It’s never too early to start planning for a dope Spring Break trip. That being said, we know it can be daunting and an intimidating task to take on, especially if you’re planning your first Spring Break trip.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran when it comes to planning vacations, or have never traveled further than your state borders before, we’ve got you covered with our tips on how to plan the best Spring Break trip ever!

1) Nail down the experience you’re looking for

Let’s not beat around the bush…there’s a 98% chance that if you’re reading this blog, you’re looking to have the craziest week of your life while partying with your closest friends, and that’s exactly what we are going to give you. Cancun, Nassau, and Panama City Beach are all known for their daytime beach and pool parties, not to mention; the nightlife is just as, if not more insane! With StudentCity you have the option to add an additional Party Package to your trip, which gives you special perks such as free cover, express entry, and open bar/drink specials (depending on the destination). We will set you up at our Headquarters Hotel in whatever destination you choose, and you’ll be staying in the heat of it all.

Not looking for a ’round-the-clock raging party scene? Maybe you want to relax during the day and work on your tan, and then tear it up at night at some of our favorite Spring Break clubs. We got you! We can set you up at a more low-key resort for the daytime experience you’re looking for, and then you’ll be using that Party Package at night to take care of all that bottled up energy.

Not at all interested in the party scene? Freeport, Bahamas our Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is your perfect spot. Call us up and our Spring Break professionals over here will set you up with exactly what you’re looking for.

2) Figure out your budget

Your budget will play a role in what Spring Break destination, hotel, and accommodations you choose. For example, when travelling internationally we recommend staying at an all-inclusive resort, but if your budget is a little tight, we can set you up with a standard hotel or a semi all-inclusive resort. If you’re travelling to one of our destinations in the United States, such as Panama City Beach or South Padre Island, the initial cost of the trip will be less up front, but you will be spending money on food once you get there. We’re here to help you out and to work with your budget to give you the best experience possible for what you’re looking for.

Did you know? StudentCity has individual payment plans for every traveler, allowing you to budget out your money and pay for your trip over the span of a few months. When booking with a company such as Orbitz or Expedia, you will have to pay for your trip up front, all at once, on one person’s credit card.

3) Start early

Think you’re aggressive for starting to think about Spring Break months in advance? Think again! The early bird gets the worm when it comes to planning the best Spring Break trip. When you book early you get the best, lowest rates on your flight and hotel, and special offers on things like Party Packages and excursions. Prices simply can’t be beat when you start planning early.
