Travel Insurance Designed for Volunteering Abroad

We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when volunteering with WorkingAbroad. It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us.

WorkingAbroad is working in partnership with Endsleigh and World Nomads to offer our travellers policies which have been specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst you are on your volunteer project abroad.

NB It is an advantage to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the policy issue date. This will, therefore, provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.
