The French Union of Au Pair Agencies has carefully selected two partners who provide specialised travel insurance for young people abroad: Au Pair, internships, language stay placements...
In an Au Pair's case, health coverage is particularly important. Everybody has a different profile and every host country has their own regulations which must be respected. It is necessary to be able to find a suitable solution which meets the needs of both Au Pairs and host families.
On the French insurance market you can now take out specialised insurance polices which have been designed with significant input from accredited agencies. As a result, these policies will cover all Au Pairs requirements, regardless of the country they are comng from or going to. .
The insurance must be taken out prior to leaving their home country to start the placement. Should an Au Pair wish to take out insurance after this time, they may be able to find an alternative policy.
WHY TAKE PRIVATE INSURANCE?
As the everyday life does not go as smooth as planned, it is important that an Au Pair can resume their responsibilities on a daily basis. The fact of being sick can sometimes be expensive and youth, like any of the host families, don't wish to support the expenses of doctors, medication, hospitalisation. Thus, insurance has the ability to cover a stay at a reseaonable/moderate price.
