for these Savings?
Most of the youth or student discounts require you be under the
age of 24-26 years at the time of travel. Many companies will want
verification that you are the "correct" age for their product.
A number of these travel bargains require that you are a full time student
or educator and don't care what age you are. You will probably need to
provide verification of your student or teacher/faculty status such as a
student ID and/or a letter from your college registrar's office
stating your full-time student status. Give yourself plenty of time
to gather the information/documents they may require. It is well worth it
to spend time reading the fine print!

The majority of these bargains need to be purchased before you leave
home such as air and rail passes as well as hostel and discount
cards. There are some transportation deals only available in Europe.
