This Is How Much Money a Honeymoon Costs

We won’t beat around the bush: Honeymoons are expensive. After learning the average cost of a honeymoon is now $5,342, it’s not surprising to hear 80 percent of couples spend more on their honeymoon than they would on just any old vacation. Of course, you may spend more or way less than this price tag, as seen in The Knot 2017 Real Weddings Study. It all depends where you go, what you do and how long you stay.

What makes a newlywed trip so pricey? While the average spend is a tally of all expenses (including transportation, accommodations, meals, shopping and attractions), travel and lodging take up nearly 80 percent of the total cost.

Couples will shell out an average of $1,565 for travel (think: round-trip, international airfare) and spend an average of $2,635 on lodging. Clearly, honeymooners are willing splurge on flights to an amazing destination, and lovely accommodations once they arrive. And can you blame them? It’s their honeymoon! And since 89 percent of couples crave rest and relaxation on their honeymoon, it’s important to stay somewhere luxurious enough to make staying put and chilling feel totally justified.
