and soothing to the eyes. The atmosphere is quaint, just what you want on your honeymoon. Of course, if you want more action, you can visit the Blue Caves, do some scuba-diving at Laganas, kayaking, snorkelling, and base-jumping. In one word, Zakynthos is a lot of fun.
Don’t let the name fool you. The sunlit green meadows and the azure waters of Dingle are full of rare and amazing views that you will not find anywhere else on the earth. Watching the sunset as a newly-married couple is something you don’t want to miss when in Dingle. The sunset views over the Dunquin Bay are gorgeous and romantic. On your way, you will find waterfalls by the roadside, such as the one at the Connor Pass. Attractions, such as the abandoned Minard Castle, are a sight to watch. Hold hands and walk into the millennium-old Oratory church, explore the old cultural village of Great Blasket Island, Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium, or hike up to Mount Brandon. There is no dearth of things to do in Dingle, and when you are aided with a travel loan, you don’t have to worry about expenses at every step.
The best things in life are free. However, a good honeymoon, which is not, should not be skipped. By applying for a travel loan you can make this moment of your life truly fun and exotic and of course non-clichéd.
