When it comes to accommodation options, a traveler has many choices. As a ‘luxury traveler’ you would normally find yourself at resorts, luxury hotels and boutique B&Bs. However, long term travelers need to find ways to stretch their dollar. House sitting is fast becoming one of the more popular ways to do so.
House sitting allows you to live in luxury homes without the price tag attached. Not only is house sitting friendly on the wallet its also a great way to experience a country as a local. Let’s not forget the benefit of having your own kitchen and laundry from time to time!
Not paying for accommodation allows you to treat yourself in other areas such as meals out, or it could mean the difference between a 4 week vacation and permanent travel. Staying in hotels and resorts is a lot of fun but staying in one every night is not a viable option for long term travelers. The money you will save during your house sitting periods means you can afford to splurge on a luxury resort in between house sits, without worrying about breaking the bank.
