how it helps

Travel planning made easy

Created by educators, for educators

More than 1,500 NEA members helped design NEA Adventures. Your feedback on locations that members would most want to visit helped determine the list of destinations.

Trips for every style and budget

Choose from family-friendly vacations, adventurous journeys and itineraries that include some extra frills. Solo travelers are welcome and room-sharing options are available. We’ll pair you with another NEA member, allowing you to meet new people and save money. Some meals are included with your tour, just check the itinerary for more details.

Book with confidence

Every tour comes with complimentary travel insurance for medical evacuations if you become ill or injured, or supplier default. Additional trip insurance is available for a fee, but is not required.

Authentic experiences, low cost

Whenever possible, we stay at tried and tested local accommodations and recommend neighborhood restaurants. We pass these savings on to you with our affordable prices.
