Pack Practically
It is a good idea to pack at least one nice set of clothes for the evening, as
some venues and restaurants have dress codes.
                                                                                 3. RBc insurance card (if applicable - Get your card from your trip leader)

   The luggage bays of motorcoaches, although large, can get filled up pretty
   quickly. We recommend that each passenger only bring 1 suitcase, 1 ski/
   snowboard bag (if applicable), and 1 carry-on bag for a standard 3-night
   bus trip. This will ensure that all passengers will be able to store their
   luggage without any problems.

ID’s being checked, and calls being made to late arriving students. Bring along
something to keep you busy. Delays and changes are common when traveling. Try
to make the best of your travel time and remember that you are only hours away
from getting to your destination and enjoying the trip of a lifetime!

 All S-Trip! passengers will receive a hotel bracelet upon arrival and
 should wear it throughout the week. With thousands of passengers
 in some hotels it is important to be able to quickly identify S-Trip!

 eVenTS BRaCeLeT (eXTRa ChaRge)
 Allows you access to the exclusive events/parties held by S-Trip! These
 bracelets have cash value and will not be replaced if lost or stolen.

 Even though you are on vacation, you are in a different city/province/
 country; so the rules and general customs / courtesies are different.
 When travelling to venues or to participate in excursion activities, it is
 VERY important to stay in groups. Also, before you go anywhere, tell your
                                                                                         Board your bus and head out for daytime
 friends where you are going so that someone knows where you are.                        excursions
 This may seem childish, but when crossing the street, pay attention to
 oncoming traffic; cars drive very fast, and there are few speed limits.                 Daytime excursions
                                                                                         (Snowboarding, City Tour, Tubing, etc.)
 If your room has a balcony, please be careful around the railings. Also,
 remember to lock your balcony door when you are not using it.
                                                                                         Board your bus to return back to hotel
 Fighting will not be tolerated. You are all on vacation to have a good time
 and fighting ruins it for everybody. If you are involved in a fight, all those
 involved will be dismissed from the trip. Plain and simple.                             Leisure time

 Alcoholic beverages are strictly forbidden in hotel common areas [hallways,
 elevators, lobby, etc.]
                                                                                         Board your bus and head back to hotel
 S-Trip! does not condone excessive drinking. If you are of age and wish
 to drink alcoholic beverages when you are away from the hotel, please
 remember to be responsible and consider the safety of yourself and those
 around you. Being hung over and sick simply means that you don’t have
 the energy to enjoy all there is to do at your destination. Heavy drinking
 is very dangerous. Please be smart and look out for your friends.

 At certain venues, students who are at/above the age of majority will
 receive a bracelet that will allow them to purchase alcoholic beverages.
 Please remember that you are not allowed to purchase any drinks for
 students that are under the age of majority. The venues have the right to
 dismiss any individuals breaking this rule from their premises.

 Although some drugs may be tolerated in Canada, the laws in other
 countries can be VERY severe. Don’t take the chance of purchasing or
 participating in the use of drugs. Authorities and staff will be looking for
 drugs, and if you are caught, you will be removed from the trip immediately
 and may wind up in jail.
