Volunteer Travel Sponsorship: Important Information

  • Our vendor, e27, has set up a travel limits based on reasonable costs of travel from each country. The cost of your ticket must be within this limit.
  • If you would like to choose another ticket based on personal reasons (or want to arrive before Friday, November 16th, and depart after Monday, November 19th) you will be responsible for any cost difference between the two tickets.
  • Once you have approved your ticket to be booked, you may not change your flight.
  • When contacted by our travel agency to book your ticket, you must respond within 48 hours or face a change in flight if the cost of your flight increases while they are waiting for your response.
  • If you require travel insurance to secure your VISA, you will be financially responsible for this cost (unless you are unable)
