With WP Insurance, if you have to leave an exchange early because something isn’t going as agreed on our site, our team will help you to find a new host to continue volunteering. Because this can take longer than we’d like, we can also reimburse you for nights of economy accommodation if necessary ;)
WP Insurance is only valid for plans officially confirmed through our website during their official dates. So if a host pre-approves you, remember to confirm your trip to have an official agreement with them, as well as access to our insurance and support!
I've noticed that people here at worldpackers are really committed to the experience. With other sites (I learned from other volunteers) the service is merely communication between hosts and volunteers. Here at Worldpackers, an application is a commitment, and that makes you feel safer.
The most important thing is its safety and the security when and if something happens to go wrong during your trip.
Worldpackers offers different types of travel, so there’s something for everyone. I also like the idea of being able to talk to people before you book a trip, which gives you confidence that you can be safe while you travel.
