Of course, factors like the duration and the accommodation can be altered to suit the financial needs, but here is a list that can really help you decide! These affordable honeymoon packages out of India will definitely be ideal for an exotic, loving time with your better half. (P.S. Rates are approximate values for a week-long honeymoon (7 days and 6 nights), the range includes budget airlines as well as budget hotels)
