Our Combination Trips give you the opportunity to volunteer around the world by letting you choose more than one trip as a single package. You can combine two different projects in one country, or travel to more than one country and volunteer across a range of projects.
Our volunteer trips around the world give you versatility and diversity, while taking the hassle out of organising a volunteering trip on this scale. At each location you’ll have Projects Abroad staff there to support you. As we plan your trip, we can advise you on the best way to combine your options so you get the experience you want.
There isn’t a limit to the amount of time you can spend on your trip. It’s often more cost effective to combine more than one trip.
If you want to travel the world and try lots of different things, meeting new people along the way, a Combined Trip will help you do this.
What are Combined Trips?
Combined Trips are where more than one Projects Abroad trips are put together into a single package. You can combine different countries and different volunteering projects, piecing together volunteer opportunities around the world. 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.
All our projects are sustainable, targeted and focused on helping the local community. You can be assured you’re taking part in an ethical project that has lasting impact.
Is a Combined Trip right for me?
Our Combined Trips are for any volunteers who want to do more than one project or see more than one country. There are so many different ways to support disadvantaged communities, so this is a great way to learn about how you can help.
If you’re planning a longer trip, or simply want to try different things to find your passion, this type of trip will suit you.
Our staff’s expert knowledge is incredibly valuable when it comes to planning a longer or more varied trip. Even if you want to take on something ambitious, you’ll know you’re in a safe, supported environment.
If you’re interested in our Combined Trips, read our full list of trip types here so you can choose your favourite combinations. And if you're interested in doing different projects and going to several countries during your gap year, we strongly recommend our Global Gap Year programme.
