ITIC identifies you as a full-time teaching professional around the world. Since 1984 ITIC has been helping teaching professionals get more out of their international travels through a worldwide network of special discounts, services and other benefits, such as restaurants and retail shops; entry prices to museums, cultural and historic sites; bus, coach, train and ferry tickets; and accommodation such as hotels and hostels.

The ITIC network includes the world’s leading specialists in independent travel. Thousands of offices in over 40 countries provide products and services that have been developed especially for independent travellers’ budgets and interests. In Finland, the student-priced flights are sold to teachers with ITIC by KILROY.

Endorsed by UNESCO

The ITIC card has been endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1968. ITIC is also supported by the European Council on Culture and the Andean Community of Nations. The card is recognized by universities, academic institutions, student unions, national governments, financial institutions and ministries of education around the world.
