I don't know if it was the agent we got or what but this service was not very helpful at all. We were wanting to go to an all inclusive resort for our honeymoon and the agent was not very helpful. The only thing she did was browse the internet for us to find prices and info which we already did ourselves. Literally the only value we got out of it was not having to pay for our honeymoon all at once and we got a booklet of all our travel info. I'm glad the service was free or I would have not been happy about it at all.

First Discount Travel responded with the following comments:

We are saddened to hear you felt we did not provide you with the experience you were looking for, and greatly apologize. Our mission is to ensure you have the most amazing honeymoon possible, at the best price. The tour companies we work with are accessed through online booking engines, so most everything we book is confirmed online. In addition to the many tour companies we work with, we also check the discounted online agencies to make sure we are offering the lowest price possible. In some cases, the online agencies do offer lower pricing because their business model is built on quantity, not quality. We are able to offer you the lowest price, while providing personalized quality service. We have over 20,000 personal photos in the office, so that we can show you what the resort and beach really look like before it was photo-shopped. In addition, we offer the lowest deposits in the industry. We can lock in your all-inclusive honeymoon with air and hotel for $588 in most situations. The online agencies require payment in full at the time you book it. Without knowing the specifics of your honeymoon, such as the resort you stayed at or the agent you worked with, it’s hard to really figure out why you were unsatisfied with your experience. We do have a lot of honeymoon couples that walk in the door and know exactly where they want to stay, and have been searching the internet extensively. In those situations we hope to be able to add value by recommending tours, showing personal photos of the resort, and offering “cancel for any reason” insurance. Again, we are sorry you feel we did not meet your expectations. We would love for you to call us, and give us more details on the experience (You may ask for Deanna Katz. She is one of the owners). We take all reviews seriously and want to learn what we could have done better, and strive even harder to make sure every client has the honeymoon experience of a lifetime.

We met Jerry from First Discount Travel at a bridal show and loved how much he knew about honeymoon locations! We had never traveled outside of the country before and had no idea where to begin. When Jerry met with us, he asked questions to get a feel for what we would enjoy and had our whole trip planned in less than an hour! He also had personal printed photos from trips he had taken to all of the locations he suggested to us, so we got to see what things actually looked like. Our trip to Jamaica was flawless! We will definitely go back to First Discount Travel in the future!

They were very helpful and really wanted us to go to a place that we really wanted to go. They did not try to force any place on us but suggested sites that they had been to and knew a lot about. Great to deal with and super friendly.

When we initially set out to book our honeymoon, we planned to do it on our own. We googled various key terms and narrowed in on the general region where we wanted to go. And then we got totally overwhelmed! Thankfully we somehow found First Discount Travel (I think it was just through reading reviews like this one) and connected with Holly. We shared some thoughts via e-mail and then had a meeting with her to talk about what we were looking for. After talking through our "vision" for our honeymoon, Holly knew exactly where to send us! We split our time in Anguilla and Antigua and were absolutely blown away by both resorts. The entire two week trip was just plain magical and we could not have done it without Holly and FDT! Our flight between the islands kept getting canceled, the last one with just weeks left until our trip and we never had to worry - Holly had it all under control! I met with her 2 weeks before our trip and she handed me a little pouch with a booklet that had every single detail of our trip inside. That little book became our bible and made airline check-ins, hotel check-ins and transportation an absolute breeze. Our entire experience with FDT was fantastic and I would highly recommend them for any travel needs!

Holly did a very good job explaining the different options and locations. She returned calls and emails quickly and was a delight to work with. The one suggestion we would make is a more expidited way to recieve honeymoon gifts from our registry. It is difficult to use the honeymoon gifts that come through close to the actual honeymoon after we had already paid it off.
