Honeymoon spending ‘on the rise’

The sums of money being spent on honeymoon get-aways by newly-weds from around the UK have increased dramatically in recent years, according to a recent study.

Figures collected on behalf of esure have shown that the typical recently-married British couple spent in excess of £1,600 on their honeymoon, while the corresponding figure for those who tied the knot in the 1980’s was closer to £550.

Many couples add to their debt management problems in order to make their honeymoon a holiday to remember and the insurance firm behind the research has revealed that the amount of spending money newlyweds take away with them has also more than doubled since the 1980s.

Head of esure travel insurance Mike Pickard said: “It’s interesting to see how trends have changed over the years and how much pressure there is now on using the honeymoon as the ultimate break away.”

When it comes to keeping your debt management issues under control it is easier to stay single, the price comparison firm Fool.co.uk claimed recently.
