International Student Identity Card

The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is the most widely accepted proof of student status internationally, and also gives you access to the Student Travel Association's discounted rates and confirms your eligibility for student discounts in the countries you visit.

ISIC cards are not mandatory. (Be sure to research the applicability of the ISIC to your country; some students have used their ISIC quite a lot, while others have not-it depends largely on your location and your interests abroad.)

You can order your ISIC online at STA Travel's website.
