Student Card

The USIT Student ‘Travelcard’ is the country’s most widely used student ID and discount card which offers exclusive discounts of up to 40% off on Irish Rail, Dublin Bus, DART and LUAS. Despite being called the ‘Travelcard’ this invaluable asset also provides over 200 retail discounts nationwide including Boots, Champion Sports and Meteor and 02 stores as well as many students personal favourite, McDonalds. Aside from these attractive discounts students may also benefit online by using their unique card number for purchases to avail of further savings.

Another reason to invest in this card is for the discounts you can get from the following:

  • Peter Mark
  • Cdwow
  • FAI
  • Topshop
  • Sayit Travel
  • the Lash Bar
  • AIB
  • GAA

The card costs €15.00 inclusive of a €3.00 photo charge and is available to all full time second and third level students. The Student Travelcard has a 16 month shelf life, whereby if bought in September 2010 the card is valid until December 2011 and there is new card produced every September to validate student status. USIT, who produce and control the card’s functions generally try to work on students behalf to ensure both the travel & retail offers are of real value to students and they welcome all suggestions on how to improve our service.

One other point to mention with regard to student cards is that not only is the USIT card a handy tool for discounts in both retail and travel but your college or university’s own card issued each academic year is also an invaluable tool in saving money. Many of the outlets named above and many more which are not will accept any legitimate student card as proof that you are entitled to a student discount. So next time you travel with Bus Éireann or even take a trip to the cinema, remember to present your student card to avail of student rates.
