HOUSE SITTING PLATFORMS – INTERNATIONAL…
When we did our first house sit, in Sydney where we were living, we had no idea house sitting was the thing that could literally take us all over the world. Now, since 2013, we have done more than 100+ house sits in all sorts of locations, weather, and environments, with some amazing pet love along the way. It has been an absolute blast, and we still get super excited about our ‘next sit’.
Here are our Top Picks for international house sitting platforms that can literally take you all over the world with free accommodation.
The oldest house sitting platform, we find terrific sits for all of our international travels… and their price is still the same years later!
The biggest platform. With THS you will find sits in 60+ countries… but they can be a little competitive, especially for new sitters.
We love Nomador and the incredible lady that runs it. Nomador has loads of sits all over the world, Plus Nomador Stopovers for sitters.
Lamia who runs House Sit Match is a true matchmaker. Providing more personalized service for sits mainly in the UK and Europe.
HOUSE SITTING PLATFORMS – COUNTRY SPECIFIC…
There are also house sitting websites that focus just on one particular country or region. When we’ve house sat in the USA, Mexico, Canada, The UK, and Australia, (and New Zealand has them too), we have found some great sits to fill in our dates using these more regional platforms.
AGGREGATE SITE – HOUSE SIT SEARCH
A FREE service that saves hours of searching on the house sitting platforms individually. Type in your preferred location and dates, and this search engine goes to work scouring many of the house sitting platforms to show you what’s available.
TRAVELING IN BETWEEN SITS
While we have enjoyed 95% free accommodation around the world with house sitting, there are still those times when dates just don’t line up. For these times, when we are not visiting friends or relatives, we jump into a unique Airbnb or book a cool place through Booking.com. We have racked up the maximum Genius rewards on Booking.com and that really pays off now with discounts and upgrades.
We are also massive fans of Skyscanner for finding our flights and cheapest dates to travel (using their ‘Everywhere’ search function). Rome to Rio is also great for researching the best transport options.
FROM OUR TRAVELING MATES
The one thing we have loved most about our travels is the community. When you leave home indefinitely somehow you get another family to connect with… sometimes even in person! These are our like-minds, our fellow free-spirited adventurers that also happen to be super creative and entrepreneurial.
Here’s a selection of some of their projects that we know you’ll love too!
Our long-time friends Marc & Julie have been RV’ing through the US since 2014 and have racked up some amazing stories & wisdom in that time. This book will help you decide if RV’ing life is for you and how to make the transition.
I think ‘Hacks’ is our middle name, because as travelers, that’s one thing you master pretty quickly… so it’s great to see Marc & Julie’s latest book full of amazing and ingenious hacks for road travel, in whatever size vehicle you have.
We were pretty stoked to actually be included in this National Geographic book, writing a chapter for our good friends Mike & Anne, the world’s longest honeymooners. There is some great couple destinations in this book!
Mike & Anne are back in the book all about Glamping. We’ve not done glamping yet, but as hardcore Aussie outback campers we’re looking forward to some more luxurious camping in our 50’s! We’re getting this book to try it out in the US
