5 Travel Tips For Brock University Students

Travelling this summer? Here are 5 tips for Brock University students with plans to take in some sights before September semester starts.

There is never a better time to travel than when you’re a student. With no kids, no mortgage, and no job, you have few commitments to worry about. Getting to live with new cultures and see different parts of the world is an amazing and enlightening experience.

Yet, traveling as a university student can be a challenge, so here are five tips to make traveling easier.

Travel in Groups

Traveling with a group of friends is much cheaper than traveling alone. For example, large dorm-style rooms are more affordable than smaller rooms at most hotels.

If your friends aren’t up to traveling with you, that’s okay. Student travel agencies allow you to travel in a group at affordable prices. They present students with the cheapest flight options, arrange tours, and much more.

ContikiEF College Break, and Topdeck are specialized in youth travel and can give you an exciting travel adventure.

Less Is More – Pack Lightly

Packing lightly has its benefits. It saves you from paying baggage fees and waiting at the baggage carousel. It is also liberating; it lets you get around much easier.

Many people struggle to pack lightly, but don’t worry, travel experts have shared their packing secrets with Tortuga Backpacks.

Befriend the Locals

Talking to locals gives you deeper insights into the culture of the country you are visiting.

Also, locals can tell you where all the good sites are and will be excited to show you. Tourists usually go to specific sites, but rarely are they able to experience the culture from a local’s view. 

Volunteer

Volunteering is one of the many travel opportunities for students. You can experience a different culture and help improve lives around the world.

Erasmus and Youth in Action are just two of the many organizations you can volunteer for.

Travel as Education

Traveling is a way to learn new things. You can learn different languages (or at least a few words), different ways of life, history, and new skills.

There are some things that can only be learned by scuba diving in the Caribbean and hiking in the Himalayas. 

Brock University students can and should open their minds by experiencing different cultures even if they’re on a budget. It’s as Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.”
