About Covington Travel
Celebrating Fifty Years in Business
Covington Travel began as a two-person travel agency in Richmond, Virginia in 1967, and has grown to be in the top one percent of travel management companies in the United States.
Josée Covington, President & CEO, established the company with the intent of upgrading the travel experience for all travelers, no matter where or why they journey. As a native of Luxembourg and naturalized U.S. citizen, Josée is fluent in five languages and is a world-wide traveler.
In celebration of 50 years in business, Covington credits the travel agency’s growth to the hard work and dedication of its employees. “Nobody is ever successful on their own,” she says. “It takes a village, and that’s what we have.”
Commitment to Excellence
Today, Josée’s sons, Paul and Denny, share in delivering on the Covington commitment to excellence and remaining on the cutting edge of travel trends. As a result, Covington Travel is regularly recognized for tremendous satisfaction among the travelers and planners we serve.
Fifty years later, the Glen Allen-based company has grown to 84 travel professionals, serving more than 300 corporate clients. In addition to planning business trips for executives, they focus on planning vacations and meetings. Covington also has the technology necessary for clients who prefer to book trips using the company’s online booking tools.
Covington operates three locations in Virginia with three divisons including Vacations, Business Travel, Meetings and Events. Each division has designated staff invested in the well-being of our clients, no matter the size of the company, the complexity of the meeting’s agenda or the scope of the vacation.
Exceptional Customer Service
Whether working with an individual or a corporation, the Covington team recognizes the importance of focusing on exceptional service and attention to even the smallest detail. We believe an infectious, can-do attitude is the only way to ensure the best possible results every time.
“Nothing is as important as the relationships we build with our clients, our suppliers, and our own colleagues. Not even the bottom line.”
—Josée Covington, President and CEO
