INTRODUCING OUR CO-HOSTS

STA TRAVEL

STA Travel Banner

The story of STA Travel starts back in 1979, in a magical era where flares were fashionable and affordable adventures were scarce. The location was Oz (not the magical one with the wizard, the Australian one) where two young students had just returned from their travels, slightly jet-lagged but inspired by the planet and the people they had met. The idea was to bring affordable flights and worldly adventures to other students, young people and explorers. The result was STA Travel.
