Title: Honeymoon Registry for Travel Agents


1
Honeymoon Registry for Travel Agents
2
What is a Honeymoon Bridal Registry?
  • On our online honeymoon registry, Brides Grooms
    list anything they want to do on their honeymoon
    even portions of their trip. First they book
    their travel as normal, then they go online and
    create their own bridal registry list.
  • It works just like a wedding gift registry. 
    Instead of buying pots or pans, toasters or
    towels, guests purchase portions of their dream
    honeymoon as a wedding gift. We do not book
    travel or make reservations. We provide Brides
    Grooms a way to get more money to spend on their
    trip or to get reimbursed for monies already
    spent.
  • Its free to agents, there is no set up fee for
    brides and grooms, there is a 10 total
    processing fee (7 service fee and 3 credit card
    fee) to cover management of the account, gift
    cards, wedding web page etc.

3
For example, instead of a crock pot guests can
buy the couple a Kingston Day Tour or a
Romance Package. Using and promoting the
honeymoon registry, the couple receives an
average of 2000.00 in gift money to spend on
their honeymoon.
4
Why do todays Brides Grooms want to use a
honeymoon registry?
  • The average age of new honeymooners is 25 27.
  • They are computer savvy, are you?
  • More couples live together prior to marriage and
    already have a household.
  • The rising cost of the ceremony is going up
    towards 20,000, couples still want to take a
    honeymoon but many need financial help.
  • Second marriages comprise 37 of all weddings
    performed.
  • Instead of ending up with a checks the night of
    their wedding, and leaving the next day with no
    way to cash them, with the registry they receive
    the gift money early enough to know how much
    money they will have to spend to upgrade or buy
    extras.
  • Couples dont want to send out announcement cards
    asking to Please send a check to my travel agent
    at or No gifts please just cash.
  • They want their guests to feel involved and
    choose a personalized gift.
  • Using the honeymoon registry online lets
    them get gifts on the day of the wedding or even
    while they are away. If you do registries by
    hand and guests mail in checks to you it
    eliminates last minute presents for your
    honeymooners.

5
Why do guests like using the honeymoon registry?
  • More and more people like to shop from home
    Traffic, crowds and gasoline prices growing
    higher are just a few reasons that help to
    explain why on-line purchasing is up. According
    to new figures released by the US Department of
    Commerce, online retail sales totaled USD14.3
    billion in the fourth quarter of 2003, a rise of
    28 percent on the preceding quarter.
  • Guests dont feel like they are giving anything
    personal when they just mail in a check or stick
    cash in an envelope. The honeymoon registry
    allows them to be more involved with choosing
    something really personal.
  • Guests have less time and are looking for
    convenience through technology. How many people
    find it easier to email a letter instead of
    putting one in the mail box or shipping something
    at the post office?
  • Using the honeymoon registry takes the guesswork
    out of choosing something that the wedding couple
    really wants (and worrying that might return it.)

6
How does the Honeymoon Registry Benefit Travel
Agents?
  • You have a way to get your clients extra money to
  • spend on their booking.
  • Last month Linda and James Dodge received
    7,020.00 to
  • spend on their honeymoon through their agents
    registry.
  • This is from Linda and James Dodges actual
    registry, using the registry they were able to
    upgrade their room category.
  • Do you have clients that want a longer or more
    luxurious honeymoon, or would rather have monies
    towards their honeymoon instead of more pots and
    pans? Now you can offer a way to increase the
    amount of money Brides and Grooms have to spend
    on their trip just by using the honeymoon
    registry.

7
Make 20 commission on registry item service
charges
  • You can make commissions on more than their
    travel booking. You will receive commissions on
    the 7 service fees of items that are purchased,
    like the private dinner,spa treatments, extra
    activities , even shopping !
  • You receive 20 of all service fees collected.
  • Last month our highest commissions were paid to
    Travel Agent,. Melissa Frame. She helped promote
    her clients registry and received 140.00
    commission from us.

You can give your clients their own wedding
website increasing the services that you can
offer them!

Your clients will have an online photo album,
email wizard and blog!
10
Take the Hassle out of In House Registries
  • Why print cards and account for checks in the
    mail from the couples weddings guests? You get no
    marketing exposure from people sending you things
    in the mail.
  • We do all the accounting for you! Its simple,
    free, automated and gives your clients beautiful,
    classy, state of the art technology to use as
