Frequently asked questions

Yes! There are several destinations that are open to travellers right now! And if you’re from Australia, you could be able to get an exemption to travel if you’re travelling for over 3 months*, which is the majority of our trips. We can advise how to apply for this exemption. We recommend our travellers book their trips at least 6-12 months in advance, so by the time you’re ready to depart we’re confident your destination (if it’s not already open) will be open and ready to go. *Full exemption info here.

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected by our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.


If you’re affected by COVID while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We work with a travel insurance company that provides COVID protection, and people going on Volunteer trips will get this for free currently!

Yes we are! All of our trips are still being planned for and taking new bookings. We always recommend that our travellers take 6-12 months between booking their trip to departure. This gives you plenty of time to arrange all the finer details of your trip, and pay it off. If things don’t go as planned you are always able to rearrange your trip using your Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility! So there is really nothing to worry about.

In 2020, the world stopped. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. If COVID affects your trip, you are protected for any changes with our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. Why not give yourself something to look forward to, by booking that trip!

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together. Meaning that you can live together and work together. If availability doesn’t allow it, we’ll get you in the same area. So you’ll be able to have this experience together!

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 56 days before departure without incurring ANY charges, and you’re able to rebook it for ANY time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.


In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 56 days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Travel Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 3 years!
