Find ISIC Discounts Across Canada and the U.S.

June 28, 2010

If your summer vacation is mostly a staycation, then your goal is to maximize your good times while minimizing your expenses, right?

Please meet the ISIC.

The International Student Identity Card is something most students pick up before a big trip overseas. Along with discounted student airfare and tour packages, you can flash it at:

  • hostels
  • museums
  • bus stations
  • amusement parks
  • restaurants
  • shops

And lots of other places to get discounts on purchases, tickets, admissions and other travel expenses.

But the ISIC isn’t just for use around tourist destinations in Europe and Australia. There are places right near you that accept an ISIC, so you can save cash even if you’re going for pizza and a movie with friends.

For a full list of ISIC discounts in Canada and the U.S., check out the ISIC website. Here’s a sample of where you can save.

  • Ontario Science Centre, Toronto: 20% off general admission
  • CN Tower, Toronto: 15% discount on Look Out and Glass Floor admission
  • Madame Tussaud’s, Hollywood: $6 off price of admission
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York: $10 USD admission with valid ISIC
  • Greyhound buses, Canada: 25% off an adult ticket (one way or return)
  • VIA Rail, Canada: Save 30% on the regular adult Economy class fares. Your discount can reach 50% with the VIA 6 pak – six one-way trip tickets between the same two cities.

Student Travel Cuts – “Decide where you want to go and add up all your travel expenses,” writes Lisa Turner, who is from San Francisco and Boston. “Then figure out how to get to that number. Do you need that daily coffee? Or the new iPod? Sacrificing the small material things to be able to take a great adventure is really no sacrifice at all.” Recommended posts: “Study on the High Seas: Semester at Sea 2011” and “Find ISIC Discounts Across Canada and the U.S.” […]
