13 Types of Accommodation to Choose From When Traveling
Housesitting was born when a very specific market gap became bigger: people wanting to travel, but not being able to due to their responsibilities back home, like pets or gardens. Sometimes, they’d just want the peace of mind of having someone taking care of their home and avoiding possible break-ins.
Basically, travelers stay at other people’s homes for free. They usually feed and walk the dogs (or play with the cats), do basic cleaning chores, and tend to the gardens or swimming pool. Most of the time they stay for at least a week, but month-long stays are not unheard of.
And you sometimes get access to the car! It can’t get better than that!
