How to Score Honeymoon Upgrades

Posted by Brandon
Everyone likes special treatment on their honeymoon. I've put together five strategies for scoring that upgrade.

1) Coach to Business Class or First Class: If you have elite status on an airline, try to use that airline for your honeymoon flights. Wait in a line to personally see an airline agent when you check-in. Mention you'd like to know if there are any upgrades available and that you are on your honeymoon. If they say yes, ask them if they can help you celebrate your marriage in style with a complimentary upgrade. Most importantly, be nice, smile, and look super cute.

2) Upgraded Room: When you first contact the hotel, don't mention it is your honeymoon until after you've received a price quote. Pick the room you are willing to pay for and ask the reservation specialist if there is a complimentary honeymoon room upgrade. Hotels want honeymooners to return and celebrate their anniversaries with them so are usually willing to role out the upgrades if space is available.

3) Room Extras: When you are checking into the hotel, remind the hotel check in staff that you are on your honeymoon. This almost guarantees some complimentary chocolate, champagne, possibly a second room upgrade and other goodies delivered to your room.

4) Dining: Always mention you're on your honeymoon to the maître d' at each restaurant and when you book your reservation. The best table in the restaurant will likely be reserved for you and you may receive some chef special treatment or complimentary dessert.

5) Chauffeur Service: Most hotels have a fleet of really nice cars used to transport VIP guests. Inquire at the front desk if this service is included in your stay and if not, could they make an exception since you are on your honeymoon.

Have you tried something that worked? If so, please share your recommendations.
