How much does an Au pair year cost?
A year out as an au pair is one of the most popular options for living abroad as either a gap year between school and university or as a break before, during or after your studies. For comparatively low costs, you can gain a lot of valuable experience abroad, grow as a person and make new friends.
As an au pair, you have the big advantage of not having to worry about your accommodation or meals as these will be provided by your host family. Some of our programmes also include the flights to and from your host family. Additionally, an all-inclusive comprehensive insurance package is included in our programme fees for non-EU destinations (except for New Zealand).
You are also entitled to a weekly allowance. How you want to spend this money is entirely up to you. Many au pairs choose to use their pocket money for their travels on weekends and holidays or at the end of the AuPairCare programme.
