Cocoa Beach FLFor spring break, you’re planning the ultimate family getaway in Cocoa Beach, FL. You look forward to making memories and tlong, relaxed days enjoying that Florida sunshine. However, before spring break is here, be sure to heed these few travel tips from our staff at Carl’s Van Rentals .

1. Do your research.

There’s no shortage of what you can do in the Cocoa Beach or the greater Port Canaveral area. From lounging in the sand to watching a rocket launch, you can easily fill your days with activities. Before you head this way, we recommend that you research activities and attractions, and then narrow down what you might like to do.

2. Know what you can afford.

Before coming to Cocoa Beach or even booking anything, we recommend that you set a realistic budget for your vacation. We want you to cut loose and enjoy your vacation, but returning broke may not be worth it. Therefore, plan ahead, and know how much vacation you can afford.

3. Make reservations early.

Spring break is a popular time of year to travel to Florida. You don’t want to make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to book your accommodations, to get tickets to the rocket launch, or to reserve your van rental. We recommend that you book those must-do items on your list early on. You can leave other reservations that are less time sensitive for later.

4. Prioritize Kennedy Space Center.

You can’t come to Cocoa Beach on vacation and not visit the Kennedy Space Center. This nationally known attraction holds so much history and provides experiences you can’t find anywhere else. Where else can you meet an astronaut face to face? You’d be remiss to miss out.

5. Search for deals and discounts.

You don’t have to go broke vacationing in Cocoa Beach. Ask around for special offers; you may even decide to haggle a little. Search for online coupons or group discounts. Never pay full price until you’ve searched for savings. At Carl’s Van Rentals, we already make our reliable van rental rates affordable, but we don’t stop there. We also offer regular rental specials, so be sure to check them out before renting a car or van.

Carl’s Van Rentals serves the greater Cocoa Beach area, providing high-quality minivans, passenger vans, Jeeps, and more to spring break travelers. To find out more about our fleet or to make a reservation, contact us today at (800) 565-5211. We hope to see you soon in Cocoa Beach!
