Why? It's only three days. The soil will stay moist. Placing it in a tray will make the roots rot, you loosing your plant.
I water my plants biweekly(two times a week), the soil feels dry but if I stick my finger in it, the center still feels moist.

Yea, Nepenthes should never be left in standing water. Good luck, and fun on your vacation! :D

You don't even need to give them water for a few days anyways. Your plant would have been fine either way.
