Anyone planning a destination honeymoon in the fall of 2020 or are you holding off until the Covid-19 pandemic is over?

We're thinking about Jamaica, as it seems the safest option right now, however I just don't know if I'll feel comfortable flying by then. Anyone else struggling with this decision?

    Lol! I hope one of your three wonderful options works out so you don't stay home "and be sad". 馃

    We were originally going to Kauai in Sept, but that plan has be scrapped. I thought about places like Aruba and St. Lucia, but from what I could tell, they're letting in Americans too, so I'm just going to keep my distance.


    The current plan is up in the air, but I've booked hotels in Banff, Collingwood, and Niagara Falls (good deals right now and free cancellation!). If things are ok in Canada, we'll go to Banff. If things aren't ok, we'll decide between Collingwood and Niagara Falls, depending on how both areas are doing. If nothing is ok, I'll just stay home and be sad like I have most of 2020, lol.

    I am still planning to have our honeymoon IF we proceed with our wedding.
    We are going to Aruba which currently has 0 cases, so I feel comfortable being there - The only worry is the plane and airport.

    The quarantine aspect is a really good point! I hadn't thought of that...

    We are not going out of the country for our honeymoon. We are supposed get married Feb 2021 I'm still not sure if we will have to postpone. If I did leave the country I'd also have to factor in the 2 week quarantine we'd have to do when we got back and I'm pretty sure I'd never be able to get a week off before wedding, a week for honeymoon plus 2 weeks to quarantine from work for vacation so we will be staying in Canada after if we do get married on schedule.

    We have decided after everything that鈥檚 been going on we just want to support Canada right now. We figured there are many places in Canada we love or haven鈥檛 even seen before so we are considering going to another province when we can! We live in Ontario, so thinking maybe British Columbia! Until we feel comfortable travelling we will choose somewhere in Ontario to do a mini honeymoon!

    To give you all some hope, I work in the travel industry and know of a few countries looking into covering tourists for $10 per day (possibly even less if it becomes a mandatory entry requirement). I also know of a major insurer who is looking to cover COVID-19 within their travel insurance policies. Put it on the back burner for now and see what happens next, but please know that if you do feel comfortable going on your honeymoon in 2020, it will be possible. Personally, our European honeymoon was cancelled and now we are considering; Antigua, St Lucia, Mexico, or St. Vincent & the Grenadines for October onwards. If we book, we will make sure cancellation policies are generous.

    We鈥檝e called off our honeymoon until this blows over. Even if they lift quarantining procedures, we don鈥檛 want to risk not having health insurance and getting sick while away.

    Thanks everyone! Our issue at the moment is that we were originally supposed to get married in Florida and already purchased our plane tickets. The airline won't reimburse us or give us a credit at this time as "flights will be fully operational by November". If we cancel our tickets, then we will be charged a fee. *sigh* In any case, we definitely are not going to Florida, so we're trying to find an alternative that seemed 'safe' to not lose the cost of the tickets. That said, things may change by November should the travel advisory be extended again, at which point they will give us full credit and all will be well in our world. Just trying to have a backup plan, but I agree with you all and am also looking at local spots to have a mini getaway until we can (and want) to travel by plane again. Smiley heart

    Our wedding is in winter 2020 and if our wedding can even go as planned, we will be avoiding any travelling until this whole thing completely blows over.

    If you do plan to go I would make sure that your travel insurance covers everything covid related. Cancelation, illness, emergency flights home etc.


    We're getting married in October but are not traveling this year. We might to a mini moon, especially if the Atlantic provences are still bubbled up together, but we would drive and stay the weekend.
