Teletext.JPGBeach honeymoons have fallen out of favour with today’s honeymooners, finds new research. The traditional two week sun and sand break has been dumped in favour of activity-based adventures with others opting for a UK-break or a city break or a cruise. While 58% of the 2000 honeymooners surveyed said that the two week resort holiday was old-fashioned, couples are still prepared to shell out for new honeymoon trends.

The average honeymoon is estimated at costing £2,580 with just over £1000 spent on flights and accomdation each and a further £922 for spending money with £543 taken for excursions and activities.

Many newlyweds are now opting for a two part honeymoon with a short haul break straight after the weekend and a far flung holiday later in the year with reasons cited as including not being able to get time off work after the wedding (6%) and to make celebrations last longer (9%). Couples are also opting for registering for honeymoon gifts rather than a traditional gift registry
