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.
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!
Traveller's joy is an easy way to register for honeymoon gifts! Guests were able to quickly give a gift without problems. Super fast, great way to save up for a honeymoon!
I used to website to try something different. It was very user friendly. It was nice for my guest, they enjoyed giving gifts towards things to do on our honeymoon.
We didn't need more things and this gave our family and friends a chance to give $$$ towards our honeymoon. You can select types of excursions and different gift prices so there is something for everyone's budget!!!
Highly recommended by another friend who used them for her wedding registry. Everything was simple to set up, and we got our registry gifts for the honeymoon quickly. We never would've been able to afford this AND pay for our wedding, so this gave us the chance to have a real vacation. Hooray! :D
I put this for my shower and to my surprise it was my favorite gift it paid for all my excursions on my cruise. My Husband and I are older and we have lived together for a while so this was the perfect gift.
it was so easy to use and spend..
This tool is easy to use and versatile. I created my own registry items and broke them up into affordable pieces for my friends and family. When I had questions, I got very fast, helpful replies. The Thank You's feature is really nice too. You can track it online or download your list to a spreadsheet.
Just one gripe. Gifters are prompted to 'send a card' along with their gift which deducts several dollars from their gift, and I don't think they're told how much that is reducing their gift amount. The card arrives in the mail days after you've already been notified of their gift online, including the message that is printed on the hardcopy mailing. I considered mentioning this in our homepage greeting and asking people not to send cards, but it seemed tacky. Now it occurs to me I could have couched it as a plea for the environment. Otherwise, it was a great tool and paid for our entire honeymoon.
Traveler's Joy allowed you to personalize your honeymoon - from pictures, to descriptions, and even amounts. The more you personalize your page, the more your family and friends love it!
I wasn't sure where to even begin when I was looking for a honeymoon registry. I researched many sites and found that Traveler's Joy had the best rates and the most positive reviews. It was very easy to set up the registry. We liked the convenience of choosing pre-made registry items or personalizing other items to add to the list. We didn't hear any complaints from any of our friends or family that used the website. The checks were sent right to our home (there are other options as well). Very satisfied and highly recommend this site!
Similar to everyone else, my husband (boyfriend at the time) each had our own households previously and had been living together for about 1.5 years before he proposed, so we already had all the "traditional" items that we would care to need.
My mother-in-law actually suggested a honeymoon registry and when I did a Google search, Traveler's Joy was one of the top results. To be honest, I didn't really research other options, but apparently TJ charges the lowest in fees. I still thought 7.5% was a little steep, and for those of my friends that had inquired about it or had otherwise read about the fee, they asked if they could send me the funds via PayPal instead (to which I said of course!).
The website was super easy to use and once we had actually figured out what we were doing for our honeymoon (western Caribbean cruise), it made it easier to personalize more of the gifts. We had started with the western Caribbean cruise "instant registry" option and then edited the descriptions and/or pictures if necessary to reflect our specific cruise line and desired shore excursions. Based on what people actually gifted, it looks like people are much more willing to contribute towards activities and food.
We were notified via email every time someone made a gift and the gift redemption process was extremely easy. I always chose the ACH option after waiting the 72 hours for them to verify gifts made with credit cards weren't fraudulent and the funds were deposited into my bank account in a few days.
The website also keeps track of who gifted what, as well as their contact information, which I know will make writing our thank you cards much easier.
We still maintained a traditional registry with a few options for those who didn't feel comfortable with the idea of a honeymoon registry, but thankfully only a couple people purchased off of it.
Overall, about 27% of our cash gifts were from our honeymoon registry and the rest were in the form of actual cash or checks, so I felt like this was a good alternative, but obviously less preferred because of the service fees.
I enjoyed being able to pick things for my guest to donate to. My husband and I plan on taking a honeymoon soon.(he's military so his schedule varies) We could not pick a place so most people gave us a general donation. We appreciated that there is an option to do that. When we finally get to go on our honeymoon, I will look here to get an idea about the things we can do and a general budget.
Traveler's Joy is wonderful! My husband and I lived together for 4 years before we got married so the last thing we needed was a panini press or another toaster oven; I mean, we had STUFF, travel is one of the things we love to do together. Registering at Traveler's Joy was the perfect solution! Our guests were able to donate to an experience we actually wanted and it made gift giving so simple for those that were unable to attend our big day. Redeeming is a breeze too; all I did was submit some banking information and the money was in our checking account 3 days later. Seriously, skip all the other nonsense and register with Traveler's Joy.
Travelers Joy made my planning and registry a breeze and took a lot of stress off of my list of priorities. I can honestly say, this site is a BIG help and the site is also user friendly. I got great reviews from my guest and I got all off my gifts when I was ready to request them from the site in a matter of a few day. Thank you so much Traveler's Joy it was a joy to use your site.
This was a great way to receive money towards our honeymoon. It was very easy to transfer the funds; however we were disappointed to see how much in service charges we lost.
My husband and I had most households items we needed already, so we did a small registry at Macy*s and one at Traveler's Joy. It was a very nice experience and I would recommend them to anyone. The only cost is a very small fee per gift. You can choose to pay it yourself, or have the gift giver pay it. We chose to pay it ourselves, and I think it was something like 3%. It was definitely worth it. We received many gifts that we can now use toward a honeymoon.
Registering my honeymoon was simple through this website. Everyone found it easy to navigate and thought that it was great as well!
Traveler's Joy made planning our Honeymoon extremely easy. People had so much fun "picking gifts" for us, requesting photos of the different excursions we chose. I had so many people tell me what a great idea a honeymoon registry was and how more people need to do it! It also made my Bridal Shower so much happier and easier. When I requested the money, they seamlessly sent the money to my bank account and I am happy to say that it is paying for our flights to Hawaii. We cannot wait to go!
Loved using traveler's job for our wedding gift registry. It is a super simple site where you can easily create your own page and make it as detailed as you'd like. Once you pick your honeymoon destination, the site even picks out popular sites and gifts for that location so you don't really have to do ANY work! Site is also very easy for guests of the wedding to donate to. I would highly recommend using this site for your honeymoon registry (if you choose to have one). They take a small percentage of money that is donated, but I found that all of the honeymoon sites do!
