PAckinG
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.

Packing a light change of clothes along with your bathing suit in your carry
on luggage is a very good idea. In the rare event that your luggage does
get lost, you will at least be able to enjoy yourself while you wait for your
luggage to catch up.


   Luggage
   All airlines have weight restrictions for luggage, typically 20 Kg [approx.
   50 lbs] total weight for two bags. So pack wisely, and avoid bringing
   heavy items.

 a strict age policy with regards to drinking at any of our destinations (18+
 only). All of our hotels will check each passenger’s passport to verify
 age/date of birth. Students who are under 18 years of age will be issued                                   Curfew starts (Head to your rooms

 the hotels, restaurants, and bars to enforce drinking ages. S-Trip! does
 not have any control in enforcing legal drinking ages. Any venue reserves
 the right to deny alcohol to any passenger for any reason.                       Please note exact timing of schedule varies between resorts.
                                                                                  Staff will provide you with a schedule for your resort upon arrival.
 resPOnsiBLe Drinking
 S-Trip! does not condone excessive drinking. If you are of age, please drink
 responsibly 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.

 BraCeLets /iD
 If you are not of age and the hotel gives you a bracelet that identifies
 you as a minor please do not tamper with it. The hotel has the right to
 remove you from their facilities.

 Drugs
 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.

Meals
Whether you crave dishes authentic to your destination or international favourites like French fries, your resort is sure to offer it and it’s all included in your Grad
Trip. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in-between including the mid-day and late-night snacks are all a part of the program. During your destination briefing
upon arrival the S-Trip! staff will tell you all about the different food options on your resort. If you have any questions about meals you can always stop by the
S-Trip! info desk and speak to one of our staff throughout the week.




Meals

  breakfast
  Enjoy a delicious and nutritious breakfast, at your hotel’s buffet or at one of the a la carte restaurants, every morning of your stay! You’ll find
  everything from eggs & bacon, to cereal, to fresh local fruits. Remember, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so don’t miss it!




  Lunch
  Amazing lunch options can be found all over your resort! At most resorts, you’ll find a pool side or beach side grill offering burgers, sandwiches,
  and other delicious BBQ dishes. This is also the perfect time to take advantage of any a la carte restaurants that offer a lunch menu.




  Dinner
  Dinner is the time to get away from the buffets and experience a nice sit down meal with your friends. Your group will be able to enjoy a three-
  to-four course meal in a beautiful setting and savour the flavours of a specific type of cuisine. Most a la carte restaurants require a reservation
  and have dress codes.


  snacks
  In case you’re hungry in between meals (or late at night!), most resorts will offer snacks and/or fast food options for their guests. Grab a quick
  bite and get back out onto the beach!



 IMportant: Please let the S-Trip! Destination Staff know if you have any food allergies/restrictions as soon as you check-in at the hotel. We will do our
 best to accommodate your needs.
 *Check the s-trip! Info desk for full details on meal times, locations, and menu options for all of the meal options included in your trip package
 and offered at your resort.
