STA Travel lands at UC – exclusive student deals

If you wondered what was going to pop up in the old copy shop in the Undercroft, all has been revealed this week with the grand opening of global student travel agency, STA Travel.

STA was started back in 1979 by two backpackers with long-haul jet lag and an idea to create affordable adventures for awesome humans. STA Travel has grown today to be the world’s leading student and youth travel company.

Get sweet student savings on flights, tours, day trips, accommodation, insurance and more, for trips overseas and around New Zealand. STA Travel can hook you up with all the basics and also specialises in cost-effective round the world flight combos, Contiki tours, working holidays, volunteering, festivals (hello Oktoberfest!), mid-semester breaks and grad trips.

The best bit?  Travel can be costly, but it doesn’t need to break the bank. STA Travel offers FLEXIpay where a $99 deposit is all you need to secure your flight price and then pay the rest off as you go or in one lump sum 10 weeks before travel.  No interest, no credit cards, no contracts and no catches, just $99 on a huge range of airlines taking you across the globe. There are also deposit options on accommodation and tours so that Bali New Year’s trip is closer than you think…

Come and see Emma and the team at the new STA Travel UC store, located in the Undercroft, or email the team on canterburyuni@statravel.com.  Ask about opening specials for your next overseas or domestic trip.
