Are you a student about to go on spring break? I remember when I was in University, I would always look for cheap getaways. Since the spring break is this month, here are some spring break tips to save you some moula:
This can be a great way to spend spring break if you like the outdoors. There are so many wonderful pitching locations and the costs are truly affordable. One week in a multi-person tent can be an unforgettable experience!
2. Be Smart With Your Choices
You can have a great time without actually spending a fortune. As long as you are with your friends, it doesn’t really matter where you are and how you got there. That is why you should truly shop around before you buy a plane ticket or choose a vacation destination. You don’t need to necessarily leave the country to have fun.
3. Buy Drinks Locally
Drinks account for a major part of vacation costs, simply because they are so much more expensive in touristic destinations. Of course bars are a great attraction for students, but they don’t need to overdue it. Getting local drinks is a great way to save money during the spring break vacation.
The spring break is the time to have fun and explore new things, and meet new people. It is definitely not the time to admire the hotel room. So why pay for a hotel room when a hostel will save you up to 75%? You can always use that money for something a lot more useful than just sleeping.
5. Student Prices For Flights
There are many sites where college goers can find student-priced flights. This is a good way to save some serious money and still enjoy your spring break.
6. Take The Road
A group of friends can have the time of their lives on a road trip. With some good music and great company, you will can enjoy a great vacation without spending a fortune. Plus, travelling by land is a great way to check out the sights.
7. Take A Bike Instead Of Cab
When you are in a new location, you may be tempted to take the cab every time you need to get somewhere. As cabs cost money, you should consider saving the money you spend on cabs and a bike it instead. Besides, it’s great exercise.
8. Student Discounts
Wherever you plan to go, there are discounts available for students. Museums, theatres and so many other places have special prices for students. So don’t forget to bring your student ID. You will be amazed on how much you can save if you simply ask about student discounts before you actually pay.
9. Grocery Store: Your Best Ally
Eating has never been cheap. Eating out on vacation, when you don’t know the best places, is definitely not going to be cheap. What you can do is stop by the grocery store as soon as you arrive and get your supply of groceries and dry items to cover at least one meal every day. You will save a lot of money.
10. Low Flying Traffic Days
There are certain days of the week when airlines have special prices. They are referred to as low flying traffic days, days off, or times off. You can check online to find the best days and times to fly so that you will pay the lowest rates. It may not be the perfect schedule, but it does save you money.
