ISIC and London discounts

Getting an ISIC card in preparation for a trip is definitely a good idea. ISIC (International Student Identity Card) is the only student ID that is internationally recognized. With all the discounts available for students, it would be a shame to miss out due to a lack of proper ID. ISIC cards cost $20 plus an additional $10 if you don’t already have a picture that can be used for the card. However, it only takes a couple of uses before the card pretty much pays for itself, so they are definitely worth it. ISIC cards are valid from September to the December of the following year. Even if you have just graduated from school, it may be possible to get an ISIC card if a proof of student status form is shown for that time period.

The following are some places in London where student discounts are offered:

  • Heathrow Express
  • Westminster Abbey
  • Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
  • St Paul’s Cathedral
  • Houses of Parliament
  • The Royal Mews
  • The Queen’s Gallery
  • Tower Bridge Exhibition
  • Tower of London

Not all of the student discounts are listed online, so it doesn’t hurt to ask if there are any available.

Additionally, some of the museums in London are free for everyone:

  • British Museum
  • Tate Modern Museum
  • National Gallery
  • Natural History Museum
  • Science Museum

Happy traveling!
