Student cards

Post by Lisak »

Is the place still there (and more to the point, is it open) that does the student cards? (the one behind Sindbads somewhere)

The place is still there but I'm not sure that the Student Card system is still operating.

Yes, it was a right scam years ago 'dodgy-geezeers flogging them for 10le but it gave you 50% off all tombs temples ect well worth it, the guy bore an egyptian resemblance to 'Flash Harry from St Trinians and the issuer was in a tiny shop next the old Venus Hotel..:cool:

Yes it is still open although on the other side of the street behind Sindbads, they have tightened up now on the issue of cards, quite rightly, you need all kinds of documentation to prove either you are a student or a teacher.

The above website for ISIC in Egypt gives no address for a Luxor agent, so it is possible that the office behind the former Egotel/Swiss Inn may have closed. I last visited it in March 2013.

I would advise obtaining a card online of from your local office before travelling.

We got an ISIC card for my 15 year old daughter, which we used frequently. But I was surprised that many places also wanted to see my 13 year old son’s card.
I am an experienced traveler, but a newbie to the Middle East.
