Keeping Travel Costs Down
Being a student often means great discounts on travel. That's another reason why your college years are a great time to go abroad! A local travel agent can also help you with your travel arrangements, but be aware that most will charge a fee for their services.
The internet is another place to find great travel deals. If you are in doubt about a particular travel company or service, you can consult your study abroad advisor. Although we don't know everything about all of the travel services out there, we do have a good network of reliable programs and websites that we trust.
