Make Spring Break a Big Party—with a Charter Bus from BusRental.com
Classes are starting to wear you down and the weather’s not helping. All you can think of is a week of fun on a beach somewhere, or just about any place where it’s warm. Whether you realize it or not, spring break will be here before you know it, so now’s the time to start planning, so that you can make this year’s excursion the best yet. And what better way to do it than with a group of friends? But you don’t want to spend a lot of your time fighting traffic or checking a map. There’s an easier way to go—in a charter bus from BusRental.com. Here are some tips for making this year’s trip great.
Book All Your Reservations Now
Lots of hotels started taking reservations months ago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still find some good deals. You’ll have to spend some time online, and may need to talk with a few places on the phone, but the sooner you start, the more options you’ll have and the less you’ll have to spend. Some useful websites include TripAdvisor and Yelp.
Consider Alternative Lodging
With the expansive listings on vacationrentalbyowner.com and airbnb.com, there’s no need to limit yourself to a hotel or a motel. You may find a private home or vacation property that’s actually cheaper than a hotel, and that offers a more homier feeling, with your own kitchen and other amenities.
Think Outside the Box
Maybe you want to go where everyone else is going—maybe that’s your idea of a great time…and that’s fine. But you’ll probably pay quite a bit extra to go there and you might find your accommodations less than desirable. Instead of Daytona or Fort Lauderdale, you might consider Coronado, an island hideaway off the coast of San Diego. Or, if you really want to go to Florida, thing about Florida’s “Deep North,” along Amelia Island or Little Talbot Island near Jacksonville.
Or, consider taking a totally different type of spring break. Instead of fighting drunken crowds at the beaches, think about participating in a work trip, for such organizations as Habitat for Humanity or other service organizations. If beaches are not your thing, but you love the great outdoors, maybe the Grand Canyon or one of the country’s amazing national parks is a great option.
Be Willing to Travel a Little to Get to the Beach
You’ll spend a lot less money and you’ll probably be safer if you stay a few miles from the beach instead of across A1A. With a charter bus, you won’t have to worry about transportation to and from the water. We’ll get you there in plenty of time to get all the sun and surf you want.
Know What You Want to Do Before You Go
Get your friends together and get input from everyone about what you want to do when you get there. Ask someone to research the options, so that everyone knows what’s available. Then encourage everyone to put together a bucket list. You may be able to book some of your outings before you go, saving you a lot of hassle when you get there.
Know How Much You Are Going to Spend
There a couple of ways to handle this. You can prepare a full-blown budget, with costs of travel, hotels, meals and incidentals. Alternatively, you can pay for accommodations in advance and give yourself a fixed amount to spend while you are there. If you don’t plan, you will likely end up either broke before the end of the week or spending a whole lot more than you planned or can afford.
Take Advantage of Your Smart Phone
With a smart phone, you’ll have just about everything you need in your hands, from maps to restaurant recommendations to a calendar of events. One of the best apps to load is Citymapper. You can also use Tilt to combine dollars from everyone in the group, if you have shared expenses.
