Hint: It helps to be a student.
It may be Friday the 13th, but this deal is nothing short of good luck (if you’re in college, anyway). According to the Airfare Spot, Student Universe—the site for exclusive travel discounts for people with student IDs—is offering round-trip flights from major U.S. cities to destinations throughout Europe for as little as $491. Think: New York City to Amsterdam, Boston to Paris, and Washington, D.C. to London.
Student Universe’s policy is that their deals are reserved for students only, though friends and family not holding student status can also be on the itinerary.
Fares are available from September through November (we’re in favor of ditching Thanksgiving Dinner and heading abroad), and in order to get the lowest price possible, you must enter the NEWFOR20 promo code at checkout.
All flights are with IcelandAir, so you should definitely consider a stopover in Reykjavik. The airline lets travelers stay in the country at no extra cost for up to seven days: the perfect excuse to take an epic Icelandic journey.
