    Students Plan to Travel for Spring Break Despite Current Economy
    A survey conducted by STA Travel -- one of the largest student and youth travel organization in the world -- found that 78 percent of student travelers are still planning on a Spring Break rip this year, despite the current economy.



    According to the survey, students are still planning to go on Spring Break, but the destinations this year will be closer to home with an estimated budget of between $500 and $1,000. The preferred locations remain traditional domestic Spring Break locales like the Bahamas, South Padre Island and Mexico, with only 15 percent saying they would make the trek to Europe.

    "We aren't surprised that students are still planning to travel," said Kristen Celko, vice president of marketing and e-commerce at STA Travel. "The popular locations may be closer to home and the budget less than in previous years, but Spring Break is a tradition and students are learning to become savvier with their money."

    The STA e-mail survey was distributed to more than 10,000 student travelers who have taken a trip in the past year.

    Panama City Beach is on tap to be the largest spring break destination this year, with a LOT of bookings for this year, especially that MTV is taping there. But make NO mistake about it, there will be a LOT of people still in cancun for spring break!!!!!!!!!!
