More About Prices

  • Fees quoted in US Dollars.
  • Projects lasting between listed durations are possible for the higher price level. For example, for a 22 day project the “4 weeks” price would apply.
  • “Add-Ons” must be done in conjunction with another Projects Abroad placement.
  • Any extensions made after the start of a project, if possible at all, will be charged at the “In-Country Extension” rate.
  • Children ages 4-14 can be accommodated with parent or guardian at the “In-Country Extension” rate in some destinations.
  • Families traveling with children ages 15+ each qualify for a 5% discount from their normal program fee. This is only for immediate family members and excludes cousins, boyfriends, girlfriends, and close friends.
  • Prices for project and/or destination combinations are calculated based on the particular projects, durations, and destinations. Reference our Combinations page for more details.
  • If you have volunteered with Projects Abroad before, you’re eligible for:
    • A 10% discount when you sign up for another project with us at any time. This goes up to 15% if you sign up within three months of finishing your previous project.
    • A 50% discount on the deposit to secure your spot on your next project.
    • A 10% discount for each volunteer you recommend who signs up with us. This is cumulative, so that means that you could join a project for free (up to a duration of four weeks) if you sign up ten other volunteers. Your friend/s will also receive 5% off their project fee.
  • Our current insurers can only provide coverage for volunteers up to age 65. Volunteers ages 66+ will need to obtain alternative travel and medical insurance.
  • Some of our Projects for Professionals require extra registration costs and procedures before you arrive. Amounts range from US$50 to US$600. Please see the webpage for your project to see if extra registration fees apply.
  • Please note that in some destinations you can choose to be met at an alternative airport for an extra fee.
  • In all destinations, all necessary work-related transportation costs will be covered by Projects Abroad.

The prices vary depending on your chosen volunteer project, duration and destination(s). If you combine projects within a country you pay the placement fee for the most expensive project, then additional weeks fees as appropriate. If you combine projects in two or more countries you will get 10% off each placement fee (excluding language courses). Check out our Combinations page for more details.
