WYSE Travel Confederation


The World Youth Student & Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation was founded in 2006 with the merger of the Federation of International Youth Travel Organisations (FIYTO) and the International Student Travel Confederation (ISTC).

Untitled-1The Confederation’s mission is “to increase international understanding through the promotion of travel and educational opportunities for students and youth”.

Members of the Confederation work through specialist sector associations to provide a range of valuable services and products for young travellers around the globe including Student Identity Cards, Language Travel Experiences, Work Exchange and Au Pair Experiences, Student Flights, Youth Accommodation and Travel Insurance.

In addition to assisting with the provision of these services and products, the Confederation is committed to understanding the ever changing characteristics, motivations, and needs of young travellers. The Confederation gathers, analyses and shares important research data and market intelligence with its members, academics, corporate and government decision-makers, and the general travelling public.

The Confederation’s signature networking and trading event is the annual World Youth and Student Travel Conference (www.wystc.org). Growing in size as well as reputation, WYSTC is now considered the student and youth education and travel community’s most important, must-attend conference.
