Two of the co-founders of TheBigDay Travel, Michael Cottam (40) and Terry Beard (58), are both getting married this summer and are using their own honeymoon travel company to plan their own weddings and honeymoons!
Michael Cottam, honeymooning in Kenya and the Seychelles, says Âtaking advantage of our companyÂs services has made the wedding and honeymoon planning much easier.Â
The site allows couples to find experts in their chosen honeymoon destination spot as well as competitive pricing.
ÂWe're using the expertise of one of our Africa experts to arrange our honeymoon -- and when you're planning a vacation as significant as a honeymoon -- itÂs invaluable to be working with someone who's been to your destination many times. Even in a moderately large city like Portland (Oregon), there's a very short list of truly knowledgeable travel specialists for a destination like Africa. So, TheBigDay uses the internet to bring all of these specialists to your doorstep no matter where you live -- and, the internet as a global marketplace means more competition which means better prices for our consumers.Â
Terry Beard, honeymooning in Kauai and Paris, says Âusing our companyÂs services has been extremely practical. ItÂs a very efficient way to communicate with all of our wedding guests coming to town. Our wedding webpage has saved a lot of long-distance calling, and a huge amount of time -- since our guests are coming from several continents. Additionally, through our honeymoon registry, weÂve been able to raise a significant amount of money for a good cause -- Rotary International.Â
Both founders, of course, are leveraging their honeymoon registry, which happens to be the most popular honeymoon registry in the world. Instead of toasters and china, the registry allows guests to pay for portions of the wedding coupleÂs honeymoon travel and activities, which has now evolved into a 21st century wedding tradition. According to Michael Cottam, ÂThe honeymoon registry is a huge time-saver for the wedding guests, and they'll be getting us something they know will really mean something to us -- so we won't spend countless hours returning things we already have 2 or 3 of.Â
TheBigDay Travel is a full-service honeymoon travel resource, allowing couples to plan and book their dream honeymoon travel and activities with assistance from experienced travel agents, and to take advantage of TheBigDay's honeymoon gift registry -- the #1 honeymoon registry in the world.
Interviews with TheBigDay are available on request. TheBigDay carries the BBBOnLine Reliability Seal and endorsements of industry standards such as the TRUSTe Privacy Program so honeymooners can feel secure in trusting their dreams to the service.
