“We are proud to work with Albatross Cars – who consistently put student’s best interests first, offering a unique student safety scheme and fantastic app for ease of use and great service. We recently found out that they are now part of an international network, meaning students can use the app whether they’re home for summer or sunning themselves in another country. ”


We are regularly giving out free taxi vouchers, restaurant vouchers, tickets to every Derby County Football Club home game and much more on our social media channels so make sure you're following us for all the latest competitions
