What thousands of Worldpackers are saying about it

Daniel

Argentina

Because it is very good to find places to volunteer in a safe way, being able to see the comments of other volunteers and speak with them.

Valentina

Argentina

Volunteering for me was an endless change both personally and socially. I grew as a person and related to others. So it is super RECOMMENDED.

Li

Costa Rica

It is an excellent platform! Volunteering is a unique experience that every person should live at some point in their life.

Rahul

India

Everyone should travel; it's the same as reading a book. And with Worldpackers, you blend in with locals like deep diving into the book.

Roció

Argentina

It is a practical and safe app. In my experience, I have met many solo female volunteers who travel with the app, and most of us think that it is an excellent tool for safe travel.

Stephen

Ireland

Volunteering through Worldpackers has given me the greatest experiences of my life. I would scream it from the rooftops. Good job, guys; you're a blessing to the earth.

Micaele

Brazil

I believe Worldpackers' special mission is to improve the world and motivate people to be happy, travel, and do good. Since I discovered Worldpackers, I highly recommend it to friends, family, and anyone with whom the subject comes up.

Brian

Argentina

Worldpackers can change your life, thanks to this platform I had the best experiences of my life. Traveling and volunteering, I learned much more than in many years of my life. It is a platform that is growing more and more.

Juliana

Brazil

I recommend the site to all my friends; the idea of exchanging what you can is simply brilliant. I'm having the experience of my life through your site and I'm eternally grateful to have discovered it. A big dream is to be part of this, helping others to have experiences as good as the one I am having.

Maya

Netherlands

I like the way it gives you the chance to not only visit another country but to feel like you are immersed there, living there, and have a family there.

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.
