As a college student, you’re busy every day with classes, studying and working. After booking your college trip or spring break vacation, you go back to getting everything done every day. However, as the time to leave grows closer, there are things that you need to get done to make your trip a dream come true and as relaxed as possible. Here are some things that should top your to-do list.
If this is your first trip out of the country, then odds are you don’t already have a passport. When you’re applying for your first passport, it takes a little longer and you’ll need a variety of documents, such as your birth certificate. Applying for a passport is straightforward and can be done at your local post office and possibly at a location on campus. Depending on the time of year, it can take eight to 10 weeks to get a passport, so we suggest starting this as soon as possible.
Regardless of where you’re headed, you’re going to want to spend your days on the beach and your evenings partying. At Go Blue Tours, we offer unique party packages for each of our locations. These packages give you access to the hottest clubs and an open bar at each one. It’s a great way to know exactly how much you’ll need to budget for your nightlife.
Depending on the time of year, ensuring that you’ve got the warm weather clothing you need can require placing orders online. You need to take some time a month or so before leaving to see if you need to order a new swimsuit, dresses, shorts or other summer items. You don’t want to be the person knocking sand out of your tennis shoes, because you weren’t able to find flip-flops before leaving.
