Easiest Part of the Wedding! posted 10/4/2013

It was so great that so many people contributed to our honeymoon fund. We are planning the trip of a lifetime and are excited to spend some alone time together. Traveler's Joy made the whole process so easy. I would recommend it to anyone.

Awesome! posted 10/6/2013

I loved traveler's joy! Great website that is easy to use. Help staff is super helpful as well. Stinks that they take a percentage but they've got to make money. FYI: some more older guests might not like the idea so you might want to do a traditional registry as well.

My husband and I decided to create a honeymoon registry and were not sure what sites to trust. We chose Traveler's Joy and were not disappointed. It was easy to use and we were able to add specific excursions offered in Aruba that we liked best. Receiving the monetary gifts using wire transfer was very easy and it worked well that we could receive general gifts as well. They also provided a "Thank You" List that made it easy to track who gifted us which excursion. We had success with dividing up the price of an excursion into smaller chunks and our entire honeymoon was augmented by daily excursions!

Perfect Registry posted 8/26/2014

Travelers Joy was great! It is perfect for those who already have all the household essentials they need.

Very convenient!! We got all of the honeymoon excursions we wanted this way!! You can self create excursions base on where you are going. I think people are willing to spend a little more money (rather than writing a check) if they know what you're getting (a lot of people wanted to swim with dolphins so I think that they were excited to buy this for us!) :) the only drawback I would say is the fees that they charge. But like I said I think people might splurge on you more than they would if they know what you're getting.

Not worth the fees posted 8/22/2014 (modified 8/22/2014)

This is a great idea for your guests to help contribute to your honeymoon instead of getting gifts, especially if you've already been living together for a long time and are already set on most of your household appliances. The only problem I had with it is that they charge a percentage fee for every amount donated (7.5%), which doesn't seem like a lot until you add it up... For instance, we received $800 (I told people to stop donating and just give us money at the wedding once I saw the fees), which means they took $60 out of that. That's someone's entire gift! I get that they need to pay their own bills & staff, but that's kind of a rip-off for not only the bride and groom, but also the gift-givers when you think about it. If you get $3000 worth of donations, $225 of that goes to them. So basically the person on your registry who gave you, say, $200, well, their gift no longer counts. Basically, instead of contributing to your honeymoon, they just paid Traveler's Joy for you, which, honestly, what did they do for you, other than create a temporary web page for people to donate on? Go the smart route and just have people give you cash/checks at the wedding, or mail it to you if they can't be there in person. Even PayPal would be a better option than this site. IMO, it's a rip-off.

Great Idea! posted 8/18/2014 (modified 8/20/2014)

Traveler's Joy was right up our alley, for a wedding registry! We are adventurous, travel-loving people! When we found out you can register for your honeymoon, we were over joyed. Traveler's Joy was easy to use. They had plenty of "real" registry demos for you to check, before creating your own! The transition process from Traveler's Joy to your bank account or check, was easy and painless, (although, you do have to wait a few days before it deposits!)

The only thing I didn't ADORE about Traveler's Joy was the amount of money they took out of the gift. I felt that I was somehow jipping my guests!

Other than that, the experience was phenomenal!

Thoughts on Traveler's Joy posted 8/12/2014

Overall, Traveler's Joy was great to work with. Very easy to manage online. Initially started my honeymoon registry with honeyfund, but the fees were higher, so I moved it to Traveler's Joy. There are still fees on both ends of the transaction, but not as high. No guests reported any cyber security issues or difficulty with processing transactions to me.

Bad Choice posted 8/6/2014 (modified 8/8/2014)

The website for Traveler's Joy is very user friendly. Please note that the fees for their services are pretty high at 7.5%. So if someone gives you $100 -- you get $92.5. That adds up. If you
don't mind the fee, you should use the site. I stopped using it, however. What really annoyed me was the three additional emails I received from them withing 2 months of my wedding asking for a review. When I attempted to unsubscribe -- they required that I login to change my email settings. Unsubscribe should be one click/one page. I finally gave my honest review on one website, and they disputed it. Your call. It boils down to the fee.

Great Idea! posted 7/25/2014

We loved being able to register for things we wanted to do on our honeymoon! It made our trip even more meaningful to know that our guests contributed to it as well. It was easy to transfer the monetary gifts directly to our bank account in transit!

Traveler's Joy made it so easy for us to track gifts, the person who gave the gift, and their addresses which made it simple for thank you notes!

Saved my life!! posted 7/16/2014

The Knot was wonderful in the sense that I could keep all of the things I needed to do, wanted to do, etc. in one place. It helped me stay organized and on track as well as made it easy for my bridesmaids to stay in the loop since a few of them lived out of town. This site really made the planning for my wedding a breeze. It was almost too easy.

We LOVED it posted 7/9/2014

Traveler's Joy was such a hit for our wedding! Our guests loved the idea of purchasing things for us to do on our honeymoon. The percent that Traveler's Joy takes is completely reasonable and we barely noticed the difference. They made it all so easy from signing up, to listing our excursions, and finally receiving our money. I would absolutely recommend this site to anyone wanting a unique option for their registry!

Best Honeymoon Ever!! posted 5/31/2014 (modified 6/1/2014)

Not that I have any others to compare it to, but registering for our honeymoon was the best thing we could have done. We were 100% worry free. We had all the cash we needed to enjoy ourselves and not feel limited or pressured or held back in any way from having the time of our lives. We were little kids all over again at Disney thanks to Traveler's. I would recommend a honeymoon registry over a physical one to anyone and everyone.

4 Good Reasons to use Travelers Joy posted 5/23/2014 (modified 5/24/2014)

Highly recommend Traveler's Joy for wedding arrangements,
The travel and honeymoon category is a dream and easy to use:
Reasons why we picked Travelers Joy
 We were not looking for a travel agent
 We wanted to completely customize our page without paying an upgrade
 We wanted the full price to show on our registry page where we could include the 7.5% fee and exchange rate in the total cost that the guest would see
 We liked the convenience of receiving payment via direct deposit on demand

Lowest rates available that I found. Allows you to personalize but also has a ton of location specific ideas.

Great for honeymoon registry posted 5/14/2014 (modified 5/15/2014)

Great service. We chose it mainly because it synced with the knot and was fully customizable. It charged our guests a decent percentage though, which was our only hesitation. But then we realized it would be about the same if our guests were paying shipping on a gift, so it was OK. Just wish the percentage was a little lower. This was a good service for us and a great idea if you don't need a lot of physical gifts!

Since I currently am living abroad for work. Th Knot came in handy in helping to initiate the wedding venue process. I was able to narrow down location and costs and therefore minimised the amount of tie spent running around.

Easy to use, well received by guests posted 2/18/2014 (modified 2/19/2014)

For a couple who didn't need a lot of home items, this was a great way to encourage cash gifts in a more creative way. You outline an itinerary on the website and guests can purchase specific items (airfare, hotel stay, breakfast in bed) but rather than redeeming for vouchers or coupons, you set an approximate value and get that amount as a check. That way if plans change or certain tours aren't available, no one's gift goes to waste. User friendly website charges a minimal fee from the bride and groom - guests/gift givers pay no fees.
