About Me:

Born and raised behind the Redwood Curtain of Northern California, I spent my childhood playing in the natural beauty that is synonymous with Northern California. As the middle of 5 kids, my family was not able to travel a lot. As I got older, I was able to venture out to places like Hawaii, New Zealand, Germany and Mexico.

I started working in the travel industry in 1999 at a local travel agency in my hometown of Eureka, California. I moved to Colorado in 2007 and in 2010 as the economy improved, found myself in retail travel again. At the end of 2016, I made the decision to join The Travel Society to allow more quality time with my young daughter.

I currently live in Englewood, Colorado with my spouse and our combined family of four. When we aren’t working on renovating our house, we enjoy road trips, exploring new places and geocaching.

While I love to travel, I truly enjoy helping my clients cross of another item on their bucket list.

About Me:

My bucket-list is always full. Every time I travel to a new destination there is always someplace, somewhere, something new and that I can’t wait to see and experience next.

I have 5 years’ experience selling travel and have been a traveler myself since I was young. My experience has ranged between small mom & pop agencies to big named travel corporations, all the while ensuring that my customers and clients travel needs and wishes are met. I have finally come to the conclusion that to truly give my clients the bespoke travel plans that they need, I must strike out on my own to truly meet my client’s needs. I love to make a connection with my clients, hear their travel stories, and make new memories with them. I have an insatiable yearning to see the world that fuels my own wanderlust. Let me help you with your next travel adventure

About Me:

About Me:

“Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.” To be the best in this business one must have passion. When you partner passion with door-opening relationships and strong “value-adding” partnerships the capabilities become endless. The result is empowering. My passion is simple: Travel. The most rewarding aspect of my job is to successfully define each clients’ adventure and its coinciding luxury and then securing it at the best possible price with the most added value. My specialty is you. I look forward to making your trip the adventure you dream it to be!

Client Testimonials:

“So Meg, we are your customers for life!  In one word – phenomenal.  Curious what exactly you told them about us…for us to get such  royal treatment! ” – Juliet

” Thank you so much for being part of my birthday celebration. The dessert was decadent, chocolate mousse, ridge of dark chocolate fudge, and Oreo crumbles. Delicious!  Meg, over the years you have helped to provide Dan and I with the most amazing adventures. I want to send you a huge…THANK YOU for enriching our lives.”  – Penny

” This trip was one of the single best things that any of us have ever done, and we largely have you to thank for it.  I really appreciate everything you did to help us make this happen.   Thanks so much for putting up with my questions and worries and credit card swaps.  I really appreciate your patience with my total lack of experience.  When we got there, we realized pretty quickly just how streamlined the whole experience is, and we really had nothing to worry about from the moment we walked off the airplane.  Thanks for hooking us up with such a wonderful experience.  I’ll be referring all of my friends your way!  Thanks again.  We’ll definitely call you when it’s time to go back!”   -Jeremiah

About Me:

About Me:

I have been a Travel Agent since 1993.  I book both corporate and leisure travel and have extensive experience booking domestic as well as international travel, including air, hotels and cars, rail, packages, tours and cruises.  I also have valuable experience booking groups for a variety of purposes and to various destinations.  I am a certified Aussie Specialist (Australia) and Kiwi Specialist (New Zealand) as well as an Accredited Cruise Counselor.  I have also obtained my “College of Disney Knowledge” certification, identifying me as a Disney Specialist.  African safaris have become a passion as well, after having gone on one myself in Kenya in 2011.  My very favorite destination, for personal travel as well as booking for clients, is the South Pacific, particularly Australia and New Zealand.  I backpacked through Australia and NZ for a year back in 1990/91 and have returned to Australia three times since.  I returned to New Zealand most recently in April 2009.  I have also attended numerous Aussie & Kiwi Specialist Conventions.  I am very familiar with these countries and am comfortable creating any personalized itinerary there.  I also have an excellent relationship with a wholesaler for Down Under.

Of-course I book many other destinations besides Down Under, particularly Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Disney vacations and cruises.  I also enjoy working with groups such as family reunions, clubs/common interest groups and destination weddings.  I find working with a travel advisor is especially beneficial for groups, having one point of contact and an experienced advisor familiar with group needs and procedures.

Client Quotes:

” Sarah Bender has been the best travel agent I’ve had in a long time. I travel extensively and using her services has been a “no-brainer” for me. Sarah was very quick to pick up on my habits and has always been very thorough in her research of great deals given my expectations of flight times, destinations and pricing. She is very personable, always recommends the best package, while respecting my requirements. Above all, she is

extremely patient in dealing with clients like myself, as I make plans at the very last minute and change itineraries frequently—never once did I ever sense her annoyance. She is my travel agent for both personal and work travels. I have recommended her services to the company I work for and they are extremely happy with her services. Her fees are inexpensive compared to the amount of leg work she does for you. Each time Sarah comes back with a price, I am confident she has done her homework—and that’s what matters—the bottom line!” — Samantha F. Melbourne IT

“ Since April 2000, I have relied on Sarah to make my travel arrangements. She always responds quickly to my questions and requests and is fantastic at keeping all my idiosyncrasies in mind so my itineraries help me to stay sane during my travels.  In complicated trips, she is adept at finding a

reasonable plan that fits my requirements and is at a low price. She is always professional, thorough, and easy to work with. In conclusion, I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, friendly, and extremely competent travel agent.” — Edward K. Dept. Nuclear Physics at University of Colorado
