Latest News: COVID-19 (updated 12th May 2020)

BUNAC has been helping young people experience life-changing work abroad experiences for 58 years and in that time, we’ve faced and weathered many challenges.

Please be assured that in these uncertain times our commitment to our work abroad travelers, our staff and our ability to keep offering these life changing experiences to others for another 58 years remains as strong as ever.

We're sorry that your travel plans have been impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic and thank you for your patience and support while we work with our partners to coordinate the postponement or cancellation of your program.

During this very challenging time, we are adapting and following advice from the wider travel and work abroad industry.

Refund policy


If you were planning to start your work abroad program in the next couple of months, we encourage you to postpone to a later date. We will make this change free of charge, even where previously change fees would have applied and we will hold the current price of your program.

BUNAC Credit

If you decide not to postpone your current program, we will give you 110% of the value of your entire booking to put towards another BUNAC program. We can book this for you now or you can use your credit at any time during the 12-month period after it’s issued.

Cancelling your booking

We understand uncertainty can be unsettling so if you decide to cancel your program altogether you can, and our standard terms and conditions will apply.

As you can imagine our teams are working incredibly hard dealing with this crisis, however we will do our best to process your refund in 30-60 days. We unfortunately cannot refund or transfer any non-refundable government visa fees or sponsor documentation charges or fees paid to any third parties including police checks or medical checks.

The situation is still evolving, so we will be continually reviewing advice and any change of policy will be updated here on BUNAC’s website. On behalf of everyone at BUNAC, thank you for your support and patience.
