    Press coverage and awards

    We’ve had some great media coverage since we launched 101 Honeymoons in May 2010. Here’s a selection of some of our awards and favourite press clippings.

    “The website both looks beautiful, and is beautifully simple. It is constructed around a grid of 101 images: hover over one, and up pops a summary of the holiday. Click through and you get more detail, including Jane’s verdict, and information from the holiday company on what’s on offer and how to book.

    “Also, the variety of holidays is fantastic. Much more is on offer than just traditional flop-by-the-beach options (though there are plenty of them too) – anything from a UK break in a retro VW campervan, to diving in the Cayman Islands, India by luxury train, and a Kenyan safari.

    “You can narrow down what you’re looking for by price, location and what you want (buzzing nightlife, a fabulous spa, to view wildlife etc), as well as by saying what you’re like (eg culture fiends, sporty, bone idle).

    “I also like the quiz. By answering 10 multiple choice questions – including what’s on your iPod when you travel, and what sunglasses you wear – Jane comes up with a selection of suitable honeymoons.”

    “Two former Sunday Times travel writers, Mark Hodson and David Wickers, have founded 101holidays.co.uk, moving beyond the user-generated reviews of many travel sites to offer the kind of quality writing that is the product of four decades of exploring the world for a living. Just over a year after launch, 101 Holidays has a spin-off site, 101 Short Breaks, and is about to unveil 101 Honeymoons.”

    “Like the other sites in the 101 series the layout is colourful and easy to use. A collage of 101 images sits on the homepage; simply hover or click on one to get more information…

    “In a world where user generated content is swamping the web, 101Honeymoon proudly declares to contain none at all, instead it’s all about expert recommendation…

    “101Honeymoons is a superb source of inspiration, ideas and advice for those soon to say ‘I do’.”

    – Website of the Week, Skyscanner.net, 18 May 2010

    “Websites like 101 Honeymoons are here to rescue us from the potential doom of packaged honeymoons and lacking inspiration, serving up 101 ‘oooh, that sounds lovely’ ideas.”
