Hassle-free volunteering and interning abroad

We always want to help you get the most out of your time abroad. We believe that if we can take the hassle out of things, you can focus on your project and get more out of it.

We also think you shouldn’t have to waste time shopping around for things that should come as standard with every project.

This is why we are dedicated to providing a hassle-free experience for all of our volunteers and interns with no hidden fees.

Let us take care of everything

We take the time and hard work out of planning and organising your trip. This can even start right now if you want it to! Our team of experts are always on hand to offer advice on which project to choose or to help you apply. You can contact us at any time to get started.

Once you’ve applied, our team will give you comprehensive pre-departure support that includes:

  • visa advice
  • arranging accommodation
  • organising your placement
  • airport pick-ups
  • ground transportation
  • health and travel insurance

We do all this for you and it’s all included in the standard fee, so you don’t face any hidden costs.

We can even arrange your flights if you’d like us to.

The Projects Abroad Guarantee

The travel insurance we put in place for you means you can claim for a refund if you have to cancel your trip for medical reasons. We also understand that plans can change unexpectedly for non-medical reasons, and we don't think you should be penalised for unforeseen events. So as part of our Hassle-free approach, instead of losing out on your trip if you cancel, you can postpone it instead.

With our Projects Abroad Guarantee, you may cancel for any reason up until the day of travel. We will then hold your project for you at the same price you initially applied for, up to two years from the cancellation date.

The extra mile

Because of the hands-on approach of our staff, if there is something you particularly want to get out of your trip, they can help you organise it. Whether that’s some help sightseeing during your time off, or doing a specific task during your Project, they can help make it happen.

Projects Abroad took care to ensure the trip was specific for our school. That is actually why I chose Projects Abroad. We have an African drumming class at our school and Projects Abroad made sure my students participated in an African drumming class while in the country. Projects Abroad made sure each participant went home with a djembe drum. - Wesley Thomson, Greenbrier Academy Group Leader.

They know the local area and community well, so while you’re finding your feet, they can organise things quickly and easily and are always happy do so.

Going the extra mile is something that comes naturally to us, and we believe it makes our Projects just that little bit special.

Flexible Projects

You can choose the exact day you’d prefer to arrive and leave, and exactly how long you want to stay. This means you can give the amount of time you’re able to, at the time of year you’re able to.

This is all possible because our permanent, full-time members of staff are always there to pick you up on arrival and drop you off on departure.
