Terms & Conditions

INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERING

It is understood that Voluntario Global helps to coordinate the project you volunteer for but it is not responsible for the actions of neither the volunteer nor the organization they are working for.

Voluntario Global is not a service provider, therefore, what you pay is a donation to our organization that helps sustain the network of projects we work with.

Voluntario Global is not responsible for loss of property, personal injury, illness, accident, delay or expense sustained by the volunteer while participating in the program.

Voluntario Global requires the volunteer to have adequate medical insurance for the duration of the program and must be provided with details of such insurance coverage at the time of confirming their placement.

Volunteers should be in sufficient physical and mental health to participate in the Program and do not have any physical or mental conditions which could affect their ability to participate in the Program.

Voluntario Global does NOT provide any insurance coverage for the participant or their property in connection with their participation in the Program. Volunteers acknowledge that they are responsible for their safety and own health care needs.

Daily transportation costs and meals are the volunteers' responsibility.

Volunteers agree to follow the laws of the host country, the policies of the community in which they serve, and the rules of the host family, failure to do so will result in their expulsion without notice or refunds.

A non-refundable deposit of the 50% of the total amount you will donate to your program is required along with your confirmation email. We begin the confirmation process once the deposit has been received. The balance of the donation is due before you start with your program.

If you wish to make changes to your placement once it has been confirmed, Voluntario Global will use reasonable efforts to make the changes. Depending on the case, Voluntario Global reserves the right to apply any additional charges.

Volunteers agree that no part of the donation fee is refundable once the program has started. We have a non-disclosure contract with each project, so we are not able to provide personal about the projects before signing of the volunteer contract in Argentina. Please refer to our FAQ section for more information of the Volunteer Law in Argentina: http://voluntarioglobal.org/es/inscripcion/informacion

ACCOMMODATION

Accommodations have been carefully selected by members of our staff in order to guarantee not only the infrastructure but also the services offered
In case that the volunteer's house is fully booked, participants may be placed in other type of accommodation.

If volunteers are not pleased with the assigned accommodation, they may request to change it. We will make every effort to look for another accommodation of the same type and characteristics when there are valid reasons for such a request. Any and all accommodation change request must be made via email or in writing. According to the accommodation availability, the request will be processed within a minimum of 72 hours.

We will not pay for changes in accommodation made on the volunteer's behalf.

Even if the pickup service is not requested, the volunteer must always inform Voluntario Global about the arrival time and date via e-mail or telephone at least 72 h in advance. If the requested information is not provided, we cannot guarantee that someone will be waiting at the accommodation for the volunteer upon arrival.

The accommodation will be charged from 10 AM on the first day requested. The check-in to the assigned accommodation must be made from 8 AM to 7 PM. If the check-in and check-out times are not fulfilled, we will charge the corresponding additional days.

If you decide to travel during your stay in Buenos Aires, the nights you spent outside the Volunteer's House, which you have already booked, will not be reimbursed. So please make any travel arrangements before or after your volunteer placement.

You can arrive earlier or leave after you finish your volunteer program, as long as you have paid for these extra nights.
