Get the Most from your International Flight Ticket with a Stopover

If you are traveling to many international destinations from the United States, chances are you will have to change planes along the way. Why not take full advantage of our exclusive student ticket stopovers and visit your connection city en route to or from to your main destination?

By opting for a stopover you get to explore a city you were going to pass through anyway. It's like two plane tickets for the price of one!
Where are stopovers allowed?
Stopovers can only occur if the city you want to visit is a natural transit point for the airline or alliance you want to fly to your main destination. So if you want to see Lisbon on your way to Rome, look for tickets on TAP Portugal. Want to see Bangkok on your way to Singapore? Ask for our tickets on Thai Airways. Most airlines consider a stopover as a stay of at least 24 hours or longer in a city.

Check out this chart for some inspiration and ideas on all of the great cities where you can take advantage of a free stopover. Do note that some fares and routes don't allow stopovers, so speak with an STA Travel Expert for more details.
