🤝 Exchange

In general, you are expected to exchange around 5 hours of your time to help the host with the tasks you agreed on upfront. In return, you receive free accommodation and free food. In some cases you can also get paid, especially if you bring experience and skills. It is important to communicate upfront with the host to ensure the agreement is clear for both parties.

🥰 Community

A global community allows you access to travel buddies, local hosts, and other workawayers. The platform has integrated tools that allows its members to meet up for coffee, plan travels together, or find language partners.

💶 Prices

Choose between a single workaway membership or sign up as a couple or a family. Prices start at 45 Euro per year for a single workawayer account.

🌳 Giving back

Workaway has sponsored numerous independent projects throughout the past years (some are Workaway hosts and others are via Kiva) as a way to give something back on a local level.

Workaway also recently started working with Ecologi to help fight climate change. With this partnership Ecologi will plant a tree on behalf of each Workaway traveller as part of the climate action.
