Spring Break Packages - Top Trips For 2009

Aug 27, 2008
Spring break packages come in all shapes and sizes. Some trips include hotel only, others include transportation and accommodations. Finding the perfect match for your needs(and the needs of your group) can be challenging. I've outlined a few key points that may steer you in the right direction.

First, decide if you want an all-inclusive package. This will eliminate many options from the start. Most spring break trips are not true all inclusive. Only packages that include everything, and I do mean everything, would fall into this category. It must include transportation, hotel accommodations, and food at the hotel. If it doesn't, then it's not a true all-inclusive package.

Second, have everyone in your group decide on a maximum per person price they are willing to spend on their spring break vacation. This will narrow your options down ever further. If everyone in your group can spend one thousand dollars per person then you may want to consider Cancun, Acapulco, or Jamaica. Spring break trips that include those three destinations rarely fall below the one thousand dollar mark. If they do, then your most likely in a very bad area or in a very low quality hotel. The Bahamas, Myrtle Beach, Daytona Beach, and other domestic spring break packages start around the three hundred dollar mark per person. You will notice that I included the Bahamas in that list. I did that because you can find great spring break cruises to the bahamas for $350 per person. That price often includes transportation and accommodations for four nights. The cruise is only seven hours off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. It's a great way to experience tropical waters and a beautiful island for a very low price.

Third, don't make quick impulsive decisions. This seems like an obvious point, but you would be surprised at how many college students book the first spring break trip they come across on the internet. It really pays to spend some quality time researching. Weigh all your options before you commit to one spring break package. Don't be stuck with a non-refundable deposit you can't get out of.

Last, look for great incentives. Some spring break packages include free summer trips if you book with one particular agency. They will also usually offer group discounts or cash back if you have 12 or more people traveling with you. It's important to note that only one person should book the trip for the entire group. Student groups often receive incorrect information from their group leader. This can lead to date and accommodation errors if more than one person communicates with the travel agent.

The key is to get started early for spring break 2009. Most packages are sold out by October 15th each year. Yes, that is six months in advance. Only New Years packages sell out quicker. If you wait to long to decide you will most likely be stuck with the hotel or destination that nobody wanted. Plan early, research early, and talk to your friends.

Make spring break 2009 the best ever!
