How much does an au pair year cost?

A year out as an au pair is one of the most popular options for living abroad as either a gap year between school and university or as a break before, during or after your studies. For comparatively low costs, you can gain a lot of valuable experience abroad, grow as a person and make new friends. 

As an au pair, you have the big advantage of not having to worry about your accommodation or meals as these will be provided by your host family. Our Au pair USA programme fees also include the flights to your host family as well as the return flight from either your host family or any other airport in the United States. Additionally, an all-inclusive comprehensive insurance package for 12 months is already included in the US programme fees and a 6-month travel insurance for au pairs in Australia.

You are also entitled to a weekly allowance. How you want to spend this money is entirely up to you. Many au pairs choose to use their pocket money for their travels on weekends and holidays or at the end of the AuPairCare programme.
