StudentUniverse to provide flight discounts to international students studying in Europe
StudentUniverse, a leading resource for student travel discounts, today announced that it has partnered with the Erasmus Student Network, the largest student organisation in Europe.
Through the partnership, StudentUniverse will help ESN’s members travel cheaper by providing an additional £15 / €20 discount on top of its already-discounted student and youth fares on the first flight they book with StudentUniverse. StudentUniverse will join other notable ESN partners (including Airbnb, Hostelling International, Eurail.com and The Economist) to serve as a resource for international students and ESN’s local member organisations worldwide.
ESN members will also regularly receive travel tips and ongoing information from StudentUniverse about flight sales and promotions that would be of interest to international students looking to travel during their exchange, or to and from their university at the beginning and end of the semester.
“We are always looking to partner with organisations that can provide valuable resources for international students and the local member organisations we work with. Travel plays a fundamental role in a student’s Erasmus experience, and by partnering with StudentUniverse we're confident that ESN members will be able to better compare specialty travel pricing for students and book discounted travel deals,” said Stefan Jahnke, President of the Erasmus Student Network.
“We look forward to working with StudentUniverse to help international students see more of the world, but also to help our member organisations travel to ESN events worldwide by collaborating with StudentUniverse’s Travel Services team for group bookings.”
StudentUniverse is the world’s leading travel booking site for students and youth. Through negotiations with a network of global partners, StudentUniverse offers discounted pricing and terms on flights, hotels and tours. Its Travel Services division handles client requests for groups and custom itineraries.
StudentUniverse launched in the UK in 2013 and is headquartered in Boston with offices in London, Toronto, New York and the Philippines.
