Spring Break is getting into full swing. Cancun, Miami and Montego Bay are going to be packed with 18-34-year-olds partying non-stop on a beach with hundreds, even thousands, of other people. 53% of millennials are planning on going on vacation this Spring Break according to Travel Central, two million of which are college students taking a break from studying.
Spring Break Inspiration
If you're part of the other 47%, this might not be your kind of thing. That doesn’t mean you have to sit at college or home with a serious case of FOMO. In fact, there are plenty of reasons why you should make the most of your Spring Break and travel somewhere exciting.
The best part? You can do it at a discount! There are loads of cheap Spring Break deals on TransferTravel.com right now. When you buy second-hand travel bookings, you can get last minute travel plans at the same price you would have paid months ago. On top of that, you’re buying someone else’s non-refundable Spring Break plans that they can’t use anymore.
Get some Spring Break inspiration and read our top six ways to make the most of your vacation time this year:
1. Tech Detox
We all spend a lot of our downtime with technology. Did you know that most Americans spend 4.7 hours a day on their cell phone? There is more and more scientific research showing the importance of taking time away from your phone and computer screens. For instance, your sleep pattern is disrupted when you use your phone in the hour before bed because the blue backlight stops the production of melatonin, which is the sleep hormone.
Take the time to detox from your technology and ignore the notifications. Leave your laptop at home, turn your phone off and spend a few nights in a beach paradise. Your body and your brain will thank you for it.
2. Embrace Spontaneous Travel
Spring Break is approaching, and you might not have plans yet. Spontaneity is something we always cheer for as we believe it opens up a world of opportunities you might have never considered before.
You don't have to be well-off or not working in order to take full advantage of last-minute vacation. Second-hand tickets allow you to pick the vacation you like with only a few weeks to go, but you don’t have to pay the hefty price tag. This also means you don’t need to plan months in advance when things are more likely to go wrong in between booking and going.
3. Luxury on a Budget
Not all of us can afford to live it up in penthouse suites for a weekend before jetting off to stay in another equally glamorous penthouse suite.
However, that doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice luxury when you’re travelling. In fact, over $1.1 billion is expected to be spent on luxury travel by 2022.
Buying second-hand hotel rooms from TransferTravel.com means that you can get a gorgeous room at the last minute at the price you’d pay for a cheaper hotel.
4. Try Out Unique Accommodation
If you’re bored of the usual hotel rooms and beach houses, then you should branch out and find somewhere cool to stay this Spring Break. There are so many quirky accommodation options out there now from canal boats to tree houses to igloos (seriously). Whether you’re looking for somewhere awesome to base yourself when you’re partying with your friends, or just want to treat you and your partner to a chilled getaway, use your imagination.
5. Finally Take That Dream Vacation
You are always putting off that trip to Paris or Rome that you’ve been speaking about for months, if not years. Why not surprise your family with flights to one of the great European cities this Spring, or gather a group of your closest friends to begin your European adventure? It’s just before the peak season so you’ll have plenty of time and space to experience some of the greatest sights in the world. Plus, if you can do it all at a discount, there’s really no excuse to stay in your dorm room.
6. Give the Traditional Spring Break Experience A Go
Okay, this might not be a legitimate reason but bear with us here. Spring Break is often synonymous with binge-drinking, no sleep and messy half-memories, but it doesn’t have to be. You can still go to the beach and the pool and the parties whilst avoiding the parts of Spring Break that don’t appeal to you.
We think that Spring Break is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that a lot of people are glad to have so if you’re curious, why not try it out? If you buy a discounted vacation, flight or hotel room from us, it also means that you haven’t spent lots of your hard-earned dollars on a vacation you’re not 100% sure you’ll love.
