Here is how to get cheap airline tickets for students on spring break.

2. Search online

Discounts for popular destinations are available when you search online. Student tickets are available on many websites and from travel agents. But the question is whether those tickets cheaper than discount tickets for the general population Perhaps. Sometimes fantastic student fares are available, and sometimes they are not. And prices for student tickets can fluctuate by hundreds of dollars, even for the exact same flight.

When looking for the best spring break deals, you should do some student travel comparison, then. To get cheap student plane tickets, what you have to do is shop around for both student tickets and cheap general tickets. There are various online websites offering deals for student travel. All you need to do is fill in the registration online form at one of the websites and you will be able to use their services. Some of these websites may ask you to purchase an International Student Identity Card, while some may ask the e mail address of your college or university in order to verify your identity as a student.

Let's start by looking at what the student travel agencies have to offer. Simply type in your choice vacation spot, the date you will be traveling, as well as which airport you will be flying from. Then view the packages and prices. The packages usually come with all your meals, some snacks, drinks, and nightly entertainment. Buying a package from a student travel agency like STA Travel, Student Universe or Student City provides good spring break deals on hotel and air together, though you may be able to get each separately cheaper, but without any perks like airport transfers, etc. For instance, STA Travel deals exclusively with student travel and offers discount spring break packages within the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe.

After you investigated what deals student travel agencies offer, check student section of major travel sites. For instance, Orbitz usually offers great student discounts for airline tickets. Also don’t forget to search some of the top airlines and compare prices on destinations. They can sometimes honor group rates, so investigate their discounts. Remember that shopping online will always save you money.

And finally compare travel costs from travel agencies against deals that you have found yourself.

3. Travel with a group

Traveling in groups for your student spring break makes very much sense and not only as a good safety precaution. Not only do you get to travel with your friends (The more the merrier, right?), but you can benefit from group discounted deals where you get major student discounts on your spring break packages.

4. Look for the last-minute deals

By waiting for last minute deals you leave more room for negotiating. Within two months of your trip companies are starting to get worried about filling the seat, room, or cabin and will be willing to reduce prices and add bonuses to fill those spots. Many travel companies rely on this fact to get you affordable last minute vacation deals.

5. Sign up for a student discount card

Student Advantage is a company that offers this service. If you purchase a $20 card, which is valid during one year, you automatically save up to 15% on Greyhound purchases, 5-10% on car rentals, and up to $75 off at both Orbitz and Cheap Tickets. And this is not all the benefits. The card is also good for a discount on every day purchases at Target, Macy's, AMC Theaters, Barnes & Noble and several restaurant chains.

6. Call a travel agent

As a rule, the services of travel agents are more expensive, but sometimes they can get you a package deal that you wouldn't be able to find yourself. So why not to ask? Moreover, it won’t cost you a penny. A travel agent will be glad to assist you and may know some special packages that can get your airfare and hotel accommodations at a fantastic spring break travel discount.

7. Stay in the country or travel by boat

Unless you have your heart set on international travel, staying in the US is also a great vacation idea. If you are looking forward to having a trip to the Caribbean or Mexico think about traveling by boat. Taking a cruise ensures that all your meals are paid for, all ports will accept American money and you won't have to pay for expensive international flights.
