The travel industry is abuzz with buzz words as babymoons, flashpacking and glamping emerge as new age rivals to the humble holiday package.
While most travellers are still happy to book a “holiday” or “vacation”, numerous variations on the terms are emerging in South Africa and overseas to describe particular styles of getaways.
Flight Centre’s marketing manager, Deanne Grove, gives readers the low down on what these new terms mean.
Babymoons: Babymoons are holidays for mums and dads-to-be take before the baby arrives. Rest, relaxation and pampering – all within easy reach of home – are normally the priorities for babymooners.
Buddymoons: On a buddymoon, you and the love of your life say “I do” and enjoy the honeymoon in the company of friends and family.
