Saving money with a student card

Posted by FishUdders on 5/1/2012 at 15:12

Hello, I am travelling to SE Asia and a couple of other countries in a few months. I know that with an international student card you can save a fair amount of money on many attractions, however... I am no longer a student. Does anyone have any ideas or experience of getting a student card despite not being a student. Or is anyone aware of any other internationally recognised cards that could save a bit of money on the attractions.

Thanks a lot.

Hi, this is a shemless plug but really is relevant for you. Our company offer a discount card for Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia (and starting to cover Laos) - we can save you money on food, accommodation, activities and more whilst you are there. Open to everyone!

www.internationalbackpackercard.com - hope this helps you. Have a great time

I am looking for a student discount card and my school (Yr 12) offers the NUS card. However i found out about the ISIC card for £9 which is international.
Doe the ISIC card cover everything in the NUS card or do they offer different discounts. I know Burtons covers both cards but is this the seam for all places offering discounts to NUS/ISIC?

Things are so cheap in SEA, I don't see how these cards would be accepted, except for certain hostels?
