COVID-19 Travel Update

In the midst of this global health crisis, NPCA is working with our travel partners to carefully monitor COVID-19 to ensure the protection of our traveler’s health and safety.

Travel Safe with NPCA

NPCA is always committed to providing high quality tours that ensure the well-being and safety of our members and supporters. Each of our travel partners have developed robust safety protocols to protect the health of our guests, staff and the communities we visit.

In order to participate in an NPCA trip, you must be up to date on all COVID-19 vaccinations, as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As conditions and guidelines continue to evolve, our travel partners are committed to easing concerns and creating flexible options for those interested in rescheduling or booking new travel.

NPCA advises all individuals to follow the guidance of public health experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization in protecting themselves and their communities from the coronavirus.

Specific guidelines such as health screenings and social distancing will be determined based on the trip’s date of departure and group size. Please contact us at for details.

Travel Protection Insurance

We strongly recommend purchasing important optional travel insurance that will protect you from the loss of deposit and cancellation fees. NPCA partners with Travel Insurance Services through USI Affinity. All questions about a plan’s coverage should be directed to them:
