Cheap Spring Break 2010 Packages For College Students

Cheap Spring Break 2010 Packages For College Students

Cheap spring break packages can be found if you know where to look. The internet, magazines, and flyers pinned to bulletin boards around campus are a great place to start. As with most vacations, research is the key to finding the best deals.

The internet is often your best choice when it comes to finding the best spring break trips. Their are many packages out there, so let’s start with the basics.

1) What is my per person price limit? Get together with your friends and agree on a max. per person price you are willing to pay for your spring break vacation. This will eliminate many options right from the start. Don’t forget to factor in spending money while your there. Many students make the mistake of not adding their food allowance and general spending money into the max. price and find that they are broke half way through the trip.

2) Pick a destination. Keep in mind that spring break destinations that are far away typically cost more. It goes back to the old saying “cheaper to walk than drive, cheaper to cruise than fly”. While not always the case, this holds true in most cases. College spring break students in California may find that it’s cheaper to fly to Hawaii instead of the Bahamas, while east coasters typically choose the Caribbean if they want to keep cost down. A happy medium is often a cruise package. For example, students can cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to the Bahamas for a fraction of what it cost to fly to the Bahamas. The bad news is that this does not hold true for west coast students cruising to Hawaii. This is largely due to the fact that the Bahamas not very far off the coast of Florida. California to Hawaii is a much greater distance which means more fuel and in turn higher cost. Depending on the package, it can sometimes be cheaper to fly from California to Florida and take a ship to the Bahamas.

3) Decide on what type of package you want. Does everyone want to drive to a spring break destination, cruise, or fly? Do they want an all-inclusive package that includes airfare/cruise ticket, hotel accommodations, food, drinks, club entry, etc…? Would they prefer a semi-inclusive package that includes only airfare/cruise ticket and hotel accommodations? Most college spring break students prefer an all-inclusive package. They don’t want to worry about how much they will need while on the trip, however, they are typically turned off by the high price of full all-inclusive packages. It’s very important to keep in mind that each person can often spend as much or more if they buy food, drinks, and everything else separately. If your group plans on eating at fancy restaurants and hitting the clubs every night, it may be wiser to pay for everything up front and go with an all-inclusive plan. If everyone has decided to eat at fast food restaurants(not recommended) the whole time then the …
