Travel insurance

Whether you are travelling for 1 week or 6 months, travel insurance is an essential and compulsory part of your adventure. So, if you are releasing baby turtles in Sri Lanka, teaching in Cambodia or tracking the Big Five in South Africa, having adequate insurance in place will help you to enjoy your travels.

Fundraising ideas

Although we do our best to keep our programme costs as low and as affordable as possible, when you add flights, travel insurance and spending money you may find that you need a little financial help. The money you and other volunteers pay for the programme goes towards the overall structure of the project and includes your accommodation, meals, airport transfers and support from our UK and local teams.

Our Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hours), can be studied completely online over a 6-month period, which is ideal for those with other commitments – and leaves you the freedom to study wherever and whenever suits you!
