Student Travel Guide

Posted on

Strapped for cash and late for lectures? Just spent your student loan on a killer laptop? Don’t worry. The guide to student travel will show you how to get about without getting caught out.

Book in advance to save more money

The early bird always catches the best prices with If you know when you’re going, it’s always worth booking ahead of time. You can do long distance journeys, like going home for the holidays or going off to see your mates at other unis, for significant savings. Get your calendar out and get cracking – you’ll thank us for it when you’ve still got beer money at the end of the line.

Leave rush hour to the commuters

Fancy being poked, prodded and pushed into a train full of angry people, and spending the whole journey with your face in someone’s armpit? Didn’t think so. Why bother with the stress of rush hour (and the extra expense) when you can pick off peak hours and travel in comfort? For short journeys, you’ll be able to sit where you like. Leave rush hour until you have to do it for real. In the meantime, enjoy the view from your lovely empty seat…

Rock your Railcard

Your 16-25 Railcard is more than just a great deal for train travel. As well as 1/3 off all rail fares (which means when you book with you get our savings plus more money off), the Railcard often runs discount promotions on top London attractions. Whether you’re looking for a big night out or a day at the zoo, there’s something for everyone. Check out the current 2 for 1 Railcard offers to make the most of your student discounts.

From rail to sail…

Think your student discount stops at the end of the line? Think again. Participating ferry services (including Wightlink and Red Funnel Ferries for the Isle of Wight, and Stena for Northern Ireland) offer discounts to Railcard holders too. Book your train tickets early to get the best discount, add in a Railcard saving for your train travel and your sea travel, and you’ve got the smallest price possible for your biggest adventure yet. Whether it’s crowd surfing at the legendary Isle of Wight festival or actual surfing on the west coast of Ireland, you still save. Get on!

…and buses too

Plenty of national bus companies (including the Transport For London bus service) will let you combine rail and road travel with your Railcard. Check out the websites of your bus provider for more information.

Making the most of your travel discounts couldn’t be easier. Start by booking in advance, using your railcard, for the cheapest possible tickets. Don’t forget to claim your loyalty points so you can build up the savings for future journeys too.
