Volunteer flights and volunteer insurance requires careful consideration. The first instinct of many volunteers when looking for a flight is to shop on several different websites for the lowest price. The lowest price is important....we get that. However, it is important to realize that when flying to many of our destinations, the flight options are very diverse and the potential hidden costs of change fees and restrictions are often difficult to find and understand on-line. A qualified travel agent is able to sort through many routing options to find the best price and the greatest flexibility for volunteer flights as well as volunteer insurance.
While it is not required, we recommend that our volunteers work with travel agents to handle booking their volunteer flights and obtaining their volunteer insurance. A travel consultant will make certain that you are aware of all of the restrictions and advantages a given ticket will have. They can assist with any extensions on flights or insurance and be an asset if something unforeseen does come up during your travel. As well, they can help you understand the terms of your insurance and what is included, such as health & medical and trip cancellation/interruption insurance.
You are free to make your arrangements however you prefer. Once you have your flight details confirmed you should log in to your account and update your profile with your arrival and departure details.
