StudentUniverse, a leading resource for student travel discounts and WYSE Travel Confederation member, today announced that it has extended a successful US partnership with discount airfare aggregator KAYAK into the UK.
Through this agreement, KAYAK.co.uk will now display discounted fares from StudentUniverse to student visitors.
“We are committed to giving our users the best travel deals possible. Our integration with StudentUniverse gives our student users access to fares negotiated specifically for the student demographic. This speciality pricing often helps students find the best discounted student airline tickets available,” said Loella Pehrsson, Regional Director UK, Ireland & the Nordics, KAYAK.
“We have worked successfully with StudentUniverse in the US market since 2011 and we look forward to replicating that success in the UK market.”
StudentUniverse negotiates with a network of global partners to offer exclusive pricing and terms on flights, hotels and tours to students at degree-granting universities worldwide (some deals are also available for 18-25 year olds). StudentUniverse leverages proprietary verification technology to confirm a student’s status. Becoming a member of StudentUniverse is free and students are not required to purchase a discount card.
“With our fares published on KAYAK.co.uk, we are able to help students searching for budget travel to more easily access the best student fares, compare them in real-time with the prices offered by other airlines and aggregators and book them on StudentUniverse.co.uk,” said Dan Baker, Marketing Manager, StudentUniverse UK.
“When a student finds a StudentUniverse flight via KAYAK that they wish to book, they can sign up to become a member of StudentUniverse (if they aren’t already) for free, and after automatic verification of their student status, they are on their way to their next adventure.”
