we are planning to arrive to Madrid for 3 months (January until March), so i will join an Art academy. I was wondering whether we have in the platform an option of Matchmaking, meaning, for example, people that live in Madrid and have this wish of going away for their dream trip for 3 months, if they will know that we are coming to Madrid for 3 months, and they will have someone caring for their beloved pet, they will go on planing the trip and choosing the dates that will allow them a quite trip away from home…
if we do not have this option yet, maybe we can open a Matchmaking category, where people can post their wishes\plans…
what do you say?
That’s a great idea!
There isn’t that facility… but it’s a brilliant idea
What you are proposing sounds like a house swap and THS is not build around that idea. There are several other sites specializing in that, just Google search " house swap". In many years of THS membership I’ve seen it done only once. There is a young THS couple living in a very desired country and also in a beach city who are open to house swapping but you will still need to apply and get approved and then they have to be interested in your location and your pets.
it’s possible if both members are combined members ( sitters and homeowners ) and both want to travel at same time and swap -
just to clarify are you a homeowner who would be offering your home in return , as a swap what is your location?
HI @Pine , No, THS doesn’t have this option. What you can do is set up a saved search for sits in Spain and you will be notified when listings are posted. The fact that you would already be there will make you appealing to HO.
So, do a search on the app for sits in Spain including those without current dates and click on the star to favorite each listing that looks good to you. Also do a search on the app for Spain with your available dates. It’s important to do these on the app as opposed to the website as the notifications arrive sooner this way. You have to be quick to get your application in before it reaches five and the listing goes into reviewing mode.
