Au pair Australia: Programme fees and benefits

Our programme fees for an au pair stay in Australia are fixed package prices without hidden costs. If you plan on traveling to Australia as an au pair you don't have to worry about taking financial risks - you have to pay nothing up front and the first steps of your application are 100% non-binding! You commit to the programme only after you have matched with a host family that fits you by signing a contract and paying the programme fees.
