Our Combination Trips allow you to choose more than one project or destination as part of your package. You can combine two different projects in one country, or join projects in multiple countries.
Want to travel the world and see new sights? Eager to participate in a whole range of different activities and learn new skills? Then a Combination Trip is right for you! It's also a cost effective way to travel as we provide discounts with combinations.
What are Combination Trips?
Combination Trips put multiple projects into a single package. You can combine different countries and different volunteer/intern projects. Our staff will advise you on the best options for you to get the experience you want.
You can combine our more structured trips – where you follow a set itinerary and dates – with our more flexible trips. This helps you get a taste of volunteering abroad and building your confidence and independence as you go.
There are two main types of combination:
1. In-Country Combination
Want to do two or more projects in the same country? Pay the full price for the more expensive project, and just the ‘extra weeks’ price for the additional projects. There are so many exciting activities in each destination. Make the most of your experience by learning a variety of skills and supporting multiple projects.
2. Multi-Country Combination
If you do projects in multiple destinations, you'll receive a €230 discount for every extra country you visit.
- Visit Ghana and Nepal for a €230 discount
- Visit Ghana, Nepal, and Peru for a €460 discount
- Visit Ghana, Nepal, Peru, and Jamaica for a €690 discount
And so on.
This is perfect if you are travelling a long distance to your project. Once you've flown so far around the world, it's cost-effective to visit more places during the same trip, rather than flying back another time.
