House sitting is the best way to travel the world luxuriously and cheaply: by looking after homeowners' pets and houses you can travel the world rent-free. 

That's what we did for three years straight and one of the reasons we started this travel blog about house sitting. Since we've had some amazing experiences house sitting all over the world for the past three years, we want to help you out and one of the many ways we can do that is by giving you a TrustedHouseSitters Discount Code 

(click on that link and your discount will be automatic – price goes from $119 to $107.10):

Why Choose TrustedHouseSitters?

There are lots of house sitting websites out there, but in our opinion TrustedHouseSitters is matchless. In the beginning, we signed up for lots of different house sitting websites (MindMyHouse, Nomador and Housecarers, etc.)  but TrustedHouseSitters is the one we had the most success with.

And what successes we had, we couldn't believe it! Initially, I was thrilled at the idea of just living rent free, I never imagined it would be in such beautiful countries and houses. Having come from a low-income family background, I never imagined I would be able to live in a house with a pool, for example. 

Through TrustedHouseSitters we found over 30 house sits across 3 different continents, giving us 3 years of free accommodation. And the majority of the houses we sat through them have been luxury house sits.

Is TrustedHouseSitters Worth it?

$119/year (or rather, $107.10/year with your discount code), might seem like a lot upfront, so is TrustedHouseSitters worth it?

Firstly, think for a minute about how much you pay on rent or your mortgage, on bills and utilities (electricity, gas, water, internet etc.) per month. Make a rough estimate of how much that is a year. Even if you've paid off your mortgage I would imagine that your bills are higher than $107.10 per year. House sitting is by far one of the cheapest ways to live.

And as for travelling, you could easily spend $107.10 a night in some countries, and even in the cheapest of countries and in the grottiest of hostels, it's not going to last you much longer than a few weeks. Put simply, even with the sign-up fee, house sitting is by far one of the cheapest ways to travel. 

That's all very well and good – but what if you sign up and don't get a house sit? That's just $107.10 down the drain. 

I'm not going to lie and say that you sign up and automatically get house sits. In some ways, house sitting is like a job – in that you have to be professional and apply in the right manner. And, like applying for jobs, you often have to apply for many house sits before you get one. 

Once you've got your sit, you still have to be professional about it (respect the house and pets), but essentially you are living as you usually would (with your own routine, just slightly modified to fit the pets in).

My point is that if you sign up and do nothing you are very unlikely to get a house sit, but if you sign up and follow our advice you are very likely to get a house sit: 

How to become a house sitter

After signing up (see above), here are some things that you can do to make sure you get your first house sits:

  • Fill out your profile honestly and clearly, don't sell yourself short – show the homeowners what you have to offer;
  • Make sure you upload profile pictures – ones with sunglasses imply you have something to hide, opt for ones without. Photos with you and pets are always a great idea;
  • House sit for your friends and family to get some good references;
  • Apply, apply, apply – don't just apply for your dream house sit, apply for any and all house sits that you would love to do and that you're capable of doing (aka only apply for ones where you are free for the dates, you have the money to get there and know you can handle the animals)

More useful information about house sitting

House sitting gives you free accommodation in exchange for looking after pets. But when it comes to other costs, that depends on the individual house sit.

Some house sits (especially in countries like Costa Rica) will ask for a contribution to the bills. Personally, we don't do these house sits as the cost of the homeowners covering the bills is way cheaper than them paying for pet care (not to mention that the pets are a million times happier at home than in a pet home, and that's something you can't put a price on).

Other costs to consider are:

Car hire

Some homeowners are happy to leave the car for you to use, others aren't. It depends on the house sit. Personally, if a car has to be used for the pets (e.g. to take the pet to a favourite park or to take them to a vet in case of an emergency), we think it's only fair that the homeowner lends us their car. Bear in mind, many car hire companies are not happy having pets in their cars.

As for car insurance, this varies from country to country (and hence why some homeowners aren't keen to lend you theirs). In Australia, it's the car itself that gets insured, whereas in the UK it's the person. Whatever happens, make sure car insurance is covered by you or by them – it's an absolute must.

Getting to the house sit

Most homeowners will happily pick you up from a local airport, train station or bus station (just like they would if you were a family or friend that was visiting). The cost of getting to the house sit is up to you though, so think carefully about whether you can afford flights/train tickets before you apply.

We always check on kiwi (skypicker) before applying to a house sit, because it's by far the best flight comparison website out there: it finds the actual cheapest flights; it finds the most convenient flights; and it has the special kiwi guarantee (if your flight is delayed or cancelled, Kiwi will offer you an alternative flight for free, your money back and more including overnight accommodation). 

To find out more about Kiwi and for a full break down on how I make big savings on flights (without credit cards or signing up for anything, just by using a few travel blogger tricks I learnt from travelling for five years) check out this post: How to find cheap flights (and how to do it environmentally).

Who pays for food whilst house sitting

Food isn't expected by house sitters but it is often given by homeowners – often to a very generous extent which is great. Just be clear about what can and can't be eaten: some homeowners ask you to replace anything you have eaten, others are happy for you to have the odd bit of flour or rice, others will deck out their storage cupboards and fridge for you and insist you eat everything, it depends on the sit. 

As for the animal's food – that should always be provided by the homeowner (it's often worth reminding them before you arrive that they should make sure there's enough food for the animals). For long-term house sitting, you might have to get the animal's food yourself (especially if it's supposed to be fresh, etc), in which case the homeowners should provide you with the money for this, but again it's good to remind them.
