Budgeting for Your Trip
Your senior trip is an exciting and memorable experience that you’ll cherish for years to come. At GradCity, we want to make sure that you have the best time possible without breaking the bank. That’s why the cost of your trip already includes round transportation, all-inclusive dining, hotel accommodations, ground transfers from the airport, access to GradCity’s exclusive on-site events, and 24/7 help from our staff.
Here are some tips to save up for your trip:
- Get a part-time job – Earning extra money by working part-time can be a great way to save up for your senior trip. Consider getting a job after school or on the weekends to boost your savings.
- Cut back on expenses – Take a look at your monthly expenses and see if there are any areas where you can cut back. Skipping your morning latte or packing your lunch instead of eating out can save you a lot of money in the long run and help you save up for the senior trip of your dreams!
- Ask for contributions – Instead of traditional birthday or holiday gifts, consider asking your friends and family to contribute to your senior trip fund. Every little bit helps!
The best part is that if you start planning your trip early, the moment you step into your trip, everything will already be paid for!
