About Me:
I was born to be in the Travel Industry. Travel has been an important in my family ever since I can remember. My Grandma was a world traveler and watching her travel inspired me to travel the world. I took my first trip abroad when I was 14 to Eastern Europe. Ever since then I have been immersed in learning different cultures and seeing different places. Since I love travel so much, I decided to make it my career. After 7 years of working different customer service jobs, I decided to further my studies and attend a Travel School. I am a recent graduate of Penn Foster Travel and Tourism Specialist course. In my studies I learned about, world geography, airline history and guidelines, hotels, cars, railways, tours, cruises, ethics, and much more. I have taken the Travel Agent Proficiency exam through the Travel Institute and am currently TAP certified. I am on my way to becoming a destination specialist of Western and Eastern Europe. Whether you are traveling for business or personal reasons, let me help you have a perfect vacation!

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:

My fascination with travel began while growing up in Venezuela and Thailand. As a member of the Bangkok Aquatic swim team, I traveled throughout Europe and the Far East with my family, falling in love with cities such as Athens, Rome, and Vienna. After a career in customer relations and logistics, I launched my career as a travel advisor, and have found true passion in helping my clients immerse themselves in local culture. My goal is to make sure my clients’ trips are the right fit for them. I enjoy booking travel to New Zealand and Spain, and travel often to Prague, where my daughter is a teacher. I’ve cruised Sydney Harbour in Australia, explored both islands of New Zealand, toured Italy with my three daughters during the Xmas holidays, attended Easter Mass in the Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral in Spain, and driven the northern coast of Ireland from Galway to Dublin. I’ve been lucky to experience several trips of a lifetime, and my goal is to create similar experiences for my clients!

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:

Travel is my passion and planning it to perfection for my clients is what I strive for every day. Whether you are looking for a beach vacation with a flair of local culture or a multi-city tour of Europe or South America. I get down to the details so you can enjoy your vacation rather than planning it while there.

Honeymoons are my favorite! My own to Greece has served as my inspiration. And when couples return again and again asking me to plan their family getaways I know I’ve down my job right.

Destination Weddings can be overwhelming for couples but I alleviate the guess work and manage everyone’s travel arrangements.

Family vacations are close and dear to my heart. As a mother of teenagers I understand the challenges and the rewards of taking time away as a family. The memories you make together are priceless and the kids walk away with a learning experience when you throw some culture and fun into the mix.
Call or email me today and let’s make your dream trip a reality!
