Pay Over Time

Let's break it down

Instead of putting off your trip, plan for it!

Help your future self by strategizing your finances now. Reaching your travel goals first comes from making a plan. Let us help you make those plans!

When arranging your trip finances, it’s best to break it down into incremental payments. Use our easy tool to create a payment plan that’s doable for you. We’ve got customizable payment plans that can allow you to pay over time within your budget, at your own pace, and with no fees. Within no time, you’ll pay off you’re full trip without even thinking about. You down? Let’s get started now.

Start a Payment Plan in 3 simple steps:


Lock in your dates

First, commit to a trip date by placing a deposit! The timing of your trip is the first step for planning for your scheduled payments. Not ready to pay a $450 deposit yet? No worries, you can make payments towards your deposit too!


Choose your number

Use our payment breakdown tool to see the minimum amount a month to pay off your trip, then let’s set up a monthly amount that works for you.


Pay over time

You created a doable action plan, now you can relax and see your trip balance decrease to $0, without interest, fees, or lifting a finger.

Let’s break it down:

 Trips are from few months to a year-and-a-half away…


 So, your monthly payments could be super doable…


 You choose your dates and payment frequency…


 Easy peasy.


How do I setup a payment?
Just give us a call and we’ll set it up over the phone! Let us know the amount and how often you want to pay (monthly, bi-monthly, etc). We’ll set it, you forget it, and watch your trip balance go down!
How much should I pay?
It’s up to you! Use our calculation tool above to break down the amount and timeframe to pay off your trip.
Can I fundraise and have a payment plan?
Absolutely! We highly recommend fundraising and most of our volunteers successfully fundraise!  After we receive your deposit, we’ll email you an endorsement letter to fundraise, fundraising tools from past volunteers, advice, and MORE! We can also link you up with other volunteers in your area to fundraise together!
What's the deposit deal?

A deposit is required to secure your spot and once it’s reserved, we’ll send you all the info you need to prepare for your trip. Trip deposits are $450 and add-on deposits are $250.

After you put down your deposit that’s good for life, your spot on the trip is guaranteed! You can put down your add-on deposit with your trip deposit or later, either one is a-okay! If you need to change your trip date, just contact us.

What if I don't have the full deposit?
Just put down what you can! We have a “Fundraise for your Deposit” program, so you can pay in increments towards your deposit. Then, once you reach the deposit ($450 for trip and $250 for add-ons), you’re spot will be solidified.
Are there any fees?
Nope, there’s no fees or interest with our monthly plan.
Can I make additional payments as well?
Absolutely! All you have to do is login to your Volunteer Profile to make an additional payment or mail us a check.
What payment methods can I use for automated payments?
You can use a credit/debit card (we accept all major cards) or a checking account.
What if I need to cancel?

Sure, we understand life happens and our cancellation policy supports that. Your deposit is good for life, so if you need to cancel, let us know and we’ll hold the funds to use on any trip in the future.

The one requirement is timely communication: you must cancel your trip before your final payment is due (70 days prior to your trip start date) to transfer your funds with no fees. If you cancel after your payment is due, fees range from $150-$225 to reinstate your deposit to a future trip. If you cancel within 30 days of the trip, you will lose all funds paid towards your trip. See our terms and conditions here for our full cancellation policy.

Can I just pay in full now?
Of course! You can pay in full through your volunteer profile or mail us a check.
What if I'm not sure about add-ons?
The most important part is to make sure you get on a trip! Then, you can put a deposit down for an add-on later. Log in to your Volunteer Profile anytime to pay the add-on deposit – you don’t have to pay both deposits at the same time.
