The holiday season is often synonymous with joy, family gatherings, and warmth. Yet, for many students pursuing their dreams away from home, it can be a time tinged with longing, especially for Latino/e students accustomed to the warm embrace of their, often, multigenerational households. However, this year, there’s hope for students living away from home! And the Cuban descent entrepreneur, Jeff Bezos, may be behind it. After all, his company, Amazon, is stepping in to reunite families this holiday season.
With an exclusive offer for Prime Student members, StudentUniverse is facilitating travel to and from home for the holidays, offering a limited number of flights starting from $25. This initiative arrives just in time for students yearning to celebrate the festive season with family and friends.
How Is Amazon Helping Students with Their Holiday Travel?
The process is simple: Prime Student members need to sign into their Amazon accounts and seek flights within the US departing from December 8 to December 25, and returning (if applicable) from December 8 to January 14. Opt for a flight itinerary with a single traveler and, if necessary, select itineraries over $500, discounted to $25 plus the amount exceeding $500. Given the limited availability of these discounted tickets each day — starting December 5 for three days — it’s advisable to secure bookings promptly.
This exclusive offer extends to Prime Student members, granting them access to flights at up to 10 percent off at the time of booking and an enticing 10 percent back on hotels in the form of an Amazon.com Gift Card after the hotel stay. Additionally, members benefit from premium customer support with every booking, ensuring a seamless travel experience.
StudentUniverse, the platform orchestrating this travel opportunity, is renowned for its student-focused approach, providing affordable travel options tailored to students’ needs. With hidden fares and unique pricing negotiated with over 220 airlines, it aims to alleviate the financial burden of travel for students. The platform also offers a 24-hour risk-free cancellation policy for most flights, allowing flexibility in travel plans.
This initiative underscores Amazon’s commitment to supporting students, particularly during times of celebration and connection. As the holiday spirit permeates, the opportunity to reunite with loved ones becomes not just a possibility but an affordable and accessible reality for students across the country.
