How much pocket money do I have to pay my Au pair?

The pocket money we ask our host families to pay the aupair is a minimum of €110 per week.  As the average hours our host families ask their Au pair to be on duty lie between 22 and 30 hours per week – and a weekly €54 deduction is applicable for room and board – the approximate pocket money would amount to anything between €110 and €160 per week.

This depends on circumstances, e.g., how many hours per week you require assistance from your Au pair, whether the Au pair would have to spend a lot of money on bus fares when she wants to go out or go to her English class, whether or not you give your Au pair access to a car etc.
