In the Ecoteer resources area you can find information about everything you need to volunteer!
Ecoteer has been working hard to give our members great deals on things our members will need when they volunteer abroad independantly.
Keeping in contact with your family is very important when volunteering for your safety when abroad. However calling from your mobile is usually very expensive and often you are charged for incoming calls as well which means a huge phone bill when you get back home. This is why Ecoteer has partnered with Go-Sim a world renowned international sim-card company.
As an Ecoteer member you receive a discount of 10% - you can buy your Go-sim card from the Ecoteer members control panel.
Travel insurance is the most important thing to buy when volunteering independantly. This is why Ecoteer has partnered with World Nomads the leader in travel insurance who are offering Ecoteer members a discount of 10%. You receive your 10% discount when you buy their insurance through your Ecoteer members control panel.
You can buy, extend and claim online even after you've left home. Recommended by Lonely Planet, World Nomads travel insurance is available to people from over 150 countries and is designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and activities such as skiing and snowboarding.
The Ecoteer/World Nomads partnership is further strengthened through language guides which are free to download onto your ipod for Ecoteer members. You can download the guides through your Ecoteer members control panel. If you know some of the language you will enjoy your time away so much more and be much safer.
Being an Ecoteer member also gives you access to our volunteering forums. The forums are a great way to talk to other volunteers for tips and advice plus you can advertise yourself to volunteer projects and talk to the project leaders. The forums also have a section where grass root organisations can talk to each other transferring knowledge across the globe.
