Living Away From Home? Here’s How to Save on Homebound Travel

Written by Phaedra Corrente

Well, it’s official. Those of you who’ve gone away for school are now cozily nestled in your dorms and apartments, the luxury of going to class in your pyjamas right at your beck and call. We’d be lying if we said we weren’t jealous.

The freedom. The friends. The minimal amount of time it takes to get to class. It’s all pretty sweet, right? You can make that scholarly experience even sweeter if you get an International Student Identity Card (ISIC), the card that was made for students who love to save money.

“Wait,” you say. “That sounds exactly like me.”

We figured. So it’s a good thing the ISIC gets you discounts on travel, dining, learning tools, movie passes, and anything under the sun that makes your student life more enjoyable. You’ll enjoy these benefits not only at home, but all over the world. And even when you’re too homesick to function and you need to visit the fam, the ISIC has your back.

When Thanksgiving, winter break, and commencement time roll around, going homebound will be easy as pie. With an ISIC, fly Porter airlines for the price of a train ride when you travel between Toronto, Ottawa, and other major Canadian cities. Your family will be glad to see you and compliment you on your fantastic money-saving skills.

If you want to take advantage of your extra-long winter break to do even more traveling, no problem. Before returning to your new crib, why not visit London or explore Costa Rica for 10% off? You guessed it—ISIC can make that happen.

To get a card, you just need to be a full-time student aged 12 or over. That’s it. Seriously. And with a price tag of $20, we’re pretty sure it’ll only take 2 or 3 fewer Starbucks drinks to get a hold of one.

As a student, your duty is to study, have fun, and save money. We’ll help you with that last one and get you an ISIC. When you’re ready to book your trip, you can do it all on the exact same site! How convenient is that? For a more personal touch, go ahead and give our friends at travelcuts a call at 1-800-667-2887. They’ll be more than willing to help you save money.
