Student? You may want to bring your School ID abroad

What for? Discounts in points of interest! However, you may not be eligible for discounted fares in public transportation.

When I was in Vancouver, my cousins brought me to the different attractions within the city such as the Vancouver Lookout at the Harbor Centre, Telus World of Science, Capilano Suspension Bridge and many more. Most (if not all) of the attractions in Vancouver offer a student price for admission tickets and definitely you can use your own foreign student ID. Well there is no harm in trying.

I failed once though, that was in the Telus World of Science (Science World). They do accept foreign school IDs; however my ID lacked validation (we still have those boxes at the back of the ID where the registrar can sign) and thus they cannot give me a discounted admission ticket.

Watch out for more tips here at the Newbie Traveller!
