Trip overview

Embrace your passion for travel and children and experience a new life overseas on our Au Pair in the US trip. Become part of an American household and help care for the children of a local, loving family whilst you form a close bond with the host parents. Spend your days inspired in the concrete jungle, cruising from coast to coast, ticking off jaw-dropping landmarks or taking the kids to your local national park.

We offer the complete package for those wanting to kickstart their au pair journey, and most importantly, ensure you are matched with a safe and welcoming host family and home. Our team will get you sorted with all the essentials from visa assistance, to finding an approved host family before you go, bank account advice, accommodation nights to use when you please, 24/7 support, and more. You’ll be more than ready to begin your exciting au pair adventure. Plus, regularly chat with your host family prior to taking off, so you’ll know all about them before you meet them face-to-face!

Completely immerse yourself in a new culture, make lifelong friends and, best of all, break away from your usual routine back home as you embark on an adventure to au pair in the USA. With the freedom to explore the country’s incredible beauty in your time off or paid trips with your host family, this experience is perfect for a first-time traveller or someone ready to experience a genuine, local American lifestyle.
