WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT HEALTH INSURANCE?

We strongly recommend that you organise insurance in your home country to cover you for the duration of your placement. Your policy should include cover for costly emergencies, repatriation and legal assistance. 

Au pairs from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland should travel with an EHIC card. These cards enable access to a limited amount of free healthcare (but are not a substitute for insurance).
