Imagine being able to stay in the most incredible accommodations while traveling – from European farmhouses to tropical beach villas – all in exchange for taking care of a cute pet. For around $100 a year, you can do just that with a company called Trusted Housesitters.
The concept is fairly simple, yet brilliant: it connects people who want to travel the world but are worried about leaving their pets behind, and trustworthy travelers who would be happy to look after their home and pets in exchange for accommodation.
You’ll need to establish a good reputation in order to get the job, and of course, secure the most beautiful houses to stay in. But if you’re willing to petsit in your town in exchange for reviews, it’s relatively simple to do. If you get someone to write you a character reference and have your ID documents checked online, you’ll have a better chance of getting that dream mansion getaway.
Then you’re ready to hit the road and housesit that mansion you’ve always wanted – all while keeping company with the cutest four-legged companion. Some people have even given up their jobs to do it!
