Summer with NUS Extra!
So we’ve had this year’s week of summer weather apparently, but what’s the betting it’ll carry on over the holidays? Well here we’ve got loads of great ways to spend your summer, rain or shine, without spending every last penny. Don’t just go for the ones we’ve found here though, there are stacks more discounts to find from the NUS Extra website – just log in to access them!
Fancy going abroad?
With your NUS Extra card, you’re also entitled to thousands of ISIC discounts abroad as well as those just from NUS Extra! You can look for discounts exactly where you’re planning your hols online at www.isic.org/discounts or even get the new ISIC app to easily find discounts wherever you might be moving around to.
How about a city break in Rome? Hard Rock Cafes are offering up to 20% off your bill, so you can tick off even more spots from your list! You can also get discounted and free entry to museums and art galleries for your culture fix, as well as 50% off drinks at Ice Club Roma if you want some frozen fun! (This place is made completely from ice, btw) You can also save on accommodation after all the adventure, with discounts like 10% off at B&B Hotels, or Vatican Rome apartments.
If staying in one place isn’t your thing, then Interrailing Packages are offering £110 off any of their 2, 3, or 4 week holiday packages for you to tour Europe your way! Wherever you’re planning on exploring though, it’s worth getting travel insurance so that you don’t have to spend your break worrying about anything other than sun cream! Endsleigh offer student travel insurance for 15-20% off with single trip, multi trip, and even gap year and studying abroad insurance packages. These will cover you for things like emergency medical care, airline failures, cancellation costs, and so much more depending on what kind of trip you’re planning.
Staying (relatively) local?
Jump on a train for cheaper with 10% off Cross Country Advance tickets, 25% off Grand Central Advance tickets, and your 1 year 16-25 Railcard available to buy or renew for 12% or an even bigger discount on 3 year Railcards! Or even relive your field trip days with 10% off Megabus online, and 20% off National Express.
Or, you could explore the UK and the rest of the world plate to plate! For a taste of Central and South America, Las Iguanas offers up to 40% off food Sunday to Thursday for up to 6 of you, or weekdays 3-5pm get a regular burrito from Barburrito for a fiver. You could even treat yourself to 50% off a Gourmet Society membership for more 2-for-1 discounts with this bolt-on to your NUS Extra card.
Go Ape is giving you £25 tickets (instead of £33) and Alton Towers has up to 49% off for those wanting even more adrenaline! Party on at the Parklife festival with the NUS VIP weekend ticket, saving you £20, or chill out under the sea with up to 43% off at SeaLife. Whatever you want to get up to over the summer, NUS Extra has got you covered – the only thing they can’t bring is the sun, so keep your fingers crossed!
