What makes TrustedHousesitters different is the fair exchange between sitters and pet parents. Pet and travel loving sitters offer to care for a pet parents' home and their pets for free, in exchange for an unforgettable experience in a new location.
Here are just 5 reasons why our members love to sit for free:
1. Discover new places
As a TrustedHousesitters member, you can choose from tens of thousands of sits in over 150 countries throughout your annual membership. The opportunities really are endless!
2. Enjoy the company of pets
If you have a pet-shaped hole in your life, house and pet sitting is the perfect way to fill it! Spend time with furry friends and enjoy the feel good factor, knowing that you’ve helped pets stay happy at home while their owner's travel.
3. Save on the cost of travel
Accommodation can make up a third of the cost of your getaway, but with TrustedHousesitters you can stay for free in exchange for caring for homes and pets. You can also reduce your living costs as you’ll have access to a fully equipped home during your travels.
4. Experience a new way of living
House sitting can be a great way to experience new lifestyles and stay in places that you would never find on a booking site. Try out life on a hobby farm, in a city centre high rise, or by the sea. Stay for free in a multi-million dollar home, a historic country cottage, or a modern grand design!
5. Relax and unwind
From short weekend retreats to longer getaways, house and pet sitting provides a perfect way to escape day-to-day life. There have been a number of studies that show spending time with pets can also help reduce stress and improve your health!
