Booking a Student Holiday
Travelling while you are a student is a great idea. With no work or family responsibilities you are free to travel more easily than when you are older. We’re here to help with some helpful tips to help you book your holiday.
There are a lot of options available to anyone wanting to travel while they are a student. Your local travel agent will have many packages and will be more convenient than doing it yourself. But this will usually be at a higher price then if you do-it-yourself online. We suggest taking out some time to search the Internet for great deals.
Remember before setting off on any holiday to be prepared for emergencies. Make sure you have travel or holiday insurance as this will cover you in the event of something unfortunate happening like theft, loss or damage to your personal belongings or even injury. If you are not covered it could be quite expensive if you have to pay out of your own pocket.
Always carry hard copies of all your travel documents and details at all times on your trip. You are not always guaranteed to have access to the Internet while travelling, so pulling up a confirmation email or a booking number might not be viable option. Also, carry a copy of your contact information in case you get lost, stuck or something goes wrong.
Travel light! First time travellers often make the mistake of taking too much luggage with them. Taking too much with you can not only be irritating, but you could also be charged extra by some airlines and taxis. This means you not only save yourself the effort of lugging heavy bags around, you also save some money. Our tip is: buy what you need when you get there.
The Internet is the best place to find great cheap student holiday. Also be sure to check out different places to stay rather than just
hostels and hotels. You can find some great last-minute deals on apartment and timeshare rentals, which can be great if you are traveling with a group.
Remember to try not to travel around the time of holidays in your country and the destination you are on holiday in. Travelling is not only busier but will most likely be more expensive!
When taking longer breaks or even a gap year, currency exchange can become a significant factor to consider. Be sure to weigh up all the options in order to get not only the best rates, but also the least commission. Remember that the same rules apply if you need to do currency transfers from your account back home to the country in which you’re travelling. In short; do your homework and don’t get stung by poor exchange rates or hidden fees.
Remember, being a student is an amazing experience and is also the perfect time of your life to travel. So with a little bit of planning, you can make it a great experience!
