How do we begin?
It begins with a single phone call to one of our two leisure
travel offices. One of our travel coordinators will schedule
a meeting with you to discuss your ideas and budget. During
this exploration of possible travel options, you can decide
if you want to list your honeymoon on the Accent Travel Registry
website. If your friends and relatives are interested in contributing
to your honeymoon or special event, they can access the website
to learn about your plans and get instructions on how to give
a monetary gift. To personalize their webpage, many decide
to include a photo. To see an example of a registry page click
When can we begin the registry?
The registry can begin any time after a destination has been
selected. The most successful registries allow enough time
to let family and friends know contributions can be a wedding
or special event gift. Most of our registered clients will
send informative emails or notes with their registry website
What kind of honeymoons or special trips does Accent Travel
have to offer?
To find the trip that offers the most value for you, our travel
consultants take advantage of both American Express and Accent
Travel negotiated packages to travel destinations around the
globe. Whether your trip is regional or international, we
offer valuable guidance.
We also provide a full range of special interest vacations
- Historical / Cultural - Food /Cuisine - Biking / Outdoor
Adventure - Spa - Exotic Cruise and many more.
This season our Registry participants have traveled to Mexico's
Mayan Sun Coast, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Colorado, Iceland, Italy
and cruised to the Caribbean and Alaska.
Do the registry contributions pay for the entire Registry
While contributions can significantly reduce the cost of the
trip to you, typically they do not cover the entire trip.
Additionally, the timing of gifts usually do not coincide
with payments required by the suppliers of your honeymoon
or special trip. Your emphasis and timing of your registry
announcement to friends and relatives will greatly determine
how and when people respond. We recommend that you budget
your honeymoon for what you feel comfortable paying for yourself,
not depending entirely on the contributions of others.
How does payment work for the Special Trip?
Accent Travel works as a travel agent for you, helping to
select and arrange the special trip. The airline, hotel, cruise
or tour company selected will have specific payment requirements
that will be explained before booking your honeymoon. Typically
an initial deposit is needed to secure the reservation and
a final payment is due 45 to 60 days before your trip departure.
Each travel company will have specific detailed information
for purchase and cancellation. You should plan on paying these
scheduled payments if contributions are not sufficient to
cover the deposit and final payment.
How do we keep track of contributions?
Contributors to your honeymoon / special trip are asked to
send checks or call in credit cards payments. If a contributor
would like to give cash, we request that they not send via
mail, but stop by one of our Accent locations.
Each contribution is processed through our accounting department
when checks are sent or credit cards are called in. Your travel
consultant is also notified when commitments are received
from the honeymoon webpage. Prior to your trip departure,
your travel consultant can give you a registry
account balance update.
A formal accounting log with names, payment amounts and special
wishes will be sent a few weeks after your honeymoon. If you
desire, we can send a check for the existing registry balance
amount one week prior to your trip departure. Any monies collected
after that will be sent by check after returning from the
How long does it take to have our registry website up and
After signing up for the registry, the site can be up and
running in about a week. Your photograph can be added at that
time, or later if you choose to include it.
Can we apply our American Express Annual Card Benefit to our
honeymoon or speical trip?
Yes, this annual benefit can be offered if your trip meets
the American Express program requirements. For more information
Can we share a special photo from the trip after we come back?
Yes, we invite everyone registered to share a trip photo with
friends and relatives on their Accent webpage. Simply email
your photo to us and we will share it on your webpage.
How much does it cost to setup an Accent Travel Honeymoon Registry?
