If you are a student and coming just for a trip or for a study, you should take your ISIC card with you. You can obtain discounts at a large range of places, including museums (50%), transport (trains, public transport passes, buses, etc.), theatres, cinemas and restaurants where the ISIC card is welcomed. Believe it or not, it will save you a lot of money. Three main travel agents specialise in travel for students and independent travellers: Student Agency (15% off bus travel), GTS and CKM. All offer huge discounts for ISCI cardholders. If you apply in the Czech Republic for an ISIC card, the cost range from 200-400 CZK depending on the amount of insurance offered.
- If you are a party person, you should definitely try some student clubs. Usually, they offer superb value for drinks, and great fun is always guaranteed.
- If you are staying longer, you might find it interesting that mobile phone operators offer a special tariff for students.
- The Wasteels student travel agency on the second floor of the Main train station accepts ISIC cards for discounted train tickets. You can also get significant savings on frequent train travel in the Czech Republic by purchasing an In-Karta card (www.inkarta.cz).
