Arrange your flights through our partner travel agent - StudentUniverse

We work with a very experienced travel agent called StudentUniverse (part of the Flight Centre) which organises flights for our volunteers, so you can contact them to help you find the best flight for your trip. They are ATOL bonded and insure your flight tickets against airline failure so you can book with confidence.

  • Make sure you quote ‘Pod’ so they know you are one of our volunteers
  • Book flights as soon as possible once your placement has been confirmed, to get the best deals and availability
  • Arrange travel insurance when your placement has been confirmed
