What if you could travel in a more rewarding way and not pay for accommodation while you’re at it?
Enter: house sitting!
With house sitting, pet owners offer up their home as a place to stay (for free) while the house sitter takes care of their home and pets (also for free). It’s a win-win for both sides! Beyond the tremendous cost savings, house sitting is also a great way to make connections with fellow travelers AND bond with a new furry friend.
Maybe you’ve heard of house sitting and are curious, but think it sounds too good to be true, are unsure how to do it, and don’t know where to even get started. While house sitting is much less daunting than you might think, there is a bit more to it than meets the eye. Yes, house sitting technically means not paying for accommodation, but there is real responsibility that comes with caring for others’ beloved animals and home. If you’re down with that, house sitting could be your golden ticket to expanding your travel horizons.
In this session, Sam will cover:
- What house sitting is (and importantly, what it’s not)
- Benefits of house sitting
- Where to find house sits
- How to secure your first house sit
- ...and more!
