_As the French say "Les voyages forment la jeunesse", meaning, travelling shapes the youth's mind! As a student, there are some opportunities that you should not miss and there are certainly cheap ways to get around, here are a couple of tricks you can use to obtain the best student discount airfare.First go the conventional way, check the normal websites, Expedia, Priceline, and the very powerful ITA Matrix to see some of the deals. If you want to know more about this, check out Student Discount.  Also consult the airline's website and your travel agent. Make sure you do that early enough, like over a month before, because if you want a ticket for tomorrow, chances are that you will pay through the nose for the privilege. Airlines are in the habit of raising their prices as it gets closer to departure so be aware!When you acquaint yourself of the going rates, check the prices a few days before and a few days after your planned departure for some better deals, you will be surprised because prices are always all over the place!Now, for the not so conventional way; go check out the http://www.isic.org website where you can get an international student identity card which will give you discounts on travel, meals, accommodations, entertainment, all over the world. Check if it is for you and your destination (or even at home). There may be good savings there.The second site I recommend to students is Student Universe, they have a great interface to find your flight and I understand that they negotiate on behalf of students for better deals with the airlines, definitively a great resource. But that's not all, you are also eligible if you are a teacher, a member of the faculty or an employee of an educational institution.This is just a short article but I hope that it will be helpful in getting you a good deal on a student discount airfare, I traveled all over the world and I firmly believe that you should get the chance to experience new cultures, new places and see the world while you are young! Good luck and "bon voyage"! For more info, visit Student Discount.
