EPoP 032: Housesitting 101- Scoring Amazing Accommodations Around the World with Andy Peck

Posted By Trav

Housesitting

Villas in Tuscany.

Chateaus in the Alps.

Penthouses in New York.

What if when you traveled, you could stay in these types of places?

And better yet, what if they were free?

With housesitting, they can be!  

All over the world, people are opening up their homes for others to come and stay in while they are gone.  And in return for looking after their home and sometimes their pet, you get to stay in their place, for free!

It really is a win-win for both parties involved, and explains why housesitting is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing ways to travel.

Today, Andy Peck, the Godfather of Housesitting and founder of the biggest housesitting site in the world, Trusted Housesitters, sits down with us to talk about the ins and outs of housesitting.

From how to give yourself the best chance to score your first housesit to some of the best places he’s ever seen, Andy breaks down housesitting from A-Z.

Oh, and he also gives Extra Pack of Peanuts listeners a special discount on a Trusted Housesitter membership (see instructions below)!

So if you’re someone who is interested in trying your hand at housesitting, this is the podcast for you.  Andy’s tips will have you scoring your dream housesit in no time!
