Hey all
Me and buddy lee it seems have both stumbled upon this site and found some outrageous good deals, I found a trip too oz one way for 650 while he found a flight to london for 220, is this place legit cuase when I compare them too sites like expedia or orbitz they all go for about 12-1500. Does anyone know about this site or have I just stumbled upon a holy grail of budget flying ???

If I remember correctly, a lot of the prices on StudentUniverse are legit, but by the time you go through all the screens and try to confirm, a lot of the flights are unavailable/sold out/etc. Still, from what I understand, you can get some great deals from them. If you're of student age, also check out some of the deals from STA Travel.

Unfortunately, I've gotten too old for that stuff

They are a legit site. I bought a ticket from them back in 2002 for a trip to Europe and got an excellent deal. I can't remember if the price they show you is with tax included or not. When you do register with them, you have to put in your university e-mail address since the deals are supposed to be only for students and teachers, but they still allow me to log into the site even though I graduated over a year ago.

From what I have seen, you can get tickets for the same price or even cheaper through sites like Orbitz. I don't know if Student Universe checks on your student status, but one of the requirements when filling out your information is to give them your school e-mail address.
