I've booked many plane ticket for international travel through Student Universe and their discounts are usually unmatchable by anyone else. Last time I booked through Student Universe was to get tickets for a roundtrip from NYC to London for new years eve, and the ticket prices were as listed.
avoid students websites
I would personally stay clear from websites such as Student Universe and Sta Travel who are aimed at students. These companies are really fraudulent and pray on many student's naivety when it comes to be internet savvy. Just check reviews on them and you'll be amazed the amount of complaints they receive.
shop around for airfare
Students are no different to other budget travelers...im a budget traveler myself and what I do it's a fair amount of shopping around when it comes to buying airfare. Time and time again, I've found the best deals from Student Universe, though it's a matter of looking around.
to any students out there...student websites aren't on the side of students. Many of these websites need to be investigated for fraud because they are ripping off a lot of students and I for one is more than just alittle upset about it!
avoid peak travel seasons
I second that natalieross! Spring break is a good example of a ripe time for students to be ripped off and most students are clueless to it all. From expensive flight tickets, hotels, etc. The bottom line is that if you're traveling during a peak season of travel you will find it hard-pressed to get cheap airfare!
