FAQs - Au Pair for my family

Who pays for airfare / travel costs?

In the majority of cases, the au pair is responsible for all international travel costs.

The family pays for any travel beyond their closest international airport to smaller cities/towns, and transport from the airport to their house (eg hire car or taxi if they can’t meet their au pair).

Some families may choose to pay for their au pair’s arrival or departure flight, to help her arrive more quickly, or to reward a successful placement.
