Insurance information

for the au pair

You have decided for an au pair stay abroad. This will be a special year for you as cultural exchange is a great experience. At the same time, as an au pair you should make sure that you are covered for medical treatment and are well protected in case of emergency. With au pair insurance by CareMed you have comprehensive insurance coverage worldwide.

Host family commitments

In most countries your host family is obligated to take out health insurance, accident and liability insurance for you. Please discuss insurance options with them prior to your departure. Your travel insurance should start the day of your departure so that you are already covered during your trip.

Prior to your au pair year

Please contact your health insurance in your home country in order to discuss your insurance status during your au pair year abroad. In case of medical repatriation, CareMed will pay for the transportation costs to your home country. Further treatment costs should be paid by your health insurance at home.
