Have you ever wondered how some long-term travelers are able to afford a life on the road? After all, sleeping in hotels can get expensive and easily break your travel budget.
To answer this question, we turned to the traveling couple behind Hecktic Travels to introduce you to the wonderful world of house-sitting. Learn how they successfully spent the past year traveling to Honduras, Ireland, Belgium, the UK and Spain without paying for hotel accommodations!
There are several websites that match potential house sitters with home owners, and many of them have different areas in which they excel and have lots of listings. Wannabe housesitters should start by perusing all of the available housesits on each site to see which might be the best fit (it is possible to search through all jobs before buying a membership on most sites).
Consider buying memberships to more than one website to improve your chances, spend a good amount of time setting up an attractive profile, and sign up for email alerts based on desired locations.
