Our Covid-19 placement guarantee

Feb 7, 2022

Our Covid-19 guarantee

We are delighted to be running as normal – all our destinations have reopened their borders to international travellers and we now have students and graduates all around the world gaining valuable work experience.

We want you to have the excitement of booking your placement with the reassurance that if anything changes again because of Covid-19, we’ve got your back.

So our Covid-19 guarantee is here for your security.

What is the Placement Year International Covid-19 guarantee?

It’s very simple. If you book a trip with us and your placement cannot go ahead because of Covid-19 then Placement Year International will either:

  1. Arrange your placement in a different destination which is NOT affected, or if this is not possible;
  2. Start your placement remotely, then help you join the host company in-person if/when international travel resumes, or if this is not possible;
  3. Postpone your trip to later dates, or if this is not possible;
  4. Cancel and give a refund

Placement Year International will also not charge any admin fees for making the changes.

Note that normal cancellation conditions apply if you cancel your placement for any other reason (not related to Covid-19).

What about flights?

If your placement is abroad, we recommend only booking flights that are date changeable and refundable (airlines often charge a fee for changing the date or cancelling flights but these are normally fairly modest). Placement Year International can give advice before any flights are booked.

We look forward to hearing from you!
