TrustedHousesitters is a global marketplace that is disrupting the pet care and travel industries. We connect a community of home and pet owners with sitters to solve a common two-sided problem – pet care and cost effective travel. Our consumer SaaS business model means that customers join for one annual fee. After that, sits take place as a trust-based, money-free exchange that sees owners enjoy worry-free travel while our sitters enjoy the company of pets and unlock a world of unique accommodation.

We enjoy exceptional customer retention rates driven by the fact that our owners and sitters realise the amazing value and incredible experiences we can facilitate. We have more five star reviews on Trustpilot than any other pet care or travel company.

All of our operations are based in our office next to the railway station in Brighton to make it simple for our team to travel to and from home. We are flexible with our working arrangements and are looking to continue with a blend of home and office working as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis.
