Newlyweds are no longer looking for a traditional honeymoon, where they’re cocooned in private villas and get to enjoy lazy days on the beach.
Now, they want to explore different destinations with other millennials. It’s become so popular that it’s given birth to Contiki-moons, a honeymoon, but with a group of people aged between 18 and 35.
Estimates reveal that around 10 percent of all Contiki clients are couples, and there’s been a two percent increase in travellers who join a Contiki as a couple from 2018 to 2019.
Wedding planning can be quite demanding. Couples get so caught up in organising their big day that there’s little time to plan their romantic holiday.
Not all couples are the same. One partner may want to see a historical sight, while the other would want to laze by the pool. With trips like these, you can experience a destination as a couple but also by yourself.
