Did you know: When the Kettle Valley Railway arrived in 1915, West Summerland (BC) was formed and when Highway 97 moved up to the plateau in 1955, the “West” was dropped and the entire area was then called Summerland.

Regine Barry
Senior Counsellor & Client Manager


Phone Number: (604) 605-5179

Expertise:  Corporate travel & Club Med

Bio: Born & educated in Austria, Regine started her travel career in 1984 and has been with us since 1994.  She studied at Hotel & Tourism College in Austria, and travelled extensively around Europe.  In 1985 Regine moved to Canada, the "land of opportunity", working for two years in the "Nanny" immigration program, before returning to the travel industry.  She has been with us since 1984, and considers "The Travel Groupies" her second family (after her husband and dog, and not necessarily in that order.)

She likes the challenges and quick pace of corporate travel, but also loves her clients and enjoys helping them organize the perfect trip, business or vacation. Since being with The Travel Group, she has travelled to Costa Rica, Hawaii, Thailand, Bali Indonesia, Jamaica, Domincan Republic, Turkey, China, Egypt, and Ireland.  She's cruised the Caribbean, and loves Club Med, which she insists on visiting once a year (4 down, 94 to go!)

Favourite place: The golf course!  And golf course, anywhere.  But if she has to pick a place it would be  a toss-up between Thailand, Turkey, or Egypt.  (And she's more than willing to add more to this list!)

Hobbies: Walking her dog, golfing, camping, and - of course - travelling!

Travel tips: Always take a change of clothes in your carry-on, just in case your bags wind up in Timbuktu.
