5 Benefits Of Offering ISIC Cards To Your University Students
Making student life better is what we set out to do! Don't believe us? We've put together 5 key benefits to the students of your universities should you wish to offer ISIC cards to them.
While we could more than comfortably go on and on, here are the 5 key benefits.
1 | Allows students to prove their student status in 130 countries
Whether you're trying to prove that you're a full-time student in Barcelona or Peru, sadly more often than not the standard University card just won't cut it. The ISIC card continues to be the only internationally recognised proof of student status. Recognised by universities, academic institutions, student unions, national governments, financial institutions and ministries of education around the world, the ISIC card has been endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) since 1968.
2 | Provides students access to 150,000+ discounts on products and services
Although travel benefits will always remain central to the card, ISIC cardholders also gain preferential and discounted access to over 150,000 products, services and experiences relevant to all aspects of student life. From educational courses and public transport, all the way through to music streaming and world heritage sites, there are a multitude of offers available to ISIC cardholders.
3 | Gives students the opportunity to use their well-earned breaks for a holiday
Our partnership with our good friends at STA Travel has been both a lengthy one for us, and most rewarding for many of our cardholders. Exclusive for ISIC cardholders, STA Travel's exclusive airfares for students have enabled the young, free and studious to roam the planet on the lowest and most flexible airfares for the past 35 years.
4 | International students can reduce their cost on the things they want to see and do in Australia
The initial excitement of being an international student is too often sadly overshadowed by the costs of actually being one, as is often the case in Australia. With international students in mind, we have worked hard to ensure that they can enjoy an Australian lifestyle, uncompromised! Whether it be a rail journey through tropical Australia, accommodation in the best spots, or memorable day trips, we've got it covered!
5 | Marketing and revenue raising opportunities for the universities
It's not just the students who can reap the rewards from having an ISIC card, universities can share in the joy too. Providing both further marketing opportunities and an extra income stream, you'll get the best of both worlds!
The ISIC card is your ultimate student discount card saving you money in Australia & overseas. Find out more about the ISIC, ITIC and IYTC cards here.
