About ISTC

The ISTC’s mission is: “to increase international understanding through the promotion of travel and exchange opportunities among students, young people and the academic community.”

The International Student Travel Confederation (ISTC) is a not-for-profit organisation, founded in 1949 by the travel departments of a group of national student unions, to explore the needs of the growing numbers of student and youth travellers.

Thanks to ISTC, students, young people and teaching professionals have access to a global network of leading travel specialists, offering low priced flights, travel tickets, insurance, accommodation, work and study abroad programs as well as special deals on entertainment, sightseeing and shopping in countries all over the world.
