We have flexible pricing options to help make becoming an au pair in New Zealand as easy as possible for you. You can choose to have us book your flights and insurance for you, or book them with your preferred provider. 

As all our au pairs come from different corners of the world, the cost to join our programme differs. The programme fee will be dependent on your departure port as well as whether you’d like to use our services to help you book your insurance and flights. For specific costs, please contact our team.
