What should I do if I wish to use ISIC discounts next year as well?
The ISIC card license is renewed with a revalidation stamp made on the basis of an order placed via InSIS (just for sure, as a reminder, we always notify about it in advance by e-mail with a link). The actual sale of stamps always starts in the autumn – notice of the start of the sale is sent by mass email, which then always specifies the exact starting date of the sale and also the price of revalidation stamp.
Can I extend my ISIC even though I have not ordered a revalidation stamp?
Revalidation stamps are delivered in limited quantities based on your order, but there is always a small amount of stamps left (for example, after those who have finished or interrupted their studies), which we then sell in the so-called free sale usually starting late November (the exact date is usually posted on the bulletin board in front of the Administration of ID Cards). The second option is, of course, obtaining a brand new ISIC card, including the current license, which is, however, at the full price.
