Taking a break from school is great but what if you are in a tight budget? Don't worry because you can take advantage of student flight tickets so you won't have to spend a fortune if you want to travel.
One thing that can help you save a lot of money is by getting an International Student ID Card. It's the only internationally-recognized student ID. Every year, more than 4.5 million students use their cards to avail of discounts and deals. If you travel worldwide and you are carrying your card with you, aside from airfares, you can also get discounts on transportation, accommodation, food, museums, retail shops, etc. You can also use your card back home so make sure you check with your local restaurants, movie theaters and shops.
Go to the nearest issuing point for ISIC cards but if you can't, you can just order online. If your country is not on the list and you are planning to travel or study abroad, you can keep in touch with the ISIC issuing point at the country of destination so you can get the card when you arrive. The standard ISIC card is valid for 16 months, from the start of the academic year.
ISTC affiliated Student and Youth Travel offices have collaborated with airlines to offer special rates on student flight tickets to hundreds of destinations around the world. Most of these special airfares are negotiated through SATA or Student Air Travel Association.
As long as you are a full-time student (12 years and over) attending a recognized school, college or university, you can get an ISIC card. This will allow you to get affordable student flight tickets. Aside from special deals, the specially designed student tickets will also allow you to customize your travel which means that you can fly into one city and return from another. You have the ability to remain flexible, yes you can change your travel dates and routes along the way and the best part is, you will only be charged a minimal fee if not free. If you change your mind, you can be refunded for the unused portions of the ticket. Isn't that amazing? If you want to find out more, you can check the ISIC website.
