Explanation on ISIC cards


The Government offers discounts for students and therefore we offer them too. However, the Government (Ministry of Culture) offers these discounts only to owners of ISIC cards validated by them. It is not enough to be a student or to have any ISIC card to benefit from the discount. The Government must accept the card, which will be carefully examined. Our Agency does not decide whether a card is valid or not or whether we apply a discount. We are only following the indications of the Ministry of Culture. That's why we want to explain which card is accepted and which card is refused.Even if we would like to accept all the cards, in the end it is the Ministry of Culture that will decide.
