About Me:
I look forward to working with you to create a dream vacation within your budget. One of my passions is planning beach vacations as I grew up five houses from the ocean and the beach was my sandbox. I experienced the beauty of the sand and the sea and have been to many beach resorts in Mexico, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Costa Rica and Fiji. Consequently, I can guide you in choosing the right beach destination for you. I also enjoy developing itineraries for stunning ocean and river cruises, tours and packages to Europe, Alaska and other havens of your choosing. I’ve been a travel advisor since 1989 and have been working independently with The Travel Society since 1993. I have traveled extensively and have knowledgeable contacts that are experts in many locations. I am detailed oriented and pursue perfection as client retention and referrals are paramount to me.

About Me:

As an RN turned travel advisor and with over 40 years of traveling as a military dependent, I have developed a passion not only for travel but to help others plan their own expeditions to new and exciting destinations. I have lived in Canada, multiple states within the USA, Germany, Cambridge England, Ville Franche, France, and South Korea, and have traveled far beyond each of these destinations while living abroad. While living in South Korea, I coordinated China trips for groups while running an export business from Beijing. While living in Germany,England, and Korea my travels were extensive. Once back in the USA I continued to help arrange private customized tours to Beijing China, as well as assisting families with Disney vacations, ‘Land and Sea’. As a part of the Covington Travel family I have been honored to orchestrate travel for clients to exciting destinations like Hawaii, the Caribbean, Alaskan cruisetours, everything Disney, Costa Rica, Scotland, Poland, France, England and beyond. I am honored to have joined the team at Covington Travel and assist clients with their upcoming travel plans near and far.

About Me:

About Me:

In 2011, I officially joined Susie McKenney to become Travel with Susie and Addie; an independently owned and operated travel agency in association with The Travel Society. Growing up I spent countless hours at the travel agency where my mother, Susie McKenney, established herself as a corporate and leisure travel consultant within the Boulder community. After over 20 years of travel influence and experiences, I graduated college with a business degree and joined The Travel Society. Together we specialize in Luxury, Leisure and Spa destination travel, as well as International and Domestic Corporate travel.

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

“People ask me constantly… ‘Why do you use a travel agent?’…. I don’t, because Tamera Hoyt is no ordinary travel agent, she is a business partner!

I can’t imagine attempting to do what she does, on my own. For the past ten years I have never been disappointed, never been “stuck”, and NEVER had to talk to an airline… because she is such a professional… we now use her for all of our family travel as well!”

About Me:

About Me:

I have been in the Travel industry for over 30 yrs. I had managed a Travel Agency for over 17 yrs with 5-6 employees. When the internet and airlines started to be aggressive to book on-line, I got out of the travel industry and sold supplemental insurance. People kept asking me to get back into booking travel, so I did, and opened up a store front office location for clients to come in and book their trips. Clients kept telling me, “It’s about time!” so this is how I came up with the name About Time Travel. I do all kinds of travel, from Corporate to Leisure, Groups & Independent. I am very strict with detail, and customer service! I go out of my way to help clients.
