The story of STA is as follows, two young students had just returned from their travels, slightly jetlagged but on the biggest high of their lives. Inspired by the planet, the people they had met and the places they had seen, they set out on a mission to bring affordable flights and worldly adventures to other students, young people and explorers. The result was STA Travel.
