A honeymoon can be expensive, especially if you plan a trip out of the country. Now, with the euro and the U.S. dollar reaching parity for the first time in 20 years, new low-cost airlines help make it easier to go over the pond for the honeymoon of your dreams.


By saving money on flights, couples can keep their trip affordable, allowing them to put more money toward experiences and activities. Honeymooners should check out the low-cost Icelandic airline PLAY, which offers affordable flights to romantic destinations.


There is no better way to celebrate your love than heading to Paris for your honeymoon. Paris thrives in the fall, allowing travelers to spend some special one-on-one time with their significant other. Instead of spending a ton of money on the flight, spend it on romantic dinners at restaurants like Giraffe, boasting stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.


With PLAY’s pay-for-what-you-need model, honeymooners can spend more money on sightseeing around London. Make sure to stop by the iconic Buckingham Palace and Tower of London. Catch a ride on the London Eye for a romantic sunset date and stunning views of the city.


Couples looking to have a more relaxing honeymoon laying on the beach should head to Barcelona Beach. Grab your bathing suit and towel and spend the day relaxing under the sun at local beaches like Barcelona Beach and Nova Icària.
