International Student Identity Card

International Student Identity Card

The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is a photo identification card that identifies the holder as a full-time student. It currently is the only such form of identification that is internationally recognized. (Though not accepted at many establishments as proof of age.)

Cardholders gain access to special discounts with many companies, particularly on travel-related services such as airplanes, buses, trains, ferries, and rental cars. Other discounts are for museums and cultural sites, various attractions and entertainment, hostels and hotels, and bars and restaurants. As a guide price, cards cost $22 in the US or £9 in the UK. In the United States, cards come with international travel/medical insurance, hence the increased cost.

The card is issued by the ISIC Association, which describes itself as "an international, not-for-profit membership association of the International Student Travel Confederation (ISTC)." [http://www.aboutistc.org/isic/] The ISIC Association reports that it has issued almost 45 million ISIC cards since the early 1960s. [http://www.aboutistc.org/isic/card.html]

ISIC is endorsed by UNESCO.
