The answer is **yes**: the equivalence class of the covering is detected by the monodromy representation of the fundamental group of the base minus the branch locus, up to conjugacy.

More precisely, let $f \colon X \to Y$ be a (possibly branched) covering of degree $d$ of Riemann surfaces. Choosing a point $y_0 \in Y$ not lying in the branch locus $B$, there is a monodromy representation

$\rho \colon \pi_1(Y-B, y_0) \to S_d \quad (*)$

whose image is *transitive* (since $X$ is assumed to be connected). Moreover, if we choose a different base point it is easy to check that the map $\rho$ varies only up to conjugacy in $S_d$.

Then there is the following well-known

**Theorem**
There exists a one-to-one correspondence between branched coverings $f \colon X \to Y$ of degree $d$ whose branch points lie in $B$ and group homomorphisms of type $(*)$ with transitive image (up to conjugacy in $S_d$).
