10% discount for students and teachers:
A&O Hostels and ISIC Germany expand their partnership

In addition to the International Student Identification Card (ISIC) each A&O Hotel and Hostel accepts both Teacher (ITIC) and Youth Travel Card (IYTC) at the reception.     

A&O HOTELS and HOSTELS offer every cardholder a 10 per cent discount on the daily accommodation rate in all locations of the chain including a free non-alcoholic refreshment drink upon arrival.

The partnership exists since 2012 and is heavily used. Forty-seven percent of all A&O guests are aged between 20 and 29, so they fit in perfectly with the ISIC potential.

"Students are loyal guests: Whenever an A&O opens, it’s backpackers who set out for us first. Over time we have grown and adapted our products to the needs of our guests. Of course, we hereby think of benefits for our most loyal target group, "said Phillip Winter, chief marketing officer of A&O HOTELS and HOSTELS.

The hostel chain is especially popular among backpackers due to its free W-Fi, modern guest kitchens and insider tips provided by receptionists. At each front desk, students share local recommendations, as well as do's and don'ts, to the like-minded.

In 2017 the hostel company also focusses on ISIC teachers and trainees by giving them a discount with their ITIC and IYTC cards.
