Contact without applying

Sometimes owner says : "Read through the listing and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions ". I saw that in several listings.
How to ask a question without applying. It seems to me that you can only write to an owner by checking the box : apply for these dates.
Thank you for the answer

This question has already been asked but I haven’t found the answer.

Hi Flora, I think you are correct, unless you apply or are invited to a sit it’s not possible to start a message conversation. The only other situation I can think of where you can do this is if you’ve sat for someone before, but that’s not a help for your query.

Let me tag @Katie-MembershipServices in case there is a way that I’m not aware of.

Thank you for your quick answer and of course you can tag.
I suspected it
Have a good day in Bourgogne :grinning:


Awesome, another person with my same q & would love any feedback!


Thank you Flora and you have a good day too!! The sun is shining here and the birds are singing :slight_smile:


Hi Flora.

Thank you for asking this question.

Vanessa is correct, you can only message the owner if they have live dates, i.e actively looking for a sitter, or if you have been in contact with the owner previously.

It is likely this message is meant for when they do have live dates, that sitters can reach out to them and ask more questions about the sit.
