So you’re going on a volunteer trip. You’re going to spend your time and money to travel to a foreign place, offering your skills and service to another community. You’ll work hard for free.
If you’ve got a Volunteer Card in your pocket, your volunteer experience will be safer, easier, and more fun.
WHAT IS IT?
The International Volunteer Card (IVC) offers travel insurance, 24-7 travel assistance, and thousands of discounts…all exclusively for volunteers.
SAFER – TRAVEL INSURANCE
IVC partners with Travel Guard to bring you the best travel insurance around. You can choose the plan that is best for you and your needs, but just so you know, $45 gets you full coverage for 180 days. Lose your luggage? Unanticipated travel delays? (Pesky volcanic ash in the atmosphere?) With the IVC in your pocket, you can have peace of mind that you and your belongings will be taken care of.
EASIER – 24-7 TRAVEL ASSISTANCE
IVC also gets you 24-7 travel assistance. If you’ve injured yourself wielding a hammer, need help getting a prescription, or have lost or stolen travel documents, just dial the number on the back of the card. You’ll be connected with a real person who can direct you to the nearest and safest hospital, assist you with medical needs, or help you transfer documents or funds.
MORE FUN – 1000’S OF DISCOUNTS
Even if you’re only going on a short-term volunteer trip, we believe in rewarding you for your volunteer work year-round! With your IVC, you will have access to thousands of exclusive local and national discounts from places like Target.com, eBags, Continental Flights, tons of hotel chains, and more!
