Annie Smits
Account Manager, Tahiti Tiare Specialist

Phone Number: (604) 605-5178

Expertise: Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, New York, London, corporate travel.  Tahiti Tiare Specialist 

Bio: We sometimes call her "travel agent to the stars," because of her celebrity clientele; but really, Annie is our star. She's been with us virtually since the beginning of The Travel Group, and is a big part of the fun atmosphere and high standards of this company. Don't be alarmed at her crazy voicemail messages! A bit of a globetrotter, she has lived abroad in Australia and Greece, but still loves hanging out in her native home, the north shore (Vancouver).

Hobbies:  Movies, photography, skating, swimming (at Whytecliff), entertaining with family & friends, and tracking the career of her talented son.

Travel tips:  Always take out travel insurance.  Pack your suitcase one week before travelling, then remove half of it the day before you leave.  Photocopy all your ID, credit cards, passport, important contact numbers, and leave the info in your suitcase. And finally, I firmly believe that everyone should go to Tahiti at least once in their lifetime - it is heaven on earth!
