Well, student discounts are not just in Slovakia, in Czech Republic, many times you can pretend as Czech student with the Slovak ISIC and get a 50% discount in your ticket, In Hungary, students will have discount in the return ticket, meaning that if you go for example, Budapest-Pecs and buy at the same time Pecs-Budapest you will have -60% discount, very useful because trains in Hungary are more expensive than in the previous countries.
Also in Slovakia not all trains are for free: RegioJet, the private owned more modern trains (actually the diference is not huge, since national trains are quite good) offers a -50% discount, but there is no way to get it for free.
Pegasus may be unknown for many people who didn't went anywhere near Turkey, the country where it's based, but this company is one of the most famous and cheapest in Turkey. It connects Europe with Asia with flights with surprisingly low prices, and inter-Turkey flights with prices like 10€.
But there is even a better thing: Everyday, from 4-6 AM (Istambul time) there will be no taxes if you book your flight online, making it even cheaper! Turkey is an amazing country and with Pegasus you have the oportunity to discover it!
I'm going to tell you a small trick to have some extra space in plane cabin (taking it to the seat) in case you ran out of it due to baggage restrictions. Since last years, most companies (such as Ryanair, Wizzair...) allow you to carry a bag from the airport Duty Free shop, and they dont check what is inside and even do not measure it, so you can put clothes, presents, souvenirs in there and you won't have any space problem.
In order to get the bag, you should buy a heavy cheap thing, such a plastic bottle of water and that will do the trick!
Today I will talk about, what in my opinion, is the best membership deal in European airlines. Wizzair offers the possibility of joining the Discount Club, what means that for 30€ per year (you can have it just one year), you and 1 person traveling in the same flight with you will get at least -10€ from the flight price, which in a normal 2 person go/return flight you will already save 10€.
This is specially useful if you are in Central European countries such as Austria, Cz Rep, Poland and specially Hungary (where the airline is based). The destinations are wide too: From Israel to Russia, Turkey, Spain...
But there is even more, if you follow the Wizzair Facebook page oftenly, you will become aware of the offers they make everymonth such as a full 20% discount for members, flights go/return 34€ (Budapest-Tel Aviv for example) and baggage deals.
So, if you plan to travel with Wizzair at least 2 times or with somebody, consider joining the club!
In other times I spoke about those websites that allow you to find the best offer from A to B, today, I came across this site, and works perfectly (even better than rome2rio.com)! Is totally updated and is quite fast, check it out!.
