How to recognise an ISIC card
What you need to know
Offline benefits can be redeemed when customers show either their virtual card on the ISIC App on a smartphone or their ISIC/IYTC/ITIC membership card (card type accepted depends on your individual offer).
- All cards are valid for one year and the validity is shown clearly on both virtual and physical cards.
All cards, both virtual and physical must display a photograph of the cardholder. Cards are not valid without a photo.
The person redeeming the benefit must be the person named and shown on the card.
The ISIC Virtual Card
Offers can be redeemed via the virtual card showing the ISIC app. The green dot on the virtual card indicates that the card is valid and the card validity is clearly shown on both the virtual and plastic cards. ISIC, IYTC and ITIC cards can all be displayed as virtual cards.
Please note, From May 2019 new look ISIC, IYTC & ITIC cards are being issued globally. Throughout 2019 and 2020 the old cards both plastic and virtually issued will gradually be phased out, but both designs of cards remain valid as long as the expiry is valid.
