How to Convince Your Strict Parent to Let You Go on a Unleashed Fiji Grad Trip!

So, you've got your heart set on going to Fiji with Unleashed for your grad trip, but there's just one tiny obstacle standing in your way – your strict parent. Fear not, we're here to help you navigate the treacherous waters of parental persuasion. We have created a list of reasons for you to convince your parents on why you should be allowed to go to Unleashed Fiji. Let's dive right in, shall we?

Reason 1: Unleashed has strict safety measures…

Ah, safety – the golden ticket to parental approval and peace of mind. At Unleashed, safety isn't just a priority; it's our promise. Let's take a closer look at the list of safety measures we've put in place to ensure your Grad Trip is nothing short of spectacular.

First up, we have our infamous Unleashed crew. We have day and night crew, think of us as your older sibling. They're your ultimate travel companions, your go-to buddies, your partners in crime. Now, let's say you've had a bit too much fun and somehow find yourself wandering aimlessly, trying to locate your room. Fear not! The Unleashed crew will swoop in like your personal GPS, guiding you back to your villa and friends. With the Unleashed crew by your side, you're gaining a squad of lifelong friends who've got your back every step of the way. So wave goodbye to any feeling of loneliness and hello to endless adventures with your newfound travel family.

Next up, we have our Red Frogs. No, not the amphibious kind – these are a team of legends who roam the resorts, armed with knowledge and ready to educate on safe party behaviors. Think of them as your trusty sidekicks, always there to lend a hand (or a piece of advice) when you need it most.

But wait, there's more! Our security team is highly expertised, ensuring that no unwanted guests crash your party. Unlike the Gold Coast scene, our Fiji trip is a student’s only trip, a private resort, preventing anyone from coming into the resort, including toolies and locals.

And let's not forget our amazing resort staff, who greet you with open arms and a welcoming Bula and hi-five as soon as you set foot on the resort.

Of course, safety isn't just about warm welcomes and friendly faces – it's about being prepared for the unexpected. That's why we have a 24-hour medical facility on standby, ready to handle any bumps, bruises, or unexpected mishaps that come your way. Because let's face it – life is unpredictable, but your safety shouldn't be.

But safety isn't just about rules and regulations – it's about making smart choices. That's why we have certain guidelines in place, such as our code of conduct OR the rule against swimming after 7.00pm. Sorry, night owls – we're all about keeping you safe and sound on dry land.

Your mum’s worried about you getting lost on the island? Additionally, we provide a 24/7 support line in Fiji, allowing students to reach out at any time and receive immediate assistance from our Unleashed Crew. Or maybe.. you were having so much fun you forgot to check in with your parents once arriving, don't worry - we extend 24/7 parent support throughout the trip, ensuring that parents feel reassured and confident at all times. We can make contact with your parents and vise versa.

And if you're 17 and worried about facing the temptation of alcohol, fear not – we've got your back. You can proudly tell your mom that you're not even old enough to buy a drink in Australia, let alone Fiji. The same rules apply!

So there you have it – the Unleashed safety net is designed to keep you safe, happy, and ready for adventure. With red frogs, Unleashed crew members, security guards, 24/7 hotline and friendly staff at every turn, you can relax and enjoy the trip of a lifetime. Because when it comes to safety, we don't just talk the talk – we walk the walk.

Reason 2: It’s not all about party, but also learning Fijian culture…

Our Cultural Day activity allows you to immerse yourself in the vibrant local traditions of Fiji. From learning traditional Meke practice to experiencing a Kava ceremony, coral and tree planting, basket weaving, and Fiji language lessons, you'll gain a deeper appreciation for the rich heritage of Fiji and forge lasting connections with the local community. Past students have found this experience extremely rewarding, often expressing a desire to extend their stay or return for future visits. This cultural immersion is not only educational but also profoundly impactful, offering a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Reason 3: You’ve worked hard studying all year and deserve it…

Studying for the HSC can be exhausting, but your dedication has paid off. Now, it's time to celebrate your achievements and reward yourself for your hard work. You've spent countless hours locked away in your room, sacrificing social time and personal pursuits to excel academically. Now, as you stand on the brink of graduation, it's time to reclaim your social life!

Reason 4: Unleashed includes food and accommodation

Don't worry, meals are included on Unleashed’s Fiji trips - you won't go hungry! We offer a large variety of buffet meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner (plus dessert) with something for everyone! You may have special dietary requirements... We got you! Speak to our Crew and we can sort out plenty of options so you can sit back, relax and eat meals with your friends. Fancy a late night feed before bed... burger, nuggets, chippies, sandwiches.. need we say more?

Our Fiji trip also offers safe and comfortable accommodation, complete with all the necessary amenities for a restful night's sleep. Everyone gets a bed!

Hydration? We've got that covered too – you'll be sipping on water at all times. With your mom's concerns addressed and your determination to take care of yourself, there's no doubt she'll feel much more at ease about letting you go on your Grad Trip adventure. After all, a little reassurance can go a long way in calming those parental worries.

Now for the Art of Persuasion…

Now, armed with enough reasons, it's time to tackle the ultimate boss level – convincing your strict parents. Start by buttering them up with compliments and promises of eternal gratitude (bonus points for mentioning how much you'll miss them – cue the waterworks). Then, hit them with the hard facts – the red frogs, the unleashed crew, and the security. And if all else fails, resort to the tried-and-true method of negotiation: bribery. Offer to do extra chores, swear off junk food for a month, or promise to never ask for anything ever again – whatever it takes to seal the deal.

OR, leave it up to the professionals. Our Trip Planners have a world of knowledge on our trips and they will happily jump on the phone to chat to you or your mum to put their mind at ease. Click the enquire now button on the top right and fill out the form - we will get back to you so fast!

So there you have it – the ultimate guide to convincing your strict parent to let you go to Unleashed for your Grad Trip. With our safety measures, there's no way they can say no. So go forth, young traveller, and may the odds be ever in your favour. Unleashed awaits!
