Q: How Long Will It Take To Receive Our Honeymoon Gifts?

A: Wanderable has one of the fastest redemption times in the industry!

By far the fastest redemption option for couples is the ACH Bank Transfer. These are processed within (1) business day but please allow up to (3) additional business days for the funds to appear in your bank account.

Check redemptions are MAILED within (3) business days of the redemption and delivery time will vary by location. Please allow up to (10) business days to receive a bank check in the mail. All redemption options are FREE.

We are always working to minimize the time it takes to transfer gifts to you. Other honeymoon registries require up to 13 business days to send gifts. We think that is pretty ridiculous!

Ask These Important Questions to Find the Best Free Honeymoon Registry

Honeymoon registries have evolved since Wanderable was founded in 2012.

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, honeymoon registries were mainly offered through a local travel agent that allowed friends and family to call or stop in to give a gift toward the couple’s honeymoon. That worked well for the travel agent since they received a favorable margin on selling the trip.

Wanderable helped changed this model by allowing couples to plan their travel with whomever they wished (or just do it themselves) and soon paved the way for a number of new companies offering similar services.

Fast-forward to today and you’ll find dozens of honeymoon registry sites and business models. Before signing up there are a few important things to consider when it comes to a free honeymoon registry.

Can friends and family use their credit cards to give a gift? Lets face it, the majority of people use plastic to pay. What happens when Uncle Joe wants to use his Platinum Visa to pay for your couples massage? A fee is assessed to the couple or guest. There is no way around credit card fees. Even giants like PayPal charge 2.5-3% to process a credit card. Wanderable allows your gift givers to give a gift using cash, check, or credit card.

Can the couple, friends, or family easily call customer service? What happens when Aunt Joan would like to give a gift over the phone or is confused with the website? Wanderable has a toll-free customer service number with a team member ready to help give a gift or answer a question.

Do you mind having advertisements on your honeymoon registry page? In addition to ads on the honeymoon registry page, be on the lookout for direct email advertisements that might include weight loss programs, wedding rings, and reception entertainment. There’s often an additional cost to remove ads from your registry page. Wanderable does not have any advertisements on its registry pages.

Do you want a bare bones registry or common registry features? Most free honeymoon registries have an upgrade fee for basic features like a photo slideshow, custom registry page design, to remove advertisements from the registry page, and access other “premium” features. Unless you’re content with a very basic registry, then the upgrade fee will likely come into play. Wanderable has no “upgrade” fees, subscriptions, or monthly fees. All of the great features of our registry are 100% free to set-up and use!

The team here at Wanderable LOVES honeymoon registries! We hope this post helps you find the perfect honeymoon registry.
