Student Flight's top stories of 2016

Published December 1st, 2016

Taking a moment to reflect on our most popular travel stories of 2016 and boy was it a year for travel. There was Croatia gaining speed on its neighbouring Greek Islands looking to claim the title of best summer sailing spot.

Then there was your infatuation with different undiscovered bodies of water resulting in two of the highest rated stories on this top 10 list.

We covered bucket list adventures and round-the-world packing tips, how NOT to be the group tour douche bag and how to get around Asia for under a thousand bucks. It’s all in there, the top 10 stories of Student Flights for 2016.

Celebrating the year that was means it's time for an end of year blow out sale of the best travel from 2016! And we're kicking it off with our Black Market $499* return flights to Asia, uh huh honey.
