What is included in the prices?
Our prices include all your food, accommodation, insurance (for ages 65 and under), and back up. We have set prices on a weekly basis. See the prices page for more details.
The backbone of our program is MyProjectsAbroad, Projects Abroad's own online database that connects you to our administrative and support staff around the world.
The full organization of your project by our expert local coordinators, including a supervisor at your placement and worthwhile work to do.
Local host families are carefully selected because they are friendly, welcoming, and will go out of their way to look after our volunteers. Where we can't provide host families we place our volunteers together in secure accommodation.
We will ensure you are provided with 3 square meals a day. You can't work on an empty stomach!
During your time in-destination, all of your necessary work-related transportation costs will be covered by Projects Abroad.
We have more nearly 700 trained staff worldwide. In every country we have an office run by an experienced Overseas Director, trained in our head office. Staff can be contacted 24 hours a day. They are responsible for your general well being and liaise with your placement, accommodation, and our staff in North America and the United Kingdom. See also Safety & Back-up.
Travel and medical insurance is included automatically (for ages 65 and under); you are covered no matter where you are from or where you are going. This can be extended on request to cover other travel you may be doing. It is important that you carefully read the policy, especially regarding pre-existing medical conditions, to check that the cover meets with your needs.
Our current insurers can only provide coverage for volunteers up to age 65. Volunteers age 66 and older will need to obtain alternative travel and medical insurance. For further information, please contact us.
