Why travel with us?

The world's largest student and youth travel company

STA Travel started out back in 1979 with just one mission: to create affordable adventures for awesome humans. Since then we've launched apps, award-winning film projects, digital music platforms and pioneered charity campaigns. We've crossed borders to push boundaries, walked unfamiliar paths to find new friends, and got lost to discover the places we love.

We've done all these things, but our philosophy has never changed. We're still the place to #StartTheAdventure. And now, it's your turn.

we know because we go

We travel, therefore we are

Here's how we see it. If you're going to book a trip, you should book with travelers. Our Travel Experts are worldly-wise, well-traveled and can pack a 60 liter backpack in two minutes flat.

We are 24/7/365

We know how important it is to feel safe on the road. That's why we're online and on the phone 24 hours a day to help resolve issues quickly, so that you can get back on with the fun stuff.

We dream big and think local

We've been trusted by travelers for over 40 years. We work with the world's leading airlines, touring partners and ground handlers to create experiences that are real, authentic and responsible.

We make a STAnd together

We're about exploring, not exploiting. That's why we've partnered with the Born Free Foundation to enforce an industry-leading animal welfare policy across all of our suppliers' tours and activities; and joined forces with teen cancer charities on a global campaign to help raise awareness and vital funds for young people living with cancer.
