Huge Savings on Travel in Africa

Travelling in Africa can vary hugely in price with cheap getaways to places like Egypt to long-haul travel to South Africa, but one thing that doesn't vary is that you can get student and youth discounts to help you get there cheaper. With the help of our student flight discounts to Africa you can save on major airlines like Emirates and Virgin Atlantic to places like Cape Town, Nairobi, Dakar and many more. With such a large expanse of space, travel across Africa is normally done by taking flights, but there are also buses and trains equally available, although less pleasant.

Whilst transport costs can be high with the large size of the continent, you can look to save money on accommodation with many cheap hotels and hostels available across Africa. Accommodation standards do however differ significantly depending on which country you're visiting, with those like Egypt and South Africa with a Western influence being much more aligned to British expectations.
