What should I know about STA Travel?

How do I make a STA Travel booking?

To book with STA Travel, simply visit their website by clicking on any of the links provided.

When you’re there select whether you want to book flights, hotels, or extras, then input your destinations and travel dates, being sure to add on if you are a teacher, student or under 26 as you may qualify for additional discounts.

After that select the service you wish to book, input your payment information and wait for your confirmation email.

How can I get STA Travel booking confirmation and my tickets sent to me?

After your booking has been made, STA Travel will send you a confirmation email with your booking details within 24 hours.

If you do not receive an email within that time, you should contact their customer service team. For most of their bookings your tickets will also be emailed to you, or any hotel reservations, so don’t worry about having anything delivered or mailed.

It is usually handy for you to print your email confirmation or electronic ticket and take a copy with you to the airport or hotel of your booking.

What forms of payment does STA Travel accept?

  • MasterCard
  • Visa

Does STA Travel offer layby flights?

Yes.  You can layby domestic flights from $29 and international flights from $99. Layby flights cannot be booked online, so you'll need to go to an STA Travel store or call them on 134 782.

Can I book multi-city or around-the-world tickets?

To book a multi-city itinerary, you can select the "Multi-City" option on the flight booking engine that should appear above the destination fields. Clicking this will bring you to an advanced search page where you'll need to select "Multi-City" again". Next, choose how many flights you'll need to take. (You can book up to four). Enter in all your flight details and click search.

STA Travel has a dedicated "Round The World" section, however most can't be booked online, and will need to be booked in-store or over the phone.

Can STA Travel help me with visas?

STA Travel can assist with both tourist and work visas, but it does charge a processing fee that is added on top of the embassy's fee.

Do flights include baggage?

Since STA Travel doesn't own the airlines, baggage inclusions are at the airline's description. Most full-service airlines (like Qantas, Singapore Airlines and British Airways) will include baggage in the initial ticket price. Low-cost carriers (like Jetstar, Tigerair and AirAsia) do not include bags.

What is the STA Travel cancellation policy?

It is possible to cancel your booking, however, you will almost certainly pay a portion of your total amount as a fee. This will vary depending on your booking. Contact the STA Travel customer service team for full information on your booking.
