House Sitters UK

The largest pet & house sitting site exclusively for the UK

COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 means travel restrictions for the next few months which means an impact on house sitting, and travel in general.

These are challenging times for all of us, especially those who love to travel and are planning to house sit or engage a house sitter while they are away. At the moment we all need to do what we can to take care of ourselves and others. It’s important we practice social isolation and follow the recommended protocols so we can protect the vulnerable in our community.

Make sure you check the latest protocols:

With the current recommendations from our government, we all have to cut out any unnecessary travel for the time being. However, it is important to remember that this is only temporary. There will come a time where we can travel again. We understand the impact this has on you as a house sitter and the uncertainty you may be feeling given the current health crisis.

This is why we are offering all new members an extra 6 months membership free when they sign up. We’ve also contacted all our homeowners who have current ads to ask to remove or update their ad to keep the site as up to date as possible.

This way you can continue planning your future travel while you are isolating at home, and you can look for house sits as they become available. Many of us will be excited to travel again once it is safe to do so which means many more opportunities for house sitters when the situation improves.

In the meantime, take care of each other, follow the protocols and stay safe and well.

Please know that you can contact us if you have any questions or need assistance at any time.

As a community we will get through this together and go onto many more travel adventures.

The team.
