Newlyweds opting for 'double' honeymoons
26 January 2009 11:26
Honeymooners are increasingly heading on 'twin-centred' holidays once they get married, according to one marriage website.
Instead of choosing a beach holiday, a cultural visit or an adventure break, many couples are now opting for a mixture and heading to more than one destination to combine adventure and relaxation.
Francesca Moore, spokesperson for hitched.co.uk, explained that these 'two-centre' breaks are increasingly popular as people get the best of both worlds.
"It seems as if two-centre destinations are still popular this year, such as going on a South African safari for a couple of days and then going to a beach destination break, or flying to Sri Lanka and then on to the Maldives," she said.
"As airlines have stop-over points, you can get two places in with just one flight. So they’re called two-centre destinations or twin-centre destinations."
Travel insurance is essential for anyone heading overseas, although those taking part in activity breaks may also wish to make sure they are protected against anything extra their normal policy would not cover them for.
