What thousands of Worldpackers are saying about it

United Kingdom


I had a brilliant time at Alur, the work was as expected and fair considering what you are getting in return. The hostel has a friendly feel and Tallinn is a great city to explore.



Super chill people and nice place :) I enjoyed it so much, made a lot of friends and got time to discover the city. Recommend 100%
Thank you everybody, I felt very welcomed.

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 plan was 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 plan 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.
