When you book a last minute nanny you'll be presented with two options:
The cost of an emergency nanny depends on what part of the country you need a temporary nanny.
As a rule of thumb prices are set at:
Payrolled by Parent
Usually £10 per hour across the UK
Payrolled by Nanny Agency
London: £18 per hour
Home Counties: £17 per hour
Elsewhere: £15 per hour
To check the exact charges for your area please choose Nanny in the Search at the top of the page, and enter your postcode.
Payrolled by Parent: If you choose to payroll the temporary nanny yourself, you'll be charged a nanny agency fee (£4) for each hour you book. This fee goes directly to the agency we use and is charged to your credit card once your booking is complete. You'll be advised when you book how much you'll need to pay your nanny directly at the end of each day.
Payrolled by Nanny Agency: If you elect for the nanny agency to take care of payrolling the nanny, your full booking amount is charged to your credit card once your booking is complete and the hours confirmed by the agency. This includes our 5% booking fee.
Petrol costs: If you require the nanny to drive their own car, to pick up or take your child somewhere, you'll be advised by the nanny agency of any additional costs to cover petrol used. You will usually pay the nanny directly for the petrol costs, regardless of who payrolls.
