More 10 years of history
The ISICWORLD card was first created by students for students in 2000. The decision to create the ISICWORLD card was an International Service & Investment Club of the ASIAN UNION OF STUDENT & YOUTH, supported by ORI ( ORIENT STAR TRAVEL GROUP)- a leading integrated media and commerce company focused on the higher education market. ISICWORLD works with hundreds of colleges, universities and campus organizations, and hundreds of thousands of discount locations worldwide to develop products and services enabling students & youths to make purchases less expensively around campus, around home, around the country, across the world and online. The Company reaches its consumer base offline through the ISICWORLD Card and through its website, www.isicworld.org. ISICWORLD.ORG is a wholly owned subsidiary of The ISEVN Group, Inc.
Originally the ISICWORLD card was a international discount identity card that gave cardholders world access to special discounted airfares. In order to get discounted airfares students bought an ISICWORLD card allowing cardholders to explore the world and discover new countries and cultures. Now, ISICWORLD members can save money near campus, near company, near home and online with ISICWORLD CARD every day on food, travel, school supplies and more.

With more than 10 years of history, It is not long for a new non-profit organisation, but, ISICWORLD a short documentary with key people and the organisation's mission to help youths and students in the past and present, giving real insight in to the ISICWORLD card's unique history and providing a snapshot of the promising future ahead.
A change in focus
ISICWORLD continues to be an internationally discount indentity card recognised proof of member status. However, the growth of discounted airfares online has changed the ISICWORLD card focus. The availability of cheap online flights has led to the decrease in ISICWORLD card sales in the new millennium for simply travel related purposes. Today, the portfolio of benefits and discounts accessible with the ISICWORLD card goes far beyond travel alone. The ISICWORLD card is now also an everyday use member lifestyle card. Cardholders still enjoy discounts and services on travel opportunities. On top of that, members gain preferential access to over 60,000 products, services or experiences in every stage and area of student life, both at home and abroad.
