Who can get an ISIC card?

If you’re a full-time student at school, college or university and aged 12 or over, you can apply for a student card with ISIC. It’s a hassle-free process, and in no time at all you’ll be enjoying thousands of discounts and benefits at home and abroad. If you’re not a full time student, you may be eligible for our youth card (if you 30 years old or younger) or our teacher card (if you are a full time teacher).

What documents do I need to get an ISIC card?

The ISIC card is only for full-time students, so you need to bring one of the following documents and a recent passport size photo to your closest STA Travel branch, or ready for upload when you apply online:

  • A document that proves that you are currently studying full time at a recognised school, college or university.
  • A copy of your university or student card, which is dated and clearly indicates you are currently a full-time student.
  • A signed and dated letter on official university or school stationery, which states you are a full-time student.

We would prefer an original copy, but photocopies and faxes may be acceptable and an official proof of your date of birth (ie. passport, drivers license or birth certificate).

Definition of a full-time student

As a general guideline students must be studying in a secondary school, university or college or educated at a recognised education institution for a minimum of 12 weeks and have at least 15 hours of contact time per week to be considered as a full time student. If you are a full-time teacher, or 30 years old or younger, you can also enjoy similar benefits to the ISIC card with the International Youth Travel Card (IYTC card) or the International Teachers Identity Card (ITIC).

Where can I get my ISIC card?

You can simply apply ONLINE or visit your nearest STA Travel branch to get your ISIC card issued. All you have to do is bring proof of full time student status, proof of ID, and a passport-sized photo. For online orders, the same documents are required, but they must be uploaded to the website instead.

How much does an ISIC card cost?

The price of an ISIC card is only £12.00 GBP – nothing compared to the hundreds of pounds you’ll save! Please note, ISIC / IYTC / ITIC cards are non-refundable. For more information on the ISIC card, please visit our FAQ section here.
