Compare prices for airfares. There are huge differences. The following websites have good prices for international and student travel:
- Check STA travel. They have student discounts, and you can usually change your return flight with a minimal fee. They also allow you to reserve your flight for a small fee and pay later. Look for the Book Now, Pay Later!
- Student Universe
- kayak.com - This website searches all the other on-line travel sites.
- travelocity.com - A reliable resource, but it is not always the cheapest.
Travel Tip While AbroadYour overseas experience extends beyond the classroom. Students on tight budgets will find more activities, people and adventures in and near their study sites than they can take advantage of in a semester or year. Think about doing more local travel within your host country. It's greener, and riding a bicycle through the Loire Valley or backpacking to Macchu Picchu will be more memorable than stopping in that 15th European capital!
