"My best memory will always be the way I became an employee of SmarTravel. I was on vacation at a SmarTravel property in May 2006 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I met my husband right there on the beach! By August, he had proposed to me. I started working at SmarTravel in July and the following June we were married. In February 2009 we welcomed our first child together. You can’t find a better story!" - Nikkia, Account Management

Offering Ways to Share the Spirit of SmarTravel:

Employee Sponsored Charities

  • Every month an employee or group of employees champions a charity that means something specific to them. Throughout the month there are different fundraising events to raise money for the charity. Silent auctions, bake sales, "jeans day," "crazy sock day," and "crazy hat day" are among some of the examples of events that employees have paid to participate in. Not only do the events raise money but employees get to have fun while doing it.
