Our Story

Our Story - TravelSmarts

We began TravelSmarts Luggage & Accessories out of a simple desire to serve travellers. Raised on the Canadian prairies in globetrotting families, the long-time Vancouver area residents and TravelSmarts founders have worked, studied and volunteered in Asia, Europe and Central America. As well, they've explored dozens of countries spanning six continents. Their extensive experience in travel and the tourism industry developed in them a keen understanding of the needs of travellers which led them to found the TravelSmarts on-line store in 2010. Due to local demand in the Greater Vancouver area, TravelSmarts soon opened a retail store in one of Canada's largest shopping centres, Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, British Columbia and became a go-to destination for all things travel. 

We provide a curated collection of luggage and accessories which assists travellers to voyage smarter, safer and more comfortably. We offer a team-oriented work environment that encourages personal growth and development. We count it a privilege to partner with exceptional brands in travel goods; those who have garnered a reputation for quality, thoughtfully designed, innovative luggage, travel accessories, anti-theft bags, business cases, backpacks, wallets and umbrellas. Brands we offer include Briggs & Riley, Eagle Creek, Samsonite, Secrid, Sea to Summit and more. We're grateful for the support of reliable suppliers who enable us to provide quality products to our valued customers. 

We look forward to assisting you as you prepare for your next journey!
