Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any questions about the program or our website? We are always happy to help! Find the answers to our most frequently asked questions
Do Au Pair families pay for flights?
As a Host Family, it is not your duty to pay for the Au Pair's flight. It is, however, recommended to reimburse some of the money, or the entire sum, to the Au Pair once she gets to the Host Country. It is better to do it in instalments, by adding for example a certain amount to the pocket money every month. » » »
How long does it take to hire an Au Pair?
It depends on many factors: how active you are on the platform, how specific your search criteria are and how good your profile is. We recommend to create a profile with pictures and text in the description boxes and send 10 - 15 messages a day to find an Au Pair more quickly. » » »
Can an Au Pair have a second job?
It depends. If the Au Pair is an EU citizen and is staying within the EU, then he/she can have another job. For the rest of the cases, it depends on the visa the Au Pair holds, the amount of hours she already works and the specific labour laws of the Host » » »
How much is an Au Pair per month?
The cost of an Au Pair per month depends on the pocket money and the expenses for food and utilities. Read the regulations about pocket money in every Host Country, as they differ depending on where you are and find out how much it will cost you to have another person living in your house. » » »
