10 Places Smart Students Look for Discounts
Students can save big on travel. A $20 Student Advantage Discount Card nets 20 percent off Greyhound bus tickets and 10 percent off Amtrak tickets booked online. Coach USA promotes a VIP Student Travel Club with exclusive offers, and Zipcar works with some universities to provide reduced student rates. Sign up for free at Student Universe, verify you're a student, and you can search for deals on tours, flights, and hotels. STA Travel can save students money in Europe with 35 percent off Eurail trips for those 25 or younger. Be sure to ask about reduced rates at museums, aquariums, and other attractions. For students on tight budgets, there's no shame in asking about policies that allow visitors to donate as little (or as much) as they want, or get in for free.
