Au pair Germany - Costs and Benefits

Our au pair Germany programme is a very affordable way to spend 6 to 12 months in Germany. While you plan your au pair stay with us, you bear no financial risks. Payment of the matching fee is not due until you have chosen your host family. Because of the high demand of native English au pairs, the host families are willing to shoulder most of the costs involved with the program. Your accommodation, meals and your flights are paid for by your host family.
