WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT STA TRAVEL
If you are an adventurer and plan to visit every place on Earth before going down into the grave, then STA Travel is the travel company that you've been looking for. They offer one of the best ways to travel the world, whether as their client or an employee. Here are just some of the ways that STA Travel has raised the bar in modern world travel.
They Love Traveling:
Traveling is knowing. This is a maxim that runs through each and every corner of their company. They are avid travelers and they help people plan their own trips, adventures and safaris. Unlike other companies that plan the trips of their clients blindly, without even knowing the details about the places their clients are traveling to, STA Travel provides their clients with detailed travel plans, their safest shopping routes and more.
Also important to note, unlike their competitors they offer discounted tickets for students and youth travelers under the age of 26. This is so important to the college student who needs to watch their budget.
Original Round the World Travelers:
Since 1979, the company has managed to keep a very outstanding profile with respect to hiring their travelers. STA Travel doesn’t advertise in which they don’t believe in. STA Travel only hires real travelers who have actually visited and experienced these places. So, currently it’s the only company with employees that are real, experienced world travelers.
Totally Client Focused:
Despite the fact that STA Travel has reputation of being a successful, multinational firm, their engagement with a client is always personal and local. As a client, you will always feels important and welcome. There is nothing fake about this company. Wherever you travel, you will be welcomed by a friendly and experienced staff.

ABOUT STA TRAVEL
Here comes the best part about the STA Travel. They have an amazing user experience through their website. Each and every bit of STA Travel information can be found over on their website, including reviews. Basically, their website contains any piece of information you need to plan your next adventure. You can search for anything associated with travel, like the flights, adventure tours, upcoming safari events, etc. Another great feature is, not only can you find the best travel deals, but also you can find some of the best jobs that will take you across the globe. It would be an injustice to not mention the role students play in the company’s foundation. Hundreds of students are registered with STA Travel as part-time travelers. The students are professional and enthusiastic while striving for a client’s satisfaction. Cutting a long story short, if you are planning to spend your vacations on the shores of the Bahamas or if you want to sneak out to Abu Dhabi for an adventurous desert safari, at least now you are aware of a place that can get you from your computer to your destination.
THE SUMMER OF 1979 - TODAY
Our story starts way back in 1979, in a magical era where flares were fashionable and affordable adventures were scarce. The location was Oz (not the magical one with the wizard, the Australian one) where two young students had just returned from their travels, slightly jetlagged but on the biggest high of their lives.
Inspired by the planet, the people they had met and the places they had seen, they set out on a mission to bring affordable flights and worldly adventures to other students, young people and explorers. The result was STA Travel.
That was over 35 years ago, and we've been traveling the world spreading love, peace and adventure ever since!
Today we have almost 2,000 people working in over 200 stores around the globe, helping over 2 million travelers a year start their adventure.
Our core flight product is known as the Blue Ticket – this name goes back many years ago when plane tickets were still carbon copied paper, and STA Travel’s happened to have blue covers. These were the original “student ticket” – while a lot has changed in the days of paper tickets, our Blue Tickets still amazing deals for students and youth travelers. Not only are they often cheaper than regular tickets on the same carrier, but they can be much more flexible. This is important for study abroad, backpacking, work abroad, etc… It is too hard to plan an exact return date on a 6 month trip, and regular change fees can be so expensive! We have Blue Tickets on over 60 airlines, including Air Canada, Icelandair, Qantas, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, LATAM and many more! http://www.statravel.com/blue-ticket.htm
OTHER STUDENT FARES
In addition to our Blue Tickets, we also have other discounts on many other airlines – like American Airlines, British Airways, Air France, Aeromexico, etc… These tickets offer discounts, plus many offer flexible terms similar to our Blue Ticket airlines
We are the only company I know of that aggregates tours from suppliers around the world – we have exclusive offers on Contiki, G Adventures, Dragoman and smaller tour companies from around the globe: http://tours.statravel.com/
Rail Passes and tickets are also very popular, and not to be found on the Expedia’s and Priceline’s of the world. Best selling passes are Eurail, followed by Japan Rail passes. https://rail.statravel.com/
A lot of people think Student Travel and think Spring Break, but that is really just a few weeks over March. Our biggest destination is Europe, and this year we have some incredible rates… It is a perfect storm for cheap Europe Travel – The price of oil has kept airfares lower than in the past year, plus some new low cost airlines have entered the market like Norwegian, WOW and Level. The British Pound and Euro are at historic lows compared to the dollar, so accommodation, rail and food are great values as well. Iceland has also become very popular!
