Step 6: Specialty Discounts

If you are a student or senior or have a family, there are plenty of special deals just for you. Visit the specialty sections on our website, or consider these options:

Students and youths:

  • Search for specific deals in SmarterTravel.com's Student section
  • Many student deals are available to persons under age 26, and do not require you to be a currently enrolled student to receive the special discount
  • Look for deals with special student travel agencies such as StudentUniverse.com, STA Travel, and Travel Cuts
  • Check for ongoing airline promotions for students, such as discounts, special fares, and travel vouchers or special coupon booklets
  • If your travel plans are flexible, consider air passes offered by specific airlines that allow students to travel to multiple destinations, or at the last minute, on a space-available basis
  • Look into courier flights, which allow discounted travel in exchange for giving up your checked baggage allowance

Seniors:

  • Search for specific deals in SmarterTravel's Senior section
  • Check for ongoing airline promotions for seniors, such as discounts, special fares, and travel vouchers or special coupon booklets
  • Check if your airline has a special discount for AARP members
  • Ask about companion fares, where seniors can bring along a friend or family member at the senior rate
