AuPair.com - With or without an Au Pair Agency?

Once you've found on AuPair.com a host family, the question arises whether you still should consider to consult a local agency. The planning of your stay abroad using an agency has the following advantages:

  • The Agency may assists you with the visa application
  • You have a local contact person who can help you with problems
  • The host family was reviewed by the Agency
  • There are usually Au Pair meetings organized
If you decide to travel as an Au Pair to New Zealand without an agency, you should inform yourself very well. Much of the information you'll find at Au Pair Wiki.

Living in a host family, actively participate in family life and responsible tasks such as child care take over; This is all part of the job of an Au Pair. You will also improve your language skills; either by daily active speaking the English language, or even more intense by attending a language course on site.
