Spring break is right around the corner, and for many, the much needed break could not come any sooner. With the harsh winter weather of recent, a warm destination is probably more than welcome. If you don’t have your break planned, it is time to start! Here are some tips to keep in mind while planning for your break:
- Decide how you want to spend your break. Are you looking to relax and soak in the rays? Or maybe, culture and sightseeing is what you crave? Answering these questions will help you narrow down your options.
- Know what you can afford. Figure out what your budget is, and that number will help you determine where you can go and what you can afford to do on your trip. This could be the difference between your local beach town versus hanging ten in Hawaii.
- Research, research, research. Make sure you research your travel options and where you can get the best prices. Check out airfare aggregator sites, such as Kayak to compare prices before purchasing. If you have not been to your destination before, research your destination to ensure you are prepared with the proper travel documents and currency (if applicable). Research any activities you may want to plan ahead for. You may score some great deals when planning ahead.
Remember, spring break is a week to decompress, recharge and enjoy the company of friends (and/or family). Have fun and safe travels!
