The BlueTicket story

Back in 1979, STA Travel's flare-wearing forefathers created the first ever tickets for students and young people. They were cheaper, more flexible and flew in the face of everything we'd ever known about airfares – offering unlimited stopovers, rebellious routings and bargain date changes. They were printed on blue paper, so today, we call them BlueTickets. (Slow day for the marketing team).

The BlueTicket Challenge

We wanted to prove just how much freedom and flexibility you get with our exclusive BlueTickets. So we took our colleague's dachshund, Nixon, and created a Round the World route in his honour. With BlueTicket, any combination is possible. Even canine ones.

But wait, I'm not a student...

Yes, we realise that this all seems a bit unfair to tax payers and the over 30s. That's why we have an open-to-all version of many of our BlueTickets, all offering the same unique freedom and flexibility. We just didn’t want to call them GreyTickets that’s all, out of respect.
