Is it worth talking with a travel agency company to book flights or is it just as well to get flights on your own?
In the Volunteer guidebook we have lots of suggestions of travel agents you can use in your home country if you would find it easier to go through them to book your flights. Depends how computer savvy and confident you are
Make sure you contact your Placement Facilitator if you have queries about particular flights or your National office contact.
Thank you for serving with us!
Greetings from the Africa Mercy!
We always strongly recommend that everyone coming buy a changeable ticket, which can usually be done through a travel agent. They are also very helpful at changing tickets for you if that needed to happen.
I hope that helps!
