NPCA Member Pricing

Prices are based on double occupancy; some tours reflect a price range difference of up to $300 per person. Traveler who book early will receive the best pricing, and by booking early, we are more easily able to confirm departures will depart. Although price changes rarely occur, guest will be liable for any applicable taxes, fees or surcharges that may be assessed by the tour operator or government agencies.

Deposit & Final Payment

A dollar-amount deposit is required for all trips. Please refer to the individual information on each trip for the deposit amount per person. All payments are processed by your tour's Travel Partner listed on individual tour webpages. Payments can be made via personal checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express--with some tour specific restrictions. Final payment is due 120-90 days prior to departure depending on the tour; participants will receive a final invoice for their tour balance from the tour's Travel Partner. If that final payment is not received by the due date, NPCA and/or the Travel Partner reserve the right to cancel the reservation. In the case of billing errors, NPCA Travel Partners reserve the right to re-invoice with correct pricing. Payment in full is required at time of booking for reservations made less than 45 days before departure.

Cancellations & Cancellation Fees

All NPCA Travel Partners have different dates and penalties for their tours. Please check with your individual trip information about the cancel fees and note that all cancellations must be sent in written notification. There will be no refund for unused portions of the tour. If the trip is cancelled for whatever reason by NPCA, you will receive a full refund.


Travel Arrangements

Trip Interruption/Cancellation Insurance

We strongly recommend that you purchase trip interruption/cancellation insurance. Travel insurance premiums are nonrefundable unless your journey is cancelled by NPCA. NPCA has chosen USI Travel Insurance Services to provide travel insurance for our valued travelers. Every year, Travel Insurance Select gives peace of mind to thousands of travelers just like you. Be sure you are adequately insured for your next trip.    



Travel Documents

Travel documents will be issued approximately 21 days prior to departure date on a fully paid reservation. Overnight delivery charges will be assessed when necessary to provide documents for late reservations.

Traveler Responsibility

Travelers are responsible for choosing a ParkScapes trip consistent with their ability, fitness, and overall health. All travelers are required to complete and return their registration form, responsibility form, and health form before being allowed to participate in a trip. Travelers also are responsible for reading and understanding all pre-departure materials and bringing the appropriate clothing and gear as suggested.

Additional Terms and Conditions may apply to some tours and will be provided with pre-trip mailings.
