Spending money: The amount of spending money varies based on the person. This is an all-inclusive holiday so all meals, snacks, and drinks are covered in the cost of the trip.
Passengers can pre-pay for excursions on their online profile up to 2 weeks prior to the trip departure.
Extra money would be required for the departure tax (if applicable), room damage deposit, souvenirs, extra sunscreen, or any snacks they might want to get at the airport (or from the resort store) along with snacks/drinks purchased on excursions or off resort activities.
We do not recommend pre-paid credit cards as they do not always work. Debit cards with 4 digit pin numbers will usually work but ATM's may be sparse.
It is best to bring cash on your trip and pre pay for excursions.
Wifi: The availability of wifi depends on your destination and there may also be a small fee for the week. For the most up to date information, please visit the Resorts website for cost information. Feel free to contact us if you are not able to find the price.
Baggage: The baggage fee and baggage restriction information is usually on your E-ticket. This information is also available on the airlines website under Baggage allowance.
Tipping: Please note that although tipping at an all inclusive resort is not mandatory (and you should only tip if YOU want to) you may find that it helps you during your stay. If you received great service from a server, bell hop, chamber maid, driver, or anyone else, a couple of dollars in appreciation will be remembered and you may find your towels a bit fluffier, your room cleaned a bit earlier, and things going a bit smoother.
In many of the Caribbean destinations, hotel staff also appreciate gifts from Canada/US. Items such as kids toys, school supplies, feminine hygiene products, Canadian or American souvenirs, and/or clothing are often appreciated as some of these items are either very expensive or unavailable for purchase locally.
Generally students tip about $1-$2 USD for each service. Hotel maids are often tipped $2 per day per person. Tipping is at the discretion of the student and given for exceptional service.
Safes: Safes are available in every room on our trips for a cost from about $10-$20 USD per week. Safes are optional but highly recommended.
Keep in mind passengers are responsible for their own passports for the duration of the trip.
Clinic Visits & Medical Expenses: All travelers are covered under the included Classic Youth Medical Travel Plan, however travelers need to pay for their medical expenses upfront. You will need to complete the insurance claim to be reimbursed through the insurance company upon your return for all medical associated costs including, but not limited to: medication, treatment, medical examination, and transportation to and from the clinic and/or hospital.
