Childcare and Nannies

Here at Oliver's Travels, we know an extra pair of hands on deck can be invaluable to your family holiday. That's why we've teamed up with a trusted portfolio of babysitters and nannies to offer you the option to book childcare for all or part of your villa holiday.

Whether you're looking for a few hours' babysitting to keep the kids happy whilst the adults indulge in a spot of wine-tasting, a live-in nanny to offer a helping hand throughout your stay, or something in between, please contact us with your requirements via this form.

The booking process

1. Make an enquiry via our booking form. If you know the package you would like, please specify this.

2. My Travelling Nanny will aim to send you one or more suitable profiles via email within a couple of days.

3. Let My Travelling Nanny know whether you would like to meet/chat with any of the nannies. Please note that the family will be responsible for paying the nanny's reasonable travel costs to any meeting. With your permission, your contact details will be passed to the nanny to arrange the meeting.

4. When you are completely happy with the nanny's suitability, you will be emailed a booking form to complete and return. A 50% deposit is payable to secure the booking.

5. The remaining 50% is payable 28 days before the placement begins. For short-notice placements (less than 28 days' notice), the full amount is payable on booking. A short-notice fee may also be payable.

6. My Travelling Nanny will also send out a tailor-made agreement between the nanny and family to take with you for peace of mind. My Travelling Nanny will book travel insurance for the nanny and add the cost to the invoice.
