StudentUniverse, the world’s leading student and youth travel booking site, has announced that it has expanded into Canada. The launch is the latest step in the brand’s global expansion plans, following a successful launch into Australia in 2019
Part of Flight Centre Travel Group’s overall expansion plans and efforts to strengthen its online presence globally, StudentUniverse’s Canadian launch will give young travellers across the country the ability to easily access student and youth-only flight deals online.
Commenting on the brand’s decision to launch in Canada, StudentUniverse’s Managing Director, Mike Cleary said:
Canada is one of the fastest growing study abroad destinations, so it makes sense for us to be there – particularly at a time when students are looking for great value, 24-hour support, and an ability to get home.
We’re very excited about our entry into Canada and we look forward to bringing our superior online experience and exclusive deals to this important region.
StudentUniverse’s expansion also demonstrates an ongoing commitment in supporting UK inbound travel from the destination, whilst at the same time providing discounted travel deals to UK students looking to study abroad.
This growth showcases our belief in a bright future for not only StudentUniverse but for the entire student and youth travel sector which like many established travel businesses, have been pushed to the limit as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
StudentUniverse has always been an advocate for students and the entire youth sector, believing in the value young travellers’ input to the destinations they visit. International Students are also a critical component of the UK economy, contributing an estimated £25bn and supporting over 200,000 jobs.*
StudentUniverse, which offers exclusive flight and travel deals to the student and youth markets, launched in the United States in 2000, and has fast become a leading player in the student travel sector. Following expansion into the United Kingdom in 2013, the brand was acquired by Flight Centre Travel Group (FLT) in 2015 and has since seen consistent business growth.
