Spring is just around the corner, and college students everywhere are gearing up for the annual week-long party that is Spring Break.  Despite the slowing economy, many students still have plans to travel, and many popular destinations are offering great last-minute deals.

For example, Boncherry.com has a great post up that gives suggestions for popular Spring Break destinations, including Cancun and Acapulco in Mexico, Ibiza in Europe, Nassau and Jamaica.

Over at TripSay.com’s blog, there is an excellent list of the top 10 Spring Break destinations, along with the 5 worst places to go. Naussau, in the Bahamas, is listed as one of the top 5 party destinations, while Montego Bay, Jamaica and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico are two of the “Spring Break Rising Stars.”  Not into the stereotypical “beach vacation?” Whistler, Canada is another up-and-coming destination. TripSay recommends that you stay away from  Fargo, ND and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. No arguments there!

Remember, if you’re planning a Spring Break adventure in another country, it’s a good idea to pack your passport. If you’re going to Mexico, Canada, or the Caribbean, you’ll need a passport if you’re traveling by air. If you’re traveling by land or sea, you may be able to get by with just your birth certificate and government-issued photo ID (at least until June 1, 2009). However, it’s best to bring your passport, anyway,  in case you have an emergency and need to catch a flight home.

To get a passport before Spring Break,  request expedited passport service. The easiest and fastest way to get an expedited passport is to use a private passport expediting company. An expediting company will submit your expedited passport application directly to the US Passport Agency for faster processing, so you’ll have it in time for Spring Break.
