Going away as a student can be expensive, but much needed to leave the stresses of university life for a short while.

Don’t miss out on booking a holiday if you feel it’s too expensive – take a look at our best tips for getting cheaper student travel instead.

  1. Find deals on cheap flights

    One of the easiest ways to travel around is on a plane, but sadly flights can be quite expensive!

    Deals on flights come up frequently but you need to know where to find them! Luckily this guide has all the info you need.

  2. Get cheap travel insurance beforehand

    Check out if you need travel insurance and what it will cover on your trip.

    It may seem like a useless expense but trust us, you’ll want to be covered in case of emergencies. Don’t think about just your belongings but also consider that it protects you from any cancellations or even if you get ill.

  3. Try an American summer camp

    If you don’t mind the idea of working a little bit while you’re away you could try working at an American summer camp. It could mean coming back with more money than you left with with a bunch of great experiences too.

    Not sure which is the best American summer camp? Take a look at our summer camp comparison guide to find out!

  4. Claim back refunds on train travel

    Delayed on your train journey? Super annoying. Claiming money back from the cost of your ticket? Clever.

    It’s the law now so claiming has never been easier.

  5. Travel by coach for cheaper journeys

    Always check out and compare coach companies for their prices on the same journey.

    Our guide on cheap coach travel will help you look at different companies so you can look at the deals they have. Some also have cashback offers, so keep an eye out!

  6. Get cheap train tickets

    Again, train tickets are a rip off in our opinion, so getting a deal on the cheapest price possible is ideal.

    Cheap train tickets are the way forward, especially when you grab a railcard or split up your train journey.

  7. Save money on driving

    Having a car at uni can prove to be a bit of a burden on your wallet, as much as it is useful when doing your weekly shop or driving your mates around.

    We show you how to keep your MOT cheap, as well as how to increase your fuel efficiency with our guide on saving money on driving.

  8. Take advantage of cheaper travel money

    Why spend more on travel money than you should? Make sure you’re looking around for the best rate possible to ensure you’ve got more for your money.

    Try looking at the pros and cons of carrying cash abroad – you may have a good rate on it upon landing, but the rates will change too (and may increase).
