Volunteer World's Benefits
Volunteer World's aim to maintain your best experience can be divided into 3 pillars:
- we follow high ethical guidelines for humanitarian projects and animal welfare
- we guarantee you a high quality of our partner organizations
- we guarantee you the best price
For this reason, all of our partner organizations have committed themselves to not charge higher fees for their programs on Volunteer World, in comparison to those on their own websites. This means that you will always find the same price on Volunteer World and on the respective homepage of our partner organizations.
If, in the unlikely event, you do come across such a case, feel free to contact our live chat or point it out to your project coordinator during the application process. Your volunteer organization will then adjust your offer on Volunteer World to give you the best price.
What does the Best Price Guarantee include?
As we have received some questions about the Best Price Guarantee in the past, here is a summary of which price is decisive. The guarantee can only be claimed if the volunteer program
- covers the same services (eg. same accommodation, equipment)
- has the same check-in and check-out dates
- is offered in the same currency
The decisive factor is always the total price, which on some of our partners' websites can consist of different fees (e.g. program fee, processing fee, payment fee). Since transparency is a high goal of ours, we always show you the total price on Volunteer World.
Furthermore, it has to be noticed during the process of your application.
Please note that the Best Price Guarantee does not apply if the organization lowers its fees (due to e.g exchange rate fluctuations or discounts) after you have made your reservation and paid the deposit.
Why you should always apply through Volunteer World?
In addition to the best price, Volunteer World offers you more free benefits and security layers:
- Quality Assurance: High ethical standards & transparent social impact
- Flex Option: Change your reservation at no extra costs
- Refund Guarantee: We refund your fees if your project cancels your trip
- Support & Mediation: We cover your back no matter what happens
