Liability losses within the scope of your work as an au pair are common and you should be covered to face them.
As an au pair you look after the kids of your host family and spend the majority of time in their living spaces. That is why it is important that the scope of the liability insurance also includes losses towards the host family. With this liability insurance for au pairs, bodily injury as well as damages to the immovable and movable property of the host family are covered.
For example, losing the house key during your time as an au pair quickly results in a discussion about the costs for a new lock. with this insurance you will cover the risk of key loss.
