Has someone agreed to be your roommate(s) on this trip?

If yes, what is the name of your roommate?

Seeking a Roommate?

Check the box below and we’ll share your name with others who’ve checked it. Please note that due to higher costs, if for any reason you end up rooming alone, the additional Single Room Supplement (SRS) must apply: $50 per night. If you don’t have a roommate when you apply, please include the SRS in your total. If you find a roommate, we’ll refund it to you! If the SRS cost might preclude you from going or you’re otherwise concerned about forfeiting your non-refundable $500 deposit (a tax-deductible donation) to Xela AID, you may wish to consider a “Conditional Application” (see below).

Conditional Application

If you feel your plans could change or that you may cancel for any reason, may we suggest a Conditional Application. A Conditional Application secures you a number on our waiting list while you are finalizing your plans. Out of fairness Xela AID fills spots on a first-come first-served basis when an application is received with a deposit, so when you’re ready to submit your deposit, there may not be space left on the trip you were considering. Please note that because we must release excess reservations, conditional applications expire 91 days prior to leave date.

Refund Policy

Your $500 deposit is integral to our planning since it is used to book hotels, purchase supplies, and to pay our caring staff who expend considerable time and effort planning a wonderful experience for you. Your deposit is therefore non-refundable if for any reason your plans should change. For this reason, we advise that you purchase trip cancellation insurance. The balance of fees are refundable as follows: 100% within 91 days of travel; 50% within 61 days of travel, and 25% within 31 days of travel. We regret that we cannot refund monies within 30 days of travel. Thank you for your support and understanding. Please note that as a volunteer, 100% of your contribution and in-country expenses are generally tax deductible (please consult your tax professional). A tax receipt for the full amount contributed through Xela AID is provided by January 31 of the year following your participation. We suggest you keep a copy of meal receipts and airfare which may also be fully tax deductible.
