What thousands of Worldpackers are saying about it

United Kingdom


I had such a lovely time volunteering here, such a relaxing place where I found myself surrounded by the beautiful view and exploring around. Kakena and zul were so accommodating and I always enjoyed having a good chat and kakena’s amazing cooking which I’ll miss a lot (and the cats)!

United States


Matteo and Flavio were super welcoming! My favorite part was meeting other volunteers and guests in the hostel from all over the world.



Great experience!
With no doubt I will come back to this place..
Malta is a paradise to visit. I enjoy every day in this place..
Thanks Franco

Frequently Asked Questions

Yearly :) You only pay for your plan one time to get all of its benefits for the full validity of your plan.

Absolutely not. You won’t be charged anything else at all during the time you use Worldpackers, no matter how many applications you send out, the number of trips you take, or how much content you consume

Some specific hosts request an extra collaboration fee to contribute to their institution/NGO, or to help with costs to make your experience even more rewarding. Make sure to discuss this kind of information with your host before confirming your trip. Learn more.

Don’t worry. We’ll never renew your plan automatically, so you’ll only be charged one time. We’ll reach out to you when your plan is about to expire, and the decision to renew it or not is entirely up to you :)

The Couples/Friends plans were designed especially for those who want to volunteer together with a travel companion. Only one of you needs to pay, and then you can invite your companion. You will then both be able to apply to and confirm trips together during the full validity of your plan. In other words, you will not be able to apply individually.

You can see more details about the Couples/Friends plans here and find all of our open positions which accept multiple travelers here.

We work hard to make sure our community hosts are always responsive. However, they do receive a lot of applications, and they need to pick volunteers that are the best fit for their projects.

So to increase your chances of being accepted, make your profile nice and complete, earn certificates in our Academy, and apply to multiple hosts that you can identify with.

And of course, our support team can also help you to find new volunteer opportunities and give you more tips to increase your chances.

Our refund policy follows the same rules as our Worldpackers Trips cancelation policy. Click here to see all of the terms and conditions for our refund process.
