As a leading international travel agency, our employees are not just passionate about travel, but also about helping others. We’ve been fortunate to see and experience the great beauty around the globe, as well as the great needs that exist. As individuals and as a company, we try to be good global citizens by lending our support to many humanitarian efforts. Together we can and will make a difference.


For over 30 years, Protravel International has been spreading holiday cheer to more than 400 children at the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Phillips Ambulatory Care Center in NYC in collaboration with CBTF and our travel industry partners. The holiday party offers games, arts and crafts, food and beverages, costumes, toys and presents for the children. Protravel agents and staff devote months of work making this happen for the kids every year.
