Travel Insurance for Volunteering Abroad

Volunteers NEED Travel Insurance

That's why we have partnered with World Nomads Travel Insurance to bring you an insurance package designed specifically for those who want to combine travelling with volunteering. Remember you do need Travel Insurance with specific cover for volunteering. Standard 'backpacker' Travel Insurance is not always sufficient, you need to get cover for your actual volunteer work, particularly if you are working with animals or doing hard physical labour.  As a volunteer, you need flexibility to cover all sort of eventualities. We recommend that you get comprehensive Travel Insurance before volunteering abroad. In addition, many of our hosts will not accept you onsite as a volunteer unless you have adequate insurance cover. Always read the small print and ask the insurer what's included before purchasing  - better to be safe than sorry!
