STA has the plan! You can travel confidently with TripCARE; our proven, proprietary travel system that keeps your group safe while you enjoy the experience of a lifetime! While some tour operators struggled, we have been operating safe, amazing trips since the spring of 2021. Click to find out more here.
Our loyal group leaders are more than clients, they're also family. We were there for each other during these really challenging times. Some companies filed for bankruptcy or gave no refunds during COVID. But we trusted our groups and they have trusted us. Now we are traveling again – TOGETHER. You are not a “number” with STA. We are employee-owned, and teacher focused.
