Unfortunately there no easyJet student discount. That means no student promo code through Unidays, NUS Totum or Student Beans. However, students can still get free 23kg baggage allowance when you book as part of an easyJet holiday bookings (ie you book your hotel too with easyJet). Considering that this can be up to £74.98 per person on a return flight it can be a significant saving.

To summarise the three best ways for students to save are by booking an easyJet holiday because:

  • Free 23kg baggage allowance
  • All-inclusive holidays from £299
  • Low deposits from £60

The Google results can be confusing as there is talk of a 6% NUS discount. However, this was from 2013 and is no longer valid.

1. DOES EASYJET DO STUDENT DISCOUNT?

As explained in the introduction, there is currently no easyJet student discount in the UK. This means that there is no student code available through Unidays or any other student discount scheme in the UK that students can regularly use to get a discounted cheap flight with easyJet.

However, students can still save by following the money-saving tips at the top of the page.

2. UNIDAYS EASYJET

We can confirm that there is currently no Unidays easyJet code. We checked on my myunidays.com and this no-frills airline is not listed.

This is a shame as it would be great if easyJet could arrange this.

It’s because there is no easyJet student discount, but to be fair there are few airlines and holidays companies who do have a discount. If this changes Student Discount Squirrel will let you know.

There are some other student discount schemes in the UK and we checked to see if they offer a discount code.

NUS TOTUM AND EASYJET

At the moment there is no NUS easyJet discount.

We checked on the NUS site and unfortunately, they are not listed. There used to be a 6% NUS code but that ended a long time ago (although it’s still listed on Google).

Did you know that to get NUS discounts you need a Totum card now?

STUDENT BEANS AND EASYJET

Student Beans is a rival student discount scheme to Unidays.

However, there is no Student Beans code for easyJet.

If this changes we’ll let you know.

3. EASYJET PROMO CODES, VOUCHERS + DISCOUNT CODES

So as we have established there isn’t a permanent easyJet student discount code like there is for ASOS for instance.

However, the Student Squirrel has been doing some research and sometimes there are easyJet voucher codes that you can use at the online checkout to get money off your flights and holidays. They are not just for students, anyone can use them.

We will list any valid ones at the top of the page and in the table below

EasyJet Student Discount Deals Discount Expires
Free 23kg baggage allowance with easyJet holidays Free baggage 30/07/2020
Deposits from £60 £60 31/12/2020
All-inclusive holidays from £299 £299 30/07/2020

4. EASYJET SALES

One of the best ways for students to save is during the easyJet sales. These happen throughout the year including:

  • January sales
  • Summer sales
  • Mid-October

Also, there are certain dates that new tickets are released and these are usually the cheapest time to book. This includes:

  • Now on sale for up to October 2020
  • April 2020 for up to March 2021

This is one of the best ways that students can get cheap easyJet flights and we will always list any sales in our introduction.

5. MORE ABOUT THE AIRLINE

EasyJet was arguably the innovators in the low-cost, no-frills airline industry and have essentially revolutionised the way that us Brits use air travel domestically, through Europe, and beyond. Famed for their bright orange branding, over-enthusiastic founder and entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou, and its various reality TV series’.

EasyJet’s mission is “to make travel as affordable as a pair of jeans” and so they lower as many of their operating costs as they are able to (without compromising on safety and relevant legal obligations, of course) to make the end fee for their flights cheaper than its competitors. This approach has now been adopted by hundreds of low-cost air operators worldwide.

You won’t find long-haul destinations served by easyJet, but they’re ideal for short city breaks or European travel trips; serving 136 destinations across the continent. They have base airports in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and Italy. The largest easyJet presence you’ll find is at London Luton Airport, where the company’s headquartered, known as ‘EasyLand’ is based. The majority of the budget flyer’s destinations are in Europe, but they also now serve Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Turkey.

Of course, as a student, you’re never expected to be planning thousand-pound holidays with your spare student loan, but it’s nice to have something to look forward to after the stress of exams, assessments and coursework, isn’t it? EasyJet gives you the opportunity to explore the continent for short breaks and city trips at a fraction of the cost of a package holiday. Sort some budget accommodation, grab a friend, and off you go!

EasyJet is already pretty cheap, so it’s no surprise that there’s no ongoing student discount. However, the airline is famed for its flash sales that reduce flight fees down to just a few pence – plus taxation and baggage fees, of course. Student Discount Squirrel often can give you advance notice of these sales events, so check back here for the inside track on when and where you can expect to find cheaper routes, and sometimes, where to! There are not many adventures bigger than picking a city name you like the sound of and going… who knows where you might end up?

HISTORY

Stelios Haji-Ioannou launched easyJet back in 1995, using two leased aeroplanes to fly routes from London Luton Airport to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Raising enough money through these routes to buy his first plane, he took delivery of it in 1996 and launched a new route to Amsterdam.

As the airline gained popularity and customers, it grew rapidly and made several acquisitions to extend its reach even further. This saw the brand launched easyJet Switzerland and easyJet Europe, as well as diversifying into related travel entities include Easy Hotels, Easy Car Hire and easyJet Holidays. If travellers choose to, they can essentially now manage their entire trip within the easyJet group of companies.

Between 1999 and 2007, as the company strived to compete with the likes of Ryanair, the reality TV show ‘Airline’ was launched, giving a behind-the-scenes view of the company’s operations and its staff. The programme was lauded for not always being positively spun in the firm’s favour but forgiving and honest – and often gripping – account of life in the airport and airline industry, with many staff members being featured becoming popular with the viewing public. The series gave easyJet a competitive advantage over other low-cost airlines and secured it as a household name throughout the UK.

Today, easyJet has been sold on to the FL Group, who own several airlines, but Stelios Haji-Ioannou remains at the helm. The company continues to add routes periodically and its profits and revenues are on the rise. Budget air travel is definitely here to stay and having pioneered it, easyJet lead by example still.
