About us

Our story

"We exist to enable you to travel the world, your way."

We've been there. Y'know, the Instagram screenshots, Google map pins, 42 Google tabs, group chats, and travel spreadsheets. Let's face it - so have you (or the designated planner of every trip that you've ever done - if you're one of the ones who just rocks up with your bags) - and it's not pretty.


It's time to change that.

The word 'Travel is' merging together to become Travis

Travis makes it easy for you to discover curated travel guides and stories by our community, moodboard and plan your next trip in one place - whether you're uncovering hidden gems within your own borders, or travelling to the next COVID-safe country.

"The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."
