Spring break flights are easy to find. How cheap they are depends on a few things, from how far in advance you book them to where you are going. If you wait until the very last minute, pretty much all aspects of your 2018 spring break vacations are going to come at a premium price. Besides, hotels (and even hostels abroad) fill up quickly later in the game so it is best to do your planning early to get your preferred choice of lodging as well. Spring break airline tickets can be found for outlandishly cheap prices if you book them in early January. Many times flights to perennial spring break hotspots such as Miami and Daytona Beach go for as low as $150 when booked early and with a student ID. This leaves quite a lot of budget free to plot the rest of your week.
All inclusive hotels and cruises are other options for getting the most bang for your buck. As you consider spring break vacations, it’s nice to know that all of your meals are covered and many students fall in love merely at the sound of two simple and yet profound words, “open bar.” You can find a cheap 2018 spring break flight or cruise pretty easily at the local campus travel agency that offers student discounts and deals.
If you’ve already picked where you are heading this year then you may be surveying your options for spring break flights and accommodations. Price is not the only reason to try to book your reservations as far in advance as you can. The closer you get to that hallowed time of year the more the availability of spring break airline tickets decreases. You definitely do not want to be one of the countless students who can recount horror stories of getting stuck for a full two days at an overcrowded airport because of being bumped from a standby flight when they should be shoulder deep in bubbles in a four-story nightclub in Acapulco. Sometimes you can’t win, but what you can do is get to planning right now while you still have time to find spring break airline tickets that will not break the bank.
Not everyone opts for the beach vacation. Lots of students go international and head to places such as London, Paris, or even the European party capital of Ibiza over break. Around this time of year the same student travel agencies that offer discounts for spring break travel domestically, offer incentives for international travel. A couple months prior to spring break you can find amazing rates on spring break vacations to Europe. Imagine spring break flights that cost less than $500 and include accommodations at clean and comfortable hostels. This is just one more thing to consider as you decide where to head for spring break this year.
Without a doubt, the most popular spring break vacations remain the beach hotspots like Puerto Vallarta, South Beach, and Panama City. These gorgeous beaches are a swarm of fit twenty-something’s for a full week of relative chaos and fun. The party never ends for a straight week and the clubs and beaches are alive with music, drinking, and excitement. Make your plans as soon as possible to get the best rates and to be sure not to get stuck in the terminal.
