Why is it safer to travel with Worldpackers?

Verified hosts

Verified hosts

Our team verifies all of our hosts before approving them to join our platform, checking their address, online references, and documentation whenever necessary.


Community reviews

At the end of each volunteer exchange, travelers and hosts leave reviews about their experience together. This provides transparency for each and every volunteer opportunity.

Formal agreement

Formal agreements

When you confirm your trip on our platform, you’ll have a formal agreement with your host containing your dates, activities, hours, benefits (such as accommodation, meals, and others), and the rules for the position you applied to.

Quality policy

Our commitment to quality and safe experiences

Reports that compromise the physical, moral, and/or psychological integrity of hosts or travelers may lead to profile deactivation in order to keep our community safe for collaboration. Read our policies here. .


Support in 3 languages

We have a dedicated team to give you support in English, Spanish, and Portuguese before, during, and after your trips, whether with finding a position, discussing a particular host, or answering any questions you may have.


WP Insurance

If you have to leave your host for some reason, we’ll help you to find a new one or pay for 3 nights of lodging in a hostel in the same city. Learn more.

Global community

A global community

In addition to reading all of the reviews left for hosts, you can also chat with travelers who have already collaborated with a certain host and learn how their experience was, so you can have more peace of mind for your next volunteer trip.
