About Covington TravelÂ
Serving Global Travelers for over 50 yearsÂ
As a full-service travel agency, Covington provides personalized service and global travel planning for business, meetings, and vacations. The Virginia-based agency, founded in 1967, is led by JosĂ©e G. Covington, President and CEO of Covington Travel.
As a native of Luxembourg and a naturalized U.S. citizen, JosĂ©e brought to life a company that would become a national leader for business and vacation travel services.Â With $106 million dollars in sales and 85 employees, Covington reached a new milestone and ranked as 53 on the 2019 Travel Weekly Powerlist.
With over 50 years in business, JosĂ©e credits the travel agency’s growth to the hard work and dedication of its employees.Â â€śNobody is ever successful on their own,â€ť she says. â€śIt takes a village, and thatâ€™s what we have.â€ť
Today, JosĂ©e’s sons, Paul and Denny, share in delivering Covington’s commitment to excellence.Â Paul Covington, CFO, is proud of his team’s success in keeping Covington ahead of the curve. “New technologies continue to emerge and we will implement them wherever possible to meet the needs of our clients.” As a result, Covington Travel is regularly recognized for tremendous satisfaction among the corporate and individual travelers we serve.
Fifty years later, Covington serves more than 300 corporate clients in Virginia and beyond.Â In addition to planning business trips for executives, our travel professionals focus on planning vacations, corporate meetings,Â and incentive trips. Covington also has the technology available for clients who prefer to book trips using the company’s online booking tools.
Exceptional PersonalizedÂ ServiceÂ
Whether working with an individual or a corporation, the Covington team recognizes the importance of focusing on exceptional personalized 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.”
