4 Travel Tips to Plan & Enjoy A Last-Minute Spring Break Trip

By Erica Cowin

Spring break is right around the corner, and you need a last-minute trip in your life. Good news for you, it’s not too late to plan a spring break trip to a popular destination of your choice with RCI. Besides, sometimes a little spontaneity can lead to some amazing memories! With a little prep and a few key essentials, you could be soaking in the vacation vibes before you know it. Whisk away to your favorite destination in a snap with these four simple travel tips to help you plan and enjoy your spring break trip.

1. Plan A Safe & Healthy Spring Break Trip

Whether you’re after the quintessential spring break beach town of Myrtle Beach, eager to try your hand at a casino in the bustling city of Las Vegas, or prefer attractions of every type in Orlando, RCI has got you covered. Just make sure you stay safe. Plan ahead by checking local regulations in the city or town you’re visiting, such as City of Orlando’s COVID-19 Information, Myrtle Beach Healthy Travel Information, and the Visit Las Vegas Vegas Smart website. Don’t forget to monitor weather and waves, and download apps such as Waze to make the most out of navigating traffic as you explore your new city.

2. Do A Little Itinerary Pre-Planning

Purchase tickets for popular attractions in advance — but also leave free time for fun! Booking before you arrive allows you to pick your ideal days to attend certain attractions and take part in the adventures you want at a time that works for you. While even last-minute trips can benefit from some pre-planning, always leave room for spontaneity. Who knows, heading out on an adventure to a new attraction or local restaurant could lead to some really incredible travel insights and amazing new memories you didn’t even see coming.

3. Clear Out The Old To Shop For The New

Spring is a solid season for “out with the old, in with the new.” If you’ve got spring cleaning already on the agenda at home, why not sell some pieces to free up those funds for some great finds while on your spring break trip. When you arrive at your destination, hit the local shopping scene the smart way. From Orlando’s amazing outlet malls to Myrtle Beach’s outdoor shopping centers, malls, and downtown shopping district, there’s always something more to add to your ensemble. To shop like a savvy spring breaker, consider packing an empty duffle bag in your suitcase to fill with your treasures. Some merchants will even ship your spring break finds home for you free of charge, just ask!

4. Silence Your Tech During Your Vacation

In a 24/7 world, you are constantly bombarded by emails, texts, and the needs and demands of others in your daily life. Sometimes it can be hard to shut off and unplug physically and mentally. All the more reason to book that last-minute trip, and soak in the serenity you’ve been seeking. Once you commit to the trip, set your out-of-office reminder, silence the school-room chatter among committees or groups, and utilize airplane mode or Do Not Disturb settings to be present for every moment. Then when you’re on your spring break trip, all you have to do is slip away and find ultimate tranquility at Orlando’s Wekiwa Springs, or be fully present for those precious family memories poolside in Las Vegas without a second thought about what’s going on behind that inbox.

Whatever style of vacation vibe you are going for, RCI creates unlimited options for adventures of any kind. It's not too late — pick your favorite destination and book your spring break trip now.
