Reading Week 2011: Fantastic Student Travel Deals

January 18, 2011

Hopefully you already know what your Reading Week budget is going to be this year and you’ve started to make plans with friends that will keep you within that budget.

There are dozens of options for Reading Week destinations depending on how long you have and how far you want to go. Interested in one of these hot spots?

These destinations and more are available at student prices.

If skiing or snowboarding is more your idea of a good time, talk to a student travel specialist at Travel CUTS about fares to Whistler or wherever you like to play in the powder.

Vacation may have just ended, but that doesn’t mean you should put off planning your next one.


Take a Reading Week Trip to the Beach

October 26, 2010

Ok, you’ve got about 15 weeks until Reading Week in February. That gives you 15 weeks to save up, or talk someone else into sending you somewhere.

If you have a job, decide how much of your earnings you can save. $100 a week? That’s enough to get you way south for the winter, to a nice sunny beach on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Or can you save $50 a week and have your family match your savings? It can’t hurt to ask, and they might admire your dedication and ability to plan ahead.

At the very least, maybe you’ll get a new swimsuit for Christmas.

Check out some Reading Week deals from Travel CUTS.


There’s Still Time to Book for Reading Week 2010

February 10, 2010

Are you still thinking about if or where you should go for Reading Week? It’s ok if you haven’t planned anything yet because there are still some great last-minute deals available.

Assuming you’d like to get out of the snow and into some sand, consider a trip to Mexico, the Dominican Republic or Cuba. You can get return air and accommodation starting at just $707!

Depending on your destination, some trips may also include breakfast and lunch, drinks, nightly entertainment and daytime activities like scuba. Reading during Reading Week is optional, but encouraged.

Because time is running short, you might tempted to grab a deal that seem too good to be true. Booking with a company you’ve never heard of could be a good way to spend some money and get nothing in return. Don’t get stranded in an airport or left at a motel that doesn’t look anything like what you were promised.

Book your trip with a trusted name in student travel, (like, say, Travel CUTS) and know that you have the support and customer service of a trained student travel agency behind you.

Take a look at some top Reading Week destinations, then call or visit a CUTS office near you.
