  • Travel costs: Au Pairs must pay for their own travel expenses, unless the family agrees to pay a part or the whole amount.

    If you are not from a EU-member country the family has to take care of a suitable health insurance and liability insurance for the Au Pair, covering cases of illness, pregnancy, childbirth and accident.
