Backpacker Guarantee™

How it works

Your stay is insured and the Backpacker Guarantee provides that any amount spent through Backpacker College directly is transferable to another room in the event of poor room quality or any unaddressed safety issue.

Deposits are held in a Royal Bank of Canada Trust Account and are transferred once accommodation is confirmed. Guests can transfer their stay and their payment to a room available on any of our partner sites (if applicable, the difference in price is paid by the guest or refunded to the guest).

The Backpacker Guarantee

We provide a 100% guarantee for any purchase through Backpacker College. You can cancel free within 24 hours of booking. Each room is subject to the cancellation policies of each accommodation provider. Full or partial refunds from time of booking to 7 days prior to day of arrival. If necessary, Backpacker College applies that amount towards accommodation or travel in another trusted destination or with any other reputable provider (Incl. Airbnb, Expedia,, and others).
