ProTour & Cruises

Seeing the Sights the Right Way

ProTour & Cruises, a travel agency in Southwick, is your gateway to top-tier travel. Imagine setting sail from a nearby port: awaken to an exotic destination on your birthday and indulge in being catered to by night. Celebrate under the sun at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. Treat someone to unforgettable memories where dreams come true at the most magical place on earth - Disney. The owner of ProTour & Cruises, Kasie Provencal, has an impressive repertoire to book your dream vacation.

Her education includes Hotel & Restaurant Management backed by Hospitality Engineering. She is a champion of design for the 1996 Olympic Games helping manufacture the Olympic Village and mobile food facilities on-site.  She was part of the Travel Team that managed sport travel for NCAA, moving 100,000 people in a span of days during the Final. 

She liaised with the NCAA managing sports travel for 100,000 people in a span of days during the Final Four & Sweet Sixteen. From there, a private tour agency hired her to plan domestic and international bus trips where she was able to finetune her group travel skills. In March 2014, she launched an independent line of booking and concierge to service existing clients, relationships, and vendors.

Q: Why book with ProTour & Cruises?

A: I’m a one-stop source for the entire trip with special deals or extra amenities and a vast knowledge of products to filter out fact from opinion. We take the guesswork out of logistics and coordinate the aspects of your vacation so it flows: proper entry/exit documentation; security time, flight duration, transfers, excursions, currency, gratuities, room placement, dining, maps. I book you the best package for your budget matching your expectations to the experience and memories awaiting to be made.

 

Q: What are common misconceptions or mistakes?

A: Don’t think you have zero control over your vacation. You have an advocate on your side to ensure you’re making the best moves. Typically travelers either overplan (book too much in a short period) or underplan (aren’t prepared with the right information and the trip is underwhelming).

Q: Do you have a niche or specialty?

A: I am a Group Travel Specialist. Your party can be as small as 5-8 but grow to hundreds. My niche is domestic/international guided tours, cruises, all-inclusives, and destination weddings. I also employ a department fully dedicated to Disney.

Q: How do you make Disney better?

A: We have an 8 Step Process that includes air, transfers, hotel, dining & reservations, Lightning Lane, Genie+, property experiences, plus tips on how to save money or get the most value out of your vacation. Picture this: a dinner during golden hour at Sanaa with binoculars in hand to overlook exotic wildlife after you dine. Between appetizer and entree at California Grille, sneak off with champagne to an outdoor patio for a spectacular fireworks show mid-meal. We describe Disney logistics for seamless travel between parks as well as the ambiance at each resort and location.

Q: What’s trending in travel?

A: Group honeymoons, family reunions, milestone anniversaries, and the gift of experiences. Parents are realizing kids’ gifts go unused or under appreciated. Now families are enjoying time together and holidays away with one another. A great starter cruise 4 to 8  days long is Bermuda out of BOS/NYC meanwhile Jamaica has a broad range of all-inclusive resorts to fit many travel styles.

Q: Are there popular trips upcoming?

A: We’re excited for many trips this fall! We’re hosting a personalized group Disney trip plus two cruises out of NYC including 5 beautiful days in Bermuda (October) and a holiday getaway at sea (November).

It’s important to find the right experience because not all destinations are the same. Kasie qualifies your preferences: pool or beach, buffet or a la carte, craft cocktails or draft beer and wine for example. She informs you about the destination, ship, hotel, restaurants, as well as what to do and see so you can leverage your vacation. ProTour & Cruises makes you feel like you return home with more than you paid for.
