Be properly insured for your foreign adventures
Working as an au pair abroad is such a great opportunity! You get to know the language and culture in a unique way. A lot needs to be organised: your journey, the arrangements with your host family, maybe even a residence permit. And of course you want to be properly insured abroad while you are au pairing. OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is perfect for this.
Insurance for au pairs
Insurance if you want to work as an au pair abroad. The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is not only for students, but also for you. The advantages:
- Good insurance for healthcare costs; you can add dental costs to your insurance
- With the package insurance you also insure household contents, liability, travel, legal assistance and accidents
- SOS insurance is included as standard
- You have flexible duration from 1 day to 5 years
- You also have insurance cover even if you come back to the Netherlands in between
Au pair abroad and healthcare costs
If you go abroad as an au pair, your personal situation will determine whether you will have to retain the mandatory Dutch national health insurance. For example, how long you will be staying abroad as an au pair and also if you earn a salary abroad.
If you are not covered by the Dutch national health insurance abroad as an au pair, the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance will give you proper healthcare costs cover. The insurance can also be a supplement if you go to a country where medical care is expensive; you will never receive higher reimbursement than what you would get from the Dutch national health Insurance.
You’d probably rather not think about it, but as an au pair you could experience set-backs abroad. What happens if you are liable for damages incurred by a third party or your luggage is lost or stolen? And what if a close family member is seriously ill or dies and you want to return home as soon as possible?
The supplementary package insurance of the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for those kinds of situations and covers household contents, liability, travel, legal assistance and accidents. The package insurance can be taken out separately or to supplement the health Insurance.
If you get ill while you are staying abroad as an au pair, it is comforting to know that SOS insurance is included in the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance. It includes covering the costs of repatriation to the Netherlands or evacuation if treatment is not possible locally and cannot be postponed.
Insurance for au pairs from age 15 up to 29
The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for young people from age 15 up to 29 wanting to work as an au pair abroad. If you don’t fall into this age category, go to OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance.
