How much does it cost to have a summer au pair?

  • An au pair receives room and board when she (or he) lives together with your family.
  • This means that your au pair's living expenses are basically taken care of, and the additional payment your au pair receives is seen as pocket money in most countries (and not as a standard wage).
  • A summer au pair earns the same amount of pocket money like regular au pairs. The amount varies from country to country.  
  • So with au pairing you can use the existing infrastructure of your household to lower your childcare costs.
