TIP O' THE WEEK   
----------------  

Students-Spring and Summer Breaks

Legitimate or Not? - There are several companies that target 
campuses all over the United States, from high schools offer-
ing senior grad packages to college spring breaks. Some 
companies are legitimate, some are not. Here are some tips 
to help make that much anticipated trip your dream vacation...

* Choose your location wisely. Make sure you won't be 
vacationing in land mines, on toxic beaches, storm damaged 
areas, or in some vast wasteland.

* How long has the company you are choosing to purchase your 
package from been in business? Check recommendations if you 
can. How are the accommodations? Is it a chartered flight or 
major airline? Meals provided? What is the food like? By all 
means, check the National Travelers Association or Better 
Business Bureau for filed complaints. 

* What exactly will you get for your money? Don't just look 
at that colorful brochure and 'general information' insert. 
Ask for the exact contract you will be signing and scour the 
details. Look for hidden costs like late processing fees and 
hotel security deposits. There will be some! 

* Ask if there is lost baggage insurance provided by the 
vendor? Are there 'Travel Delay' reimbursements? Emergency 
medical coverage? How much is included? Does this include 
dental? How much medical transportation coverage? Are there 
24-hour assistance services? 

* Check your local and national newspapers for reports on 
the area you will be traveling to. Look for civil unrest, 
government and monetary issues, travelers' warnings and 
alerts, and storm watches. Make sure the deposit or portion 
of the paid trip is fully refundable under these conditions. 

* Make sure you know your deadlines on payments and cancel-
lation policies. Some companies offer cancellation insurance. 
It is worth it! 

* Factor in all taxes for both arriving the country and 
departing. Certain governments change fees on a 'whim'. 

* Try to place all travel transactions on a credit card. If 
there are disputes, a credit card company will go after the 
vendor for the recovery of fees you have paid. If you don't 
have a credit card available, think twice. It is far better 
to have family or friends book the trip for you, than the 
potential of a defunct company with your money! 

* Traveling abroad? Check the exchange rate before you leave. 
Then shop your exchange rate both here and abroad. Each 
foreign exchange is like a bank and rates and fees may vary. 
Passports will be required in other countries. You can find 
information on-line and a downloadable application at 
http://travel.state.gov/passport_services.html 

* Leaving the country on Party Plane USA ... have all manda-
tory paperwork in order. Insurance policies, travelers' 
insurance, notarized letters from your parents or guardians 
(only if under 18), passport, visas, contact numbers at your 
destination, contact numbers to be provided in case of 
emergency i.e., family members, neighbors, politicians (no 
joke). 

* Stop in to your destination's consulate. Know where the 
American consulate and embassy are in the foreign country 
of choice!
