Au pair insurance – A necessary expense, but who should pay?

The question who can best pay for your au pair insurance needs to be discussed openly by everyone involved. This certainly means that you as the au pair and your host family need to talk about this together. Perhaps your parents can also be involved and make a contribution to this important expense.

Focusing on the facts

As you think about au pair insurance and look for a way to manage it with your host family and your parents, you should all be clear about a few basic facts:

  • An international stay brings many unclear situations regarding insurance cover. The best way to know that you're really covered is have insurance that is specifically designed to cover young people during a stay abroad.
  • Insurance coverage for young travellers is not so expensive. For au pair stays arranged in Europe, the standard premium is less than 25 EUR per month.
  • Good preparation is in everybody's best interest. An au pair stay is a great adventure that clearly benefits you and your host family. Economizing with insurance protection in this context simply doesn't make sense.

Who pays for the insurance is a point that needs to be decided. That this point is clarified and that insurance cover is in place for the duration of your au pair stay should be a matter of course.

Our partner DR-WALTER can give you all the information you need to handle this important aspect of your au pair stay.
