why travel with us - youth travel awards stamp

we know because we go

We travel, therefore we are

Here's how we see it. If you're going to book a trip, you should book with travellers. Our Travel Experts are worldly-wise, well-travelled and can pack a 60 litre backpack in two minutes flat.

We are 24/7/365

We know how important it is to feel safe on the road. That's why we're online and on the phone 24 hours a day to help resolve issues quickly, so that you can get back on with the fun stuff.

original round the world experts

We are the experts

We've been trusted by travellers for almost 40 years. We work with the world's leading airlines, touring partners and ground handlers to create experiences that are real, authentic and responsible.

book now pay later

We make it happen for less

We know that the earlier you book, the cheaper your trip will be. That's why you can now lock in the lowest priced airfares and best flight times with just a £49 deposit, paying the balance 10 weeks before you fly.*

We're about exploring, not exploiting

For us, travelling isn't about bucket lists or bragging rights. We believe that travel has the power to break down boundaries and leave a positive imprint on communities. Find out how we're making a stand below.

blueticket flights

We are young and free (mostly)

The world's largest airline network for students and under 31, our famous BlueTickets have been flying the young and the studious around the planet on the lowest and most flexible airfares since 1979.

STA Travel on social responsibility

Our industry-leading animal welfare policy has already seen us audit and remove almost 4,000 tours and activities, our voluntourism codes of conduct are ensuring that the projects we work with are supporting local communities via sustainability rather than dependency, and our global teen cancer partnership has already raised hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Our social responsibility

We are Generation FLEXI

It's simple: your adventure, your rules. As travellers, we don't like to feel tied down. We want flexible payments instore, flexible dates on the road, and we want to feel embraced for changing our minds, not penalised for it. That's why we created FLEXI. Flexible flights, tours, day trips, campervans, rail and bus passes... finally.

We are responsible

We operate a comprehensive customer safety policy, constantly assessing our operations and withdrawing any products or properties where our health and safety standards or company values are compromised. Quite simply, if it's not safe, we won't sell it.
