Self-match service

With the self-match service, the host family found their own Au Pair. The au pair can be found for example via www.aupair-world.nl.
Au Pair International’s fee varies depending on the country of origin of the Au Pair. At the self- match service it is customary that the au pair pays (part of) the return ticket herself (this is optional).

The self- match service package includes the following:

  • Screening of the chosen Au Pair;
  • Registration of the host family, including an extensive information guide;
  • Facilitating insurance for the Au Pair and assistance in the booking of a return flight for the Au Pair;
  • Supervising the exchange year, monitoring the relationship between the host family and the Au Pair;
  • An exciting excursion program for the Au Pair, which include five free events;
  • A free Welcome Meeting for new au pairs;
  • A compensation scheme in case of a mismatch (see the alinea about Mismatch below);
  • Suggestions and tips for the year and the fulfillment of legal obligations.
