All-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico are great deals.

"Peak wedding season is generally late Spring/Summer, which aligns with shoulder season (heading into hurricane season) in the Caribbean," says Travelzoo Deal Expert Jaime Freedman. "Get some insurance to feel warm and fuzzy about coverage, and go enjoy eating and drinking until your heart's content without worrying about the money you're spending — because it's all been taken care of at one price. There are a ton of adults-only all-inclusives, so you can enjoy some peace and quiet on the moon."
Travelzoo says the best destinations to find a deal are Riviera Maya, Jamaica, and Dominican Republic.

"This is one of the larger Caribbean countries, and where you fly into can make a difference. It's typically cheaper to fly into Santo Domingo than Punta Cana," says Budget Travel's Contray. "There are many budget-friendly beachfront resorts in Santo Domingo, and it's not hard to find an all-inclusive for less than $150 a night, per couple."

Smile at whatever happens.

"There are deals to be had in Cancun, but head out of the hotel zone to Tulum or Playa Del Carmen," says Contray. "Playa Del Carmen has more of a tourist scene, but you can escape that at the high-design (and adults-only) Hotel Deseo, where rooms start as low as $112 a night."

"You can still get a basic cabana on the beach for around $50 a night if you aren't looking for lots of frills," according to Budget Travel's Contray.

17. Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts (Image Source: Shutterstock)

A general tip for honeymooners from Lonely Planet's Reid: "Try to avoid honeymooning in June or Summer. If that's when you get married, plan your honeymoon for the shoulder season of September, October, or November. Many, many destinations are cheaper. Even September works.

"Beach rentals in Martha's Vineyard can still be enjoyed, and prices drop by 50 percent after Labor Day. So I'll say September, Martha's Vineyard — get around on bike trails, dig for clams, open wide beaches you can still swim in, and cheaper prices after kids go back to school. It's a two-week window or so before it gets too cold."


18. Mediterranean Cruise (Image Source: Flickr user tambak)

Jonesing for a trip to Europe? Perhaps a cruise would suit your budget needs.

"You can find some great deals on the Mediterranean in the Summer, when prices in Europe soar. This is generally because flights there will be pricey (time to cash in your miles!)," says Travelzoo's Freedman. "But once you're on the ship, you've paid one price for lodging, transportation to major coastal cities, and all food and entertainment. I'm finding handfuls of options under $115 per person per night."

For those craving a trip with European flair, consider Montreal.

"No, it's not the same as jetting off to Paris, but this charming city has lots of great restaurants and stunning architecture, plus you won't be paying for everything in Euros," says Budget Travel's Contray. "Hotels, especially downtown, are around $125 a night, and the subway system makes it easy to get to the inexpensive restaurants and shops in the Plateau."

"This retro California desert town has seen a six percent drop in the average airfare price — flights were less than $250 from major West Coast cities," says Contray. "There are lots of great hotels as low as $80 a night."

There is also a thriving vacation rental market, and you can get a one-bedroom condo with a full kitchen for less than $100, the Budget Travel expert says.
