STA Travel – 0844 248 2603

STA Travel was first founded in 1976 by Dick Porter and a fellow student who had just returned from around the world trip. The business became STA Travel in 1979. It expanded into several different countries and by 2013, there were STA Travel branches in 12 countries. In 2014, the Student Travel Association name was disbanded and the acronym STA now stands for ‘Start the Adventure’ so that the company is more open to people over the age of 26.
