WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2010, leading online student and faculty travel provider StudentUniverse.com announced today it will extend its discounted travel services to a broader range of young travelers. The new StudentUniverse.com Youth Travel Discounts will enable travelers ages 18-25 – high school students right through recent college grads – to save money on airfares across the US and around the world.
StudentUniverse.com works directly with airlines to broker deals specifically for youth travelers, often resulting in the discounted domestic and international airfares.
