2020-2021 Trip Line-up
COVID-19 has resulted in a lot of uncertainty in the travel industry. Here are the actions we’re taking:
All trips go on sale Sat Oct 17th 2020! Save the Date!
How do I REGISTER FOR A TRIP?Registration for all NTSC trips will be done online and consists of 5 steps. Please note, you are purchasing a trip from a Tour Operator, NOT NTSC.
Sign-up for the priority list
Oct. 17th, 2020!
A Priority List allows members to indicate their interest in a trip. Register yourself plus your roommate in a double room. Popular trips can sell out within a minute or two of going on sale, so make sure you set the date in your calendar and be ready! NTSC will assign trip spots based on the order of signup, with the exception of keeping couples/pre-selected roommate, matching the gender of roommates with no preferred roommate, and accommodating single room requests.
NEW for 2020/2021 - we are allowing sign up with a friend!
Joining the Priority List is free and minimal information will be required. At this stage you are not guaranteed a spot on the trip.
Air trips go on sale at 9:00am
Bus trips go on sale at 10:00am
Trip Registration with NTSC
If you have secured a spot based on your position on the Priority List, you will receive an email invitation with further instructions to complete your registration within a deadline. That invitation contains a link to a private ntsc.ca page along with a code to continue with the detailed registration process.
Instructions vary depending on the type of trip (bus or flight) but will start with a request to pay a registration fee to NTSC ($25 for bus trips; $40 for week long trips). This fee is non-refundable, and the only fee that goes towards the Club to fund administration costs.
Register with Tour Operator and pay deposit
Please ensure that the information you provided in Step 2 is accurate as this information is used to help secure your spot! It is the members responsibility to pay any fees incurred for any incorrect information provided. The Tour Operator can provide insurance quotes, and will collect payments directly.
Air Trips: NTSC will provide the Tour Operator with the information you have provided in Step 2.
Bus Trips: The Tour Operator requires members to provide information directly through their own sign-up page. Unlike Air flights, bus trip payments must be made in full at this time.
You are not fully registered until the Tour Operator receives your deposit and final payment!
Pay remaining balance to Tour Operator
You must be aware of Tour Operator final payment dates, which are posted on the ntsc.ca web page. Be aware of whether your credit card will be automatically debited or whether you need to proactively sent an electronic payment to the Tour Operator.
