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:

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

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.

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

About Me:

About Me:

Because I go beyond my clients expectations, respond promptly to their requests, and  am committed to finding the best destination based  on their requests and budget,  I have developed a lifelong relationship with many of my clients.  When they return home, they share with me the memories they made on their vacation.   I love planning destination weddings for my brides and their family and friends and in return they refer more brides to me for their destination wedding/honeymoon/destination wedding proposal and bachelor and bachelorette party.  My love for travel and geography has kept me in the industry for 23 years.  I guarantee the best possible price even if it involves price matching and I do not charge a planning fee.  My personal philosophy is “If you love what you do, you never work a day in life!”  I love to travel!

Client Testimonials:

“We want to thank you for your help in planning our excellent trip to Hawaii. We had a perfect honeymoon-many thanks to you. We think we got an amazing deal for everything we received. We were most impressed with the condo you selected. We loved the location. We have never been to Kauai and this condo was centrally located so we could easily travel all over the island. It was right on the beach and we even had a huge balcony looking out into the ocean 100 feet from us. The condo itself was much nicer than we had expected.Thank you as well for giving us the choice to upgrade our cruise cabin with a window. We really enjoyed having the window. Thank you as well for letting us know that the interisland fares were increasing and giving us the opportunity for purchasing the tickets at the lower price.Thank you for everything. We will recommend you and use you again in the future.”    – Christy and Scott Sharkey

“Two years ago before our honeymoon, my wife and I were handed two different travel agents business cards. We’re so happy one of them was Doris Mundy. She recommended, planned and booked what turned out to be the best trip of our lives. Today we include Doris in all our travel discussions almost as if she is part of the family. We called her before we took a quick weekend to Las Vegas and we called her to plan a two week long vacation to Greece. She’s knowledgeable, easy to work with, and she always delivers fantastic, memorable vacations.  I have recommended her to every friend and family member planning any trip and they always return elated and eager to call Doris to plan their next trip.”  –  Matt Lenertz,  Denver CO

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.
