First launched in 2010, TrustedHousesitters.com is a platform that connects thousands of pet-owners with care-orientated sitters who will look after their home and pets for free, in exchange for a place to stay. It is easy to sign up for an annual membership, whether a sitter or owner, and includes a 24-hour Vet Advice Line, 24-hour membership support, as well as unlimited access to house sitters and pet owners worldwide.

 

Searching for a place to house sit is exceedingly simple, with the option to enter your preferred destination only or apply a range of filters to make search results more specific. These include dates, preferred duration, pet type (from dogs to reptiles) and suitability, such as whether the house sit is appropriate for those travelling with children. I particularly like the ability to tick a box marked ‘Flexible by +7/-7 days’ as this allows some leeway on either side of your chosen dates for house sitting.

 

After choosing your preferences and clicking on a house sit that takes your fancy, you will be shown a more detailed profile, including photos, an introduction, about the property and location and responsibilities. You can also find out who has previously house sat for them, as well as view on a map where approximately the property is located.

 

I found the website’s blog to be an infinitely useful resource for discovering what it’s like to housesit or offer your house over to a house sitter, while there are also a selection of videos featuring house sitter and pet owner’s experiences using the website.

 

One potential stumbling block to the website is the membership fee. If you easily find somewhere you would like to housesit, with your preferred dates and location then it is well worth the $100 per year fee. However, if you are not a flexible traveler, or only wish to use the platform for a short, one-off stay, it may prove itself to be expensive.

Pros
  • Wide range of filters to fine tune results
  • Ability to sign up to dual membership
  • Useful blog featuring articles and videos of people’s experiences, tips and advice
Cons
  • $100 USD annual membership fee is expensive if only looking for short stay

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
