A Look Back

Providing Travel Expertise Since 1986.

Founder, Michele Hoey, puts it best - "I love seeing places I've only ever read about in books." This passion for travel led Michele and John Hoey to start PATravel in 1986, quickly leading to the development of a successful travel agency that has provided loyal customers with their ideal travel experience for years since.

The travel industry has evolved since 1986, with the boom of cruise ship vacations and the rise in European river cruises in recent years. Throughout these changes, Patravel has continuously provided customers with the highest level of service through longterm relationships with well-known resort, hotel, tour and cruise suppliers.

The Hoey's passion for travel is felt throughout the company. From experienced travel specialists to the global vacation deals PAtravel provides, the agency is here to take customers to those places that are read about in books - and further.
