For WWOOFer Volunteers from overseas, Travel Insurance is very important.
You may be visiting Host Farms that may be quite remote, a long way from the nearest Hospital or major town/city.
Medical transport can be very expensive, as can medical treatment if you have no insurance.

How long is my Membership
WWOOFer Volunteers can choose from single or dual memberships.
Is it automatic renewal
Does WWOOF Screen Members
At WWOOF we do not perform background checks though we do reserve the right to. WWOOF Australia is a fantastic organisation that has been around for over 37 years. It is the leader in linking volunteers and hosts together, enabling lifetime experiences and education for both parties.

How to leave a Review
If you have negative feedback, please discuss this with the other Member before you make it public. No abuse will be accepted and your Profile will be disabled immediately if you act carelessly.
What if things don't work out
This applies to WWOOFer Volunteers as well. Make sure you are very clear as to what your Host Farm expects of you.
Sometimes for whatever reason the visit may not work out as you might have expected, sometimes miscommunication or unreasonable expectations from either party.
Be honest and graceful explain its just not working out and remember (if you’re a Host Farm) the WWOOFer might need transport to a train station, bus stop or need time to find another host.
So if you feel it’s not a right fit act on it immediately, you are not required to keep the WWOOFer, or stay at a Host Farm if it is not working out.
WWOOF Australia has a Complaints Procedure which we take very seriously. Any arrangement and agreement made is your responsibility, so ensure you set the arrangement up correctly so the potential WWOOFer or Host Farm has a great understanding of your expectations before you connect.
