Broke College Students Guide to Spring Break Trips

It’s that time of the year once again… SPRING BREAK. For a lot of college students this could mean a well-deserved break from school troubles, a bad break up, work, or internships. Many are packing up their bags and hopping on the first flight out of the city after their last Midterm. Unfortunately for those of us who are “Spring Broke”, an amazing getaway far, far away may not be in our futures.

BUT… Don’t let limited funds hold you back! Everyone deserves a break after a long semester’s work. Here’s a spring break guide that won’t break your pockets.

Don’t Trip, Road Trip!

The longer you wait, the more airfare prices rise. Don’t get caught up in the fluctuation of prices, just drive. Pack up the car with your crew and hit the road. Fortunately, gas prices are at record-breaking low prices this season, so why not take a trip? If you’re opposed to driving, try the Megabus. They typically have really low prices to places as far as Miami and Washington, DC. The bus may not be ideal, but the Megabus has a cool double-decker and can be pretty spacious.

Stay Close!

You don’t have to go far to have a good time. If you’re not interested in a cross-country road trip to Los Angeles, or the down south drive to Miami, stay close. Places like Blue Ridge, Georgia in North Georgia has beautiful cabins and lakes that would truly appease any nature loving crew. A 3 bedroom cabin could be as cheap as $100 a night. 5 days with a group of 7-10 people, that’s roughly $60 per person. Here are some other enjoyable places to visit that are no more than 6/7 hours away via car.

Ditch the hotels, Airbnb!

Hotels can be pretty annoying with their check-in times, check-out times, rules, and regulations. They basically want your soul in exchange for a bed and a hot shower. Luckily, times are changing and sites like Airbnb are making traveling easier and way more fun. With Airbnb you’re able to rent out places from regular people just like you. They’re typically way more flexible than hotels, and you get to feel like a native in a new city rather than a tourist. Airbnb typically has very sweet hosts that thrive on communication and making sure their guests have the best experiences possible.
