Students and ISIC cardholders can take advantage of low rates on high-speed train from London

(Los Angeles, CA – August 1, 2004) STA Travel, a world leader in student and youth travel, and Eurostar join forces to offer students and International Student Identity Card (ISIC) cardholders extra savings in high-speed rail travel from London to Paris and other destination points. The Eurostar tickets can be booked at a special student rate through STA Travel exclusively and will offer young travelers more flexibility than regular Eurostar tickets, which are non-refundable and non-changeable once booked. These special tickets are $51 (as opposed to the regular rate of $75) and are valid on any scheduled Eurostar train, based on space and ticket availability. These tickets also have much more flexibility as they are valid for longer periods of time and can be changed for only $25.
