We help home and pet owners find trusted sitters to care for their home and pets while away
Norway being an expensive destination, I hope this concept grows bigger. People are often intimidated by Norwegian prices and this could help many afford the trip. I recently heard about this particular site, they seem reliable and have good recommendations. So I’m spreading the word 🙂
It’s not free, you need to pay a membership fee (from $29/1 month to $79/1 year) plus some House Sitters charge an extra fee, but from a tight-budget perspective:
- It is cheaper than a hotel or even some hostels (to compare, check this list)
- It is a way-more-comfortable alternative to couchsurfing! (especially if your “Backpacking”-days are behind you 😉 )
If you know of any other House Sitting networks, please tell us!
