The travel industry certainly has changed quite a bit since I was a student traveler. As a child, I remember having to call or visit a travel agent, sit in their office as your trip is planned, and having a ticket in hand before you left that couldn't get reprinted without some form of service fee.
All that being said, there is still so much that hasn't changed as a result. Among those things that haven't changed are baggage limitation and fees, and what to do in the midst of a trip delay or cancellation. After seasoning my travel abilities over the past 10 years, I've learned so much more about how to manage and make my travels easier - tips that I wish I had as a 19-year-old student traveler, who could barely manage to catch the right flight on time.
In the latest edition of the Travel Insure blog, I've taken some time to reflect back on my student travels - and what advice I would give to my younger self if I could go back in time. Click here to read the blog in it's entirety, and my advice for future (and past) student travelers.
