      I cannot recommend Oyster enough!
      The team provides a personal and very efficient service. After a last minute decision to undergo a ski-season, within 3 weeks Oyster Worldwide had spoken to me and helped me sort all my travel, insurance and accommodation to send me off on what was then the best few months of my life!!
      Very trustworthy and reliable - throughout my time away I knew that if I ever had an issue I would have been able to call on them for any help or advice - which was an amazing comfort.

      I spent 12 weeks with Oyster Worldwide volunteering at a bear sanctuary in Romania, Europe. It was the most incredible experience. The team were incredibly supportive and made my trip very easy - this meant I could enjoy it more. The organisation on the ground was great, the flat was perfect and in the center of town. Seeing the bears every day and doing something to help them was the best.
