An Au Pair receives several benefits in exchange for help with the child care. One of these benefits is regular pocket money. This money helps the Au Pair to bear some personal extra costs. As pocket money is one of the Host Family’s expenses
, we would like to share approximative rates in different countries.
The amount may vary depending on the Host Family, the working hours and the host country. If an Au Pair wants to babysit some extra days, the Host Family can give her some extra holidays
in the future.
In addition to pocket money, the Au Pair will get full board and accommodation
at the Host Family’s home during the whole stay. This will give both sides the opportunity to experience a cultural exchange
. Families may also help their Au Pairs with other expenses like mobile phone, transportation or allow using their car in free time.
Below you can find a list of the most popular host countries
and the Au Pair wages along with the maximum working hours. These rates are official and must be respected. We try to give you the most up-to-date information as possible, but as regulations in your country may change, please do not forget to gather all information from your local authorities as well.
