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.

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 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'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.
