Homesitters provides a live-in service, not a popping-in service. We charge per 24-hour period – which means that we are better able to protect your property and ensure that your pets will enjoy their normal routines and regular companionship in their home.
The minimum cost of hiring a homesitter is £52.00 a day (2017) + VAT. This includes our 24/7 emergency back-up, the homesitter's daily food allowance (paid directly to the homesitter), but excludes mileage as this will be determined when a homesitter is assigned to your booking (40p per mile). We normally make a 48-hour (two day) minimum charge, but we are happy to stay for shorter periods.
Our employee will not be absent from your property for more than three consecutive hours during daylight, or one hour after dark. If you require someone to be on the premises continuously 24 hours a day, we will arrange for a couple to stay in your home, at an extra charge to cover the second homesitter, as both will be our employees for the duration of the assignment.
