Your optional insurance package

Are you planning on becoming an au pair in England and wonder why you should pay extra money for an au pair insurance package? True, with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) you are entitled to free medical and dental care from a health care provider connected to England's public healthcare system. However, you should keep in mind that our au pair insurance package does not only entail health insurance. It also includes liability (both personal and professional liability) and baggage insurance. Furthermore, the insurance package comes with many other benefits, including but not limited to:

- no excess

- 24/hour assistance 

- unlimited coverage

- most sports are covered
