• Spring break: How not to break the bank

    2011-01-25

    Spring break is coming upon antsy college students, who are eager to make their travels to their destination of choice. Vacationing as a full-time student can be quite expensive, and AOL's Wallet Pop blog has a few money-saving tips for those who are still in the planning stages.

    While many people choose to visit tropical locales on their spring break, the news source suggests an exciting camping trip with a bunch of friends. Spending a week outdoors with your closest pals is an interesting change of scenery compared to dorm living, and you can go hiking, biking and enjoy other outdoors activities at no extra cost.

    Forego the flight in favor of a road trip. Although it may take longer, it can be a fun experience that is also cost-effective. Everyone can split the cost of gas, which will likely turn out to be less than a round-trip flight, and there will be plenty of interesting sights to see along the way.

    When making a packing list before your trip, make sure to include your student identification card. It might seem like a useless addition to your wallet, but there are plenty of venues around the country, and the world, that offer discounts for college attendees.
