About Us

MoonRings™ is dedicated to serving the specialized needs and requirements of honeymoon and anniversary travelers, as well as those desiring a destination wedding. Because these events are truly unique (and costly) in nature, couples often search far and wide for credible and knowledgeable planning and booking assistance. It is our goal to be the trusted advisor throughout the planning and booking process - from initial research through completed vacation or wedding.

MoonRings accomplishes this goal by delivering an innovative set of products and services geared specifically to the honeymooner and/or destination wedding couple. We start by helping the couple dream about what's possible, taking into account personal interests, time of year and budget. As soon as a decision has been reached on the destination, we work with the couple to plan and book a personalized itinerary or wedding. Finally, we provide assistance during the honeymoon or wedding, if necessary, making sure any problems that arise are taken care of quickly and correctly. The information, ideas, tools and trips on our site have been developed specifically with you in mind - we understand this is a special event so we treat it that way.

MoonRings, Inc. is a Delaware corporation. We are a member of The American Society of Travel Agents, IATAN and accredited by the Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC). We are also part of the California Seller of Travel Program (CST #2060655-50).

About MoonRings

Q: How is MoonRings different from a traditional travel agency?

A: Unlike most traditional travel agencies, our sole focus is on destination weddings, honeymoons and anniversary travel. This means we have a much better understanding of, and appreciation for your needs, frame of mind and concerns from day one. As a result, we have streamlined the planning and booking process to make working with us an easy, enjoyable and timesaving experience.

Our knowledge of the destinations we serve also sets us apart. All of our Relationship Managers and Travel Consultants are extremely experienced, and travel to the destinations they serve frequently. Our local destination contacts have personal relationships with our staff.

As a national travel service with a discriminating (and deserving) clientele, distinguished travel suppliers (hotels, tour operators and the like) want to work with MoonRings. This attention from the supplier community translates into better value for you - you get a better experience for your travel dollar.

Finally, it's all about service - we take the utmost care to provide the high level of personal service you deserve. This is a special trip. We aim to make planning, booking and traveling a stress-free experience that you can enjoy with confidence.

Q: I don't know where to go on my honeymoon or destination wedding. How can MoonRings help?

A: This is a common situation for many couples, and we know from experience that "one size does not fit all" when it comes to honeymoons and other special trips.

We help by getting to know you, understanding your preferences and needs, as well as your previous travel experience. This is done by working through the MoonRings Destination Evaluation, which involves an online component followed by a conversation with a Relationship Manager. During this process, we will analyze your needs and come up with a number of suggestions. We will then help you narrow the list, after which we will put you in touch with one or more of our Travel Consultants to determine exactly what is best for you.

Q: Who are the people who will be helping me with my honeymoon or other special trip?

A: There are two types of people who will assist you with your trip: a MoonRings Relationship Manager and/or a MoonRings Travel Consultant.

Our Relationship Managers will take the time to understand your honeymoon dreams, desires and needs and then connect you with the right Travel Consultant, based on your destination(s) of interest. Our managers have a broad range of destination knowledge so they can help you narrow down the choices. Once you are working directly with a Travel Consultant, your Relationship Manager will still be responsible for the overall quality of your planning, booking and travel experience. They are there to answer questions and assure your relationship with MoonRings is a good one. Finally, they will remain as your primary point of contact within MoonRings should you desire travel assistance post-honeymoon.

Our Travel Consultants are true destination experts for the locations we serve. They are here to share their inside information with you! Their local knowledge helps you focus on the places and activities you will enjoy most. They are the ones who will make your trip happen, and will be there to support you every step of the way.

Testimonials

While you'll see quotations from MoonRings' travelers in a variety of places on our website, we are pleased to share even more commentary from our many current and past clients.

We wanted to tell you that the trip was amazing. It really was paradise and I can't really say much more than thanks, thanks, and thanks. If any of our friends are looking for an amazing trip, we will definitely send them to MoonRings!

