My 13yo daughter and I are travelling to Europe for the first time this summer. Obviously, she is a student or a youth; I am a teacher. Is there any advantage to purchasing the International Student Identity Card/teacher one? They have travel insurance and the fees looked to be quite good if the insurance is any good. I wasn't sure if they offered discounts that might be truly worthwhile or not. We are spending 4 days in Budapest, 2 weeks in Novi Sad (Serbia) and 3 days in London (seems strange I'm sure--going for a ballet intensive in Serbia). Does anyone have any experience with this?
Also, if you buy the additional trip interruption/cancellation service, how do you value things? Our tickets to/from Europe are on FF miles from dad. I have pre-paid for a hotel in Budapest won in a bid on priceline; there is the cost of the workshop and lodging; also the flights to London and then to Amsterdam to catch our last leg out of Europe and those have already been paid. I just wasn't sure how to put a value on the FF portions--if we had to reschedule, there would certainly be a fee (especially if it's an interruption). Anyone else had to do this?
Thanks for any feedback.
