  • Spring Break travel tips for students

    It’s officially Spring, which means that travelers who are still in university must be overjoyed! You can finally take those sandals and t-shirts out of the closet and get started on your summer tan. But that’s not all, because at most US universities, Spring break is coming…and that means that you can escape the classroom and your dorm room for a few weeks, and go traveling!

    The traditional Spring break destinations is preferably warm, and has a beach with lots of parties, but if you feel like a bit of variety, grab your friends and go somewhere unusual. But before you go, here are some tips that can make your amazing Spring break trip even better – Spring break travel tips for students!

    Spring break travel destinations are practically endless, and it depends only on your disposition, and how much money you managed to save for your break. But even if your wallet is kind of empty nowadays, don’t worry, there are always cheap and great alternatives to Cancun!


    The top Spring break destinations for 2011 are Cancun, Mexico (of course!), Panama City, Miami, Puerto Vallarta, Bahamas, Jamaica and probably every other beach resort with great parties, but Europe¬† is very popular as well. But if you can’t find a cheap flight to some trendy European city, there’s always the road trip, the American holiday par excellence.

    If you haven’t been on a road trip yet, this is your chance to do it. Get together with some good friends, rent a car (if none of you has a ride) and go Dutch to pay for the rental and the gas. You don’t even have to go very far, the US is full of great roads and highways!

    Health and Safety

    Spring break is the time when you go crazy, but not too crazy. So don’t forget to pack a first aid kit, cell phone and if you’re on a road trip, tool, a flashlight, a fire extinguisher, water and snacks in case the car breaks down. Bring your health insurance card and let your family and friends know where you’re going.

    Also, don’t leave visible name and address tags on your luggage -better to be paranoid than sorry! There are lots of Spring break horror stories going around, so it’s better to travel in groups of at least three people at all times. Now for your health: wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water (bottled water, preferably) and keep an eye on your drink if you’re going out.

    Prepare your home

    If you live off-campus, let your neighbors know that you’ll be away for a few days, and they will probably be able to keep a eye on your house while you’re gone. Also, go to your local post office and ask them to hold your mail. Move your valuables away from the window, and it also helps if you close your curtain on the first floor of your house.
