TRAVEL EXPERT SHARES TOP SAFETY TIPS TO MAKE THIS YEAR'S SPRING BREAK MEMORABLE
It's almost time to shake off the cold temperatures and escape the daily grind with an exciting spring break getaway. And when you think Spring Break, you think Mexico! While it’s a time to relax and have fun, safety concerns are a reality and it's important to travel smart. To do so, we must consider the destination. Recently, the U.S. State Department introduced a new system for alerting Americans about possible security risks while traveling abroad. It is important to keep these in mind when planning a getaway. Lucky for all spring breakers, there are many beautiful destinations in Mexico that have been explicitly listed as having no travel restrictions.
Travel expert, Julie Loffredi, shares her top spring break travel safety tips. From where to go, how to book and things to keep in mind when you’re there, she’s got you covered. So, whether you’re headed to Riviera Maya with your college classmates or Tulum with the family, you’ll be able to kick off your flip flops and soak up the sun worry-free.
Some of Julie’s tips include:
Plan wisely: Check the U.S. State Department’s risk level classifications of the destination you plan on visiting before booking your trip. Pack at least two forms of ID. Keep one with you and one in the hotel safe. Book in bundle: Purchase vacation packages through a reputable, reliable, and trusted company. You’ll get more value by packaging airfare, hotels and transfers into one great price! Know your surroundings: Familiarize yourself with the resort. Know where the security and information desks, and when you’re in town or exploring, best not to stray too far from the beaten path. Use common sense: As you would when you’re in an unfamiliar place, exercise plenty of caution. Ask your concierge for restaurant recommendations or a trusted travel advisor for any fun and safe activity ideas.
