BreakSmart is designed to educate students to make smart decisions before, during, and after their travel experience. BreakSmart guidelines are provided to students before travel and are reiterated during their Welcome Orientation and in the arrival packets, they receive at their destination.

In order to provide the Ultimate Travel Experience, GradCity staff makes it their mission to promote safety and ensure everyone has the time of their life. From the moment our students get off their plane, GradCity staff is there to greet them and coordinate their staff-assisted transfer to the hotel. Our hotel staff then provides an orientation, which covers the “ins and outs” and the “do’s and donts” for the week. During their orientation, each traveler is also given a GradCity wristband that identifies them as a GradCity traveler, and provides a printed 24-hour emergency phone number. In the event a traveler experiences an emergency and is not directly near a staff member, he or she will have the emergency phone number printed on their wristband for easy access. As GradCity has been operating trips in all of our destinations for many years, we are able to maintain great relationships with our hotels and vendors, allowing us to work together to provide the best experience for our travelers. All of our night events are fully staffed by GradCity staff members, as well as the establishment’s staff members. In addition, any event that is coordinated by GradCity will have staff members present at all times, from start to finish, whether it is a beach party during the day, a themed event at night, or an excursion.
As the leading student tour operator, GradCity offers the highest staff-to-student ratio in the industry, with one professional staff member for every 30 travelers