-- C&M, Ashland, Massachusetts

Everything worked out perfectly! The trip was INCREDIBLE!!!!! OMG, the villa we rented was AMAZING, the pictures on the web didn't even do it ANY justice. The chef and his wife were wonderful as well. It was heaven - awesome job!

-- The S. Family, New York, New York

Hawaii could not be a more stress-free place….The Beach House was awesome, you got us a great seat right by the water, and you know how that view is… The tiny sushi restaurant you sent us to seriously could not have been better. We loved it…. We thought you planned a really great trip and couldn't have been happier with it. You fit in the right amount of activities, but you left us plenty of time to just chill out, which was much needed. We'll definitely be recommending MoonRings to anyone that tells us that they're planning a big trip. Thanks again.

-- P&E, Chicago, Illinois

All in all it was a perfect honeymoon for us. Each place was so different from each of the others that we felt like we had 4 distinct mini vacations, each one hitting a different interest of ours. All of your recommendations were spot on (including the smaller ones, such as getting a GPS for the Hunter Valley - life saver). Thanks again for everything and we look forward to working with you again in the future. We will definitely recommend you to our friends.

-- J&L, Los Angeles, California

We had the absolute most amazing time of our lives in Tanzania! Everything we had hoped and imagined it would be was far exceeded by what we actually experienced!! Thank you so much!! We were right in the midst of the migration and saw 3 river crossings complete with crocodiles joining in on the crossing fun! We ended up with over 7,000 photos and 6 hours of video. We could not have imagined a more perfect honeymoon, and all of the places you recommended were great! We are so grateful to you for planning such an amazing adventure for us!

-- D&A, Chicago, IL

Aloha from New Jersey (that just doesn't sound right)! We had an AWESOME trip as usual! Thanks for all your help!!!! Everything went according to plan and was terrific! We had a GREAT time, it was tough to leave but we look forward to returning soon...

-- G&K, Somerset, New Jersey

Our trip was fantastic, thank you so much for making it special! Ravello was amazing, we met Reese Witherspoon at our hotel which was very cool! … I am sure we will work together in the future, you were a pleasure to work with!!

-- A&T, Chicago, Illinois

Our honeymoon to Thailand was the trip of a lifetime. We truly had an incredible time. Thanks again for all of your help throughout the process. We would have been lost without you.

-- S&T, Washington, DC

We had an amazing safari and trip! We'll never forget it. Thank you for all of your suggestions! I'm now trying to figure out how to get my husband back on a long plane ride for another safari... maybe this time to Tanzania?!

-- The D. Family, Norcross, Georgia

I don't know what you said to the Four Seasons Maui, but they treated us with VIP service! From the moment we arrived and were greeted, to when we checked in (we were triple upgraded to an ocean front one bedroom suite) and when we arrived in our room, there was a handwritten note, a red rose, and a bottle of champagne! Thanks again for giving us the best advice and for helping us plan our honeymoon - it was simply perfect! And I look forward to going on vacation again and hope you'll be able to help us out once more! We love you and we love MoonRings!

-- L&L, San Jose, California

In short the trip was absolutely fantastic! We have yet to stop talking about it. We had an incredible time and we don't think that we possibly could have picked a more enjoyable itinerary so thank you so much for your great ideas and recommendations! We had perfect weather so we were able to enjoy the beaches both in San Sebastian and the Costa Brava. The restaurants were all top notch, and the hotels – we haven't stopped gushing yet! The trip was fantastic from beginning to end and we couldn't thank you enough for organizing it for us. Look forward to working with you on our next adventure.

-- A&T, New York, New York

We're back and the trip was fabulous. The Sofitel in Moorea did a very nice job but the Four Seasons in Bora Bora was epic. Truly extraordinary in every aspect. The trip was totally amazing and I look forward to telling you all about it. Also, we got engaged!!!!

-- J&J, San Francisco, California

The week in St. Barths was utterly amazing - this villa was totally spectacular! For me, a perfect location because close to town, to two great beaches and set into the hillside with an amazing view. Restaurant choices were great. So you can see you hit it out of the park again. We can't wait until next year! Thank you for all your hard work to make this such a special, memorable trip for all of us.
