Au pair insurance
It is highly advisable that au pairs have a valid health, accident and liability insurance during their stay in a host country.
A comprehensive au pair insurance provides the basis for a carefree au pair stay for au pairs and host families. A stay in a foreign country brings a unique set of insurance needs. Home-country coverage – even for EU au pairs travelling to other EU countries – does not adequately cover all the situations that can occur in a foreign country. Special au pair insurance combines travel health insurance, accident insurance, liability insurance, baggage insurance and emergency assistance insurance to give a comprehensive package that fulfils the unique insurance requirements of au pairs and host families.
The health insurance coverage that au pairs have in their home countries typically does not cover all the needs that can arise in foreign countries – this is the case for au pairs from EU countries and from non-EU countries. In Germany, for example, host families are obligated to insure their au pairs as specified by the Bundesagentur für Arbeit.
In our section Info host countries, host families and au pairs can find the insurance regulations which apply for the respective host countries and who should bear the costs. We recommend that au pairs clarify in advance with their host families details of the insurance coverage during the au pair stay.
