General Information on Prices

Fees quoted in AU Dollars (AUD). To view prices in other currencies visit our international websites.

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 month 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. We also offer a 5% discount to immediate family members traveling together. This discount applies to adults and children aged 15+.

Any extensions made after the start of a project will be charged at the ‘In-Country Extensions’ rate. To compare prices for projects in all of our destinations, visit our Prices page.
