where everytrip is different

“1896 Travel – we’re all about the experience”
– Aaron Kok, Founder

Our History:
1896 Travel’s journey started in 2010 as the first boutique sports travel agency in ASEAN. Over the years, we have grown into a regional travel agency with 7 distinct travel experiences. By being part of The Experiences Firm, we focus on what we enjoy doing most – creating different trip experiences.

Our Philosophy:
At 1896 Travel and The Experiences Firm, we find joy in crafting customised travel experiences for our clients. We believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to travel and so, we build itineraries from scratch based on your vision of a trip. Instead of being dragged around on tours for tours’ sake, we want our clients to go on memorable trips that will leave a lasting impression of the destination. We find that the best way to do this is to combine special interests, passions or objectives, be it sports, food, art or anything really, with travel.

Our Services:
We dare you to dream up your ideal trip, filled with all things you want to do. With expertise, knowledge and experience, our dedicated travel consultants will work closely with you to design custom itineraries based on your objectives and preferences.
With meticulous attention to detail, we will ensure that all your travel requirements such as destination, hotels, flights, ground transportation and unique activities are suited to your needs and preferences. Hence, no two trips are ever the same. Our ever-striving desire for perfection produces an unparalleled coordination and seamless execution in all our projects.
So let us know if you are a foodie or an adrenaline junkie or a sports fanatic? Do you want a leisurely vacation or an exciting adventure? Are you planning a retreat for employees or a learning journey for students? 1896 Travel and The Experiences Firm will design a trip for you, with you in mind!
