One of the questions people always ask me is how do I finance all my travels & photography?
Housesitting is one of the ways that helps me to keep my costs lower. I first began housesitting in 2016 as a way to travel slower and save money.
In addition, looking after awesome pets is an added bonus too! It’s also a great way to practice pet photography.
If you’re in the United Kingdom, House Sitters UK is the largest and most popular house sitting website which I would highly recommend you to join if you are interested in becoming a house sitter.
In return for free accommodation, as a house sitter you need to care and look after the home owners pets, home & garden while they are away.
Your job is to make sure that the pets are happy and the home is secure. Therefore giving the owner peace of mind that their home is safe in your hands.
The affordable fee for a 12 month membership through House Sitters UK, depending on location, can be less than half the price of a single night’s accommodation. Therefore, if you complete just one house sit, you’ll already have made it worth the money!
If you’re a homeowner looking for a house sitter to look after your space and pets while you are on holiday, it is free for you to make a listing on House Sitters UK – so get listing today!
You can also message sitters you like the look of directly to ask if they are available on the dates you are away.
Here is a handy guide to help you get started!
