Cancellation Policies

What happens if the volunteer program is cancelled by the volunteer?

In the unfortunate event that you have to cancel the program, you will be charged a cancellation fee. For details on the amount that applies to your case, please can check the policies below:

Cancellation price (percentage of final payment)

If cancelled…

20 %

…up to 35 days prior to the start of the volunteer program

Please be aware that Volunteer World cannot refund the deposit you paid for the volunteer program, no matter how far in advance you cancelled the program. Please check our Flex Option if you would like to volunteer at a different project site.

Travel Insurance

In any case we strongly advice all volunteers to get a travel insurance before their stay abroad. 

This insurance covers medical emergencies, emergency evacuation, trip cancellation, personal belongings and personal liability.

Volunteer World has therefore partnered with World Nomads to ensure volunteers have access to the best insurance deals, designed specifically with volunteer travelers in mind. World Nomads is recommended by highly regarded travel experts, Lonely Planet, and is underwritten by insurance giants Allianz, IHI, BCS Insurance Group, BUPA, Mondial Assistance and Millstream.

 

Terms of the Refund Guarantee

Only if application and payment happen through Volunteer World, organisations and volunteers can be guaranteed to receive the full benefit of our cancellation policies.
