What Does It Mean To Be a smarTraveler?

Since 1996, the team at smarTours has worked tirelessly to make high quality international travel affordable, and we have been fortunate to have so many loyal members of the smarTours community. We want to make sure that our most consistently active clients (smarTravelers, as we call them) are rewarded for their loyalty. smarTravelers are clients who have traveled frequently, referred us to friends and family, and have been vocal about their great trips. As a smarTraveler, you will be entitled to a variety of benefits that will make your journeys with smarTours all the more enjoyable. Apply here!

What are the smarTraveler Perks?

Room Upgrades / Other Hotel Perks

In an effort to reward your dedication to smarTours, you will receive room upgrades or other hotel perks (when available) at select hotels around the world. Note: if extra perks are not provided in at least one hotel during your trip due to lack of availability, smarTravelers can notify smarTours and receive a $100 credit off their next trip if it’s clear that the perks were not delivered.

Skip to The Front of The Line

Quite often, the most popular smarTours trips on the best dates with the best prices sell out quickly, and a waiting list develops. In order to give priority to our smarTravelers , you will be able to pass everyone else on the waiting list (except other smarTravelers) to increase the likelihood of gaining a spot on your desired smarTours departure.

Exclusive smarTours News

smarTraveler members will become part of an exclusive mailing list that receives advanced notice on special deals and new destinations before anyone else.

Priority Phone Service

smarTravelers will receive priority phone service so that our customer service team can answer any questions or concerns you may have as quickly as possible.

January 26 & 27, 2019, Join us at The New York Times Travel Show! smarTours will supply free guest passes to the first 100 smarTravelers who contact us, and you will also enjoy an exclusive cocktail hour with other smarTravelers.
