Global Village Cancellation Policy

All GV participants are encouraged to purchase trip cancellation and interruption insurance. 

No refunds are offered if you must cancel your trip.

  • Cancellation more than 45 days prior to departure 
    All payments, excluding the $350 deposit, may be transferred for use on a feature GV trip within one year of your original trip date. All cancellation notices must first be given to your team leader before notifying GV. All transfer requests must be sent in writing to the GV office. Ask your team leader for more information.
  • Cancellation within 45 days of departure
    One hundred percent of your payments and donations will be retained by Habitat to meet current obligations.

If Habitat for Humanity must cancel:

  • We will make every effort to conduct the trip as scheduled; however, if Habitat must cancel, we will attempt to place you on another team. If that is not possible, you may receive a full refund of your program cost. GV cannot compensate participants for the cost of unusable airfare or any other expenses resulting from the cancellation.
  • Delays en route 
    If delays occur en route, or missed or cancelled flights cause you to miss your rendezvous with the team, the GV staff will do everything possible to assist you in connecting with the team. However, GV cannot be responsible for any expenses incurred because of flight problems.
