Give the Gift of Travel!

By shightower


It’s graduation time!

Before immersing yourself in your new gig or to show your congratulations to graduates for all of their hard work, present yourself or graduates with the gift of travel.  The top post-graduation getaways enjoyed by students according to airlines, hotels, and tourism departments are hot spots within the Caribbean.

Jamaica for example, ranks high amongst graduates for its beautifully warm days, fun activity offerings, and generally affordable airfare and accommodations.  Days spent poolside catching a vibe or swimming along white sand beaches can be very kind to the wallet.  Afterwards, enjoy delicious island fare like conch fritters and rice and peas mounded high on your plate for a mere few dollars or scrumptious yet inexpensive beef patties and fresh mangoes picked yourself from mango trees.

Or if the budget allows, consider gifting yourself or graduates with a European travel ticket. These rank second among graduate favorites.

France specifically remains a top choice among graduates and their parent and mentor gifters. Paris in the springtime is an iconic, traditional location for graduates to tour as the city boasts such must-sees as the Palace of Versailles and the Louvre.  Getting lots of culture in while sunbathing in the South of France and touring the legendary Parisian gardens are must-dos that the graduate will appreciate, as well as being able to discuss with co-workers during downtime at the water cooler at the forthcoming, new corporate position.
