Payment Terms

Volunteers walking in river in New ZealandTo secure your placement on the project, you will need to fill out the online application form including your application payment of £180 (included in the total project costs listed above). If for some reason, your application is not accepted, we would reimburse this payment fully. However, for those who are accepted, 15% of the full amount needs to be paid within 14 days of being confirmed on the project, with the remainder (85%) to be paid one month before departure. If you apply with under 4 week’s notice, the full payment is due in full on confirmation.
