Brightspark Spring Packing List

Student travel season has arrived and with that comes packing. If your student or child is unsure of what to bring for their class trip, then worry no more, we have everything you need to make your trip hassle free with our spring packing list!

Always pack light, and bring what you need. We suggest students restrict their luggage to one suitcase which can be stored in the luggage bins under the motor coach or on an airplane (international tours).

Don’t forget a carry-on bag, preferably a knapsack, that can be used to store important items on or off the bus.  Please keep in mind that the list below is an outline, and needs may change depending on your destination and personal requirements.

ACE TIP: Review the itinerary for any special events that would require additional items.  Please check the weather forecast for your destination while packing; as weather can differ from place to place.
