Sometimes an ID card is more than just an ID card! The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is "the only internationally accepted proof of bona fide student status" worldwide and no student should head abroad without one!
ISIC cards are issued in over 125 countries worldwide. All students over the age of 12, of any nationality, can purchase a card at an affordable price and reap the rewards.
So, what are the rewards, you ask? As well as being able to prove your student status internationally, the ISIC card allows you access over 42,000 exclusive benefits around the world. From deals on airfare and train travel to discounted hotels and museum admission, your card will allow you to soak up foreign cultures on a budget.
The ISIC Association aims to play a supporting role in improving intercultural understanding, increasing educational opportunities and facilitating student life across the world. The ISIC card has been endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1968.
Even if you're not a full-time student, you can look into the International Youth Traveling Card (for young people aged 12 - 26), or the International Teacher Identity Card for deals.
