A minor travel consent form is required for minors who travel without BOTH parents or legal guardians. Youth ages 8-17 should be accompanied by a guardian. If you’re considering bringing a child under age 8, please contact us.

We’ll do our best to accommodate your dietary restrictions. We also encourage all our guests to pack snacks. If you have food allergies or other dietary concerns, please contact us.

Extra spending cash is welcome but not required. Some locations we visit will accept your credit card. Please notify your credit card company of your travels prior to departure. Each trip’s itinerary varies, please ask your trip leader for a suggested amount of discretionary cash to bring.

Safety is always our top priority. GO Project relies on information from our in-country staff, as well as the U.S. State Department and CDC in discerning when it is not safe to travel. While traveling, we always include a translator, driver and security when appropriate. Our itineraries are planned in advance of the trip and designed to ensure the safety of the team. Should travel conditions or conditions in the host country be deemed to be unsafe, GO Project will cancel, reschedule and/or change in-country itineraries immediately and without prior notice. For questions about cancellations and refunds, please refer to our Cancellation and Rescheduling Policies for more details.

For all GO Project trips, team members will share a room with one or more people of the same gender. When possible, couples or family members may have the option of sharing a room, however this cannot be guaranteed. All lodging locations provide bedding and towels unless specifically communicated by your trip leader.
