[quote=“Bao_Lisha”]Thanks Craig. I think it’s the travel agent that offers student discount, not the airlines. It was agents who can do ISIC discounts I was interested in and such things certainly still exist.
We’re going to Korea en route to Germany, not Japan, so that’s not an issue.
Yup, I will be shopping around whatever, but it’s not really feasible to buy a stopover ticket on-line and, unlike the UK where there are travel agents on every high street, I don’t come across that many here. Actually, apart from one I passed in Tianmu, I don’t know any!
So anyone?? Travel agent recommendations??[/quote]
My point is that vendors offer lots of discounts. In my experience, aside from hostel-style accommodations or some group arrangements, there isn’t a “student discount”. The arrangement you are talking about is a travel agent who is kicking back some of their commission, and they might do it for students, senior citizens, veterans, AAA members or about any group of people whose business they are seeking. You would be better served to broaden your search and just look for the cheapest price.
You can in fact do itineraries online that have stopovers. There are usually options for one-way, round-trip and multi-stop. Choose multi-stop.
As for travel agent recommendations, I did a search here using the key words “travel agent” and found a 17 page thread that includes recommendations from forum members. You can find the thread at:
