Traveling is a great way to learn about the world around you. Unfortunately, it’s also usually pretty expensive as well. Unless you are booking your trip with STA Travel.
STA Travel is a travel agency that has been helping students travel around the world for 30 years. STA Travel offers more than just basic travel information; STA has everything you need to plan your student-budget-friendly vacation, including flights, tours, hotels and hostels, and information concerning how to get around when you are abroad.
In addition to everything you need to actually travel, STA offers other valuable products and services. For example, if you want to plan a side adventure during your vacation, STA can organize everything you need so that you do not have to. When I was in Europe, I tried to organize a side trip to Barcelona, Spain, and failed miserably because I just did not have enough information. If I had traveled through STA, I am sure they could have made it a much easier process.
While you are traveling, it is important to stay in contact with the people back home that miss and love you. Sadly, most cell phone companies will charge you an arm and a leg to make an international phone call. That’s why STA offers global cell phones: to give students “an easy and cost effective way of keeping in touch with friends and family while touring the world.”
STA also offers discount cards to students, teachers, and youths to make traveling easier on the pocketbook. These discount cards provide more than 35,000 international and domestic discounts on everything from Target.com to airplane tickets.
Another benefit of STA Travel is that you can access it from anywhere. STA Travel has 18 retail stores across the USA, where you can talk to a student travel expert in person. If there is not a retail store close to you, you can call the 24-hour National Call Center or check out the website.
