Spring Break Travel Tips

10 tips to check off your list when planning your Spring Break travels

Leaving Town for Spring Break?

Your flight is booked and your hotel is waiting. Now all you need to do is get there, and we’re here to help. Below we share our 10 quick tips for smooth spring break travel!

Leaving Town for Spring Break?

1. Search stealthily:

Whichever browser you use, always search for flights on incognito or private browsing mode to ensure the prices don’t surge due to the increased search activity. Tell your friends to do the same!

2. Get alerted:

Set email alerts on Google Flights or SkyScanner to be alerted when the prices of the flights you’re tracking drop by a significant amount.

3. Check the weather:

Whether you’re planning a beach vacation or a ski getaway, make sure to check the forecast for your destination so you can pack accordingly.

4. Plan outfits

Make a checklist and mark a box for each day/night you’re there to make sure you pack the right amount. Take pictures of each outfit to be able to reference when you get there.

5. Get discounts

Check Groupon’s or LivingSocial’s international websites to find great deals on local tourist attractions and niche activities.

6. Download entertainment:

You never know if/when there will be access to WiFi or data. Make sure you download all your movies/shows/books before you take off to ensure you and the kids stay entertained while traveling and in case you experience any delays!

7. Pack snacks:

If you’re like us, you avoid hunger at all costs. Be sure to pack some snacks to bring with you on those long travel/sightseeing days.

8. Stay hydrated:

Don’t get stuck tossing and re-buying plastic water bottles during your trip: pack a good stainless-steel bottle that you can refill between flights and keep you hydrated throughout your travels.

9. Keep clean:

Pack hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes in your carry-on bag to wipe down seats and trays on your flights and to stay clean wherever your trip takes you!

10. Plan your travel money:

Make sure you have cash or a travel money card on hand before you travel by choosing home delivery or in-store pickup when you order online.
