Some people are already looking to later in 2021 for a holiday and booking housesitters to take care of pets and home while the are away. Others are planning on a trip over the Winter holidays. Have you made your plans yet?

We’d like to encourage you to plan ahead for housesitters if you have trips planned over the holidays to see family and friends or just to get away. Now is the time to get ready. We will help you as much as we can. Our philosophy is that we are all in this together. These are the steps she has taken so far:

  2. She chose a Premium account (£ 89 GB per year) to ensure she could get help online when needed
  3. Created a profile with photos of Daisy and the house, inc features of the property (i.e. Swimming pool)
  4. Posted a housesit advert stating the plans for a holiday in August, subject to Covid permitted travel
