Gold

If you choose our gold service then you will enjoy the lowest price. With this plan you pay £50 registration deposit up front and we then find you an au pair that you will be happy with and meets all your basic requirements. You will have a minimum choice of three candidates who meet all your requirements. If you are not happy with any of our choices then you are free to walk away before inviting any candidate although you would forfeit the registration deposit if we have found three candidates that do meet your basic requirements. You pay the balance outstanding when your invitation is accepted. Once the au pair has arrived you enjoy a 30 day replacement guarantee.

Silver - Our 'no initial outlay' plan

If you want to avoid any up front charges then maybe this is the plan for you. Here you are free to look at any of our au pair's summary information and to organise phone calls with those who you feel at suitable. When you are ready to choose someone then you pay us the full placement fee of £445.

Registration Deposit

With this plan you pay a £50 registration deposit at the beginning of the whole process. We know that you are serious about finding an au pair through us. You follow exactly the same matching processes listed above and when you are satisfied that you have found a good au pair that accepts your invitation then the balance (£345) of the placement fee is payable.

The above fees can be paid using PayPal allowing families to pay using any credit card. Note - There is an additional charge added to the fee if paying by credit card to cover some of the cost of offering payment by PayPal or credit card

Service Packages Fees

The £50 registration deposit is refundable if no suitable applicants can be provided that match basic requirements (age, sex, driving, smoking habits)

The full fee is payable within 7 days of our invoice date. Invoices not paid within 7 days will be subject to a surcharge of 10% initially and a further 5% each subsequent month on a compounding basis.

Weekly payment terms can be offered where the placement fee is spread over the length of the au pair placement and payment is made by direct debit. This is subject to a 20% surcharge on top of the fees in the table above. Example: A summer Au Pair is arranged for 10 weeks over the summer period and the fee is paid each week by direct debit at a rate of (£150 x 1.15)/10 = £172.50/10 or £17.20 per week.

For families who come to us for the first time for a summer Au Pair and then wish to continue with a long term Au Pair, 50% of the fee for the summer Au Pair will be discounted against the long term fee.
