Worried sitter might not turn up prior to 2 week trip

Hello @julian42 and a very warm welcome to the Community Forum :slightly_smiling_face::wave:t2:

As @Twitcher mentioned, none of us can account for unexpected events, this could easily happen with someone you book who lives locally to you, just as it could with sitters from abroad and a majority of sits go ahead as planned without any issues at all.

Also as @Therese mentioned, if you can swap personal numbers and emails to make communication easier and we always find WhatsApp is the best way to stay in touch both before, during and sometimes even after the sit.

As @Smiley said TrustedHousesitters was originally set up in the UK and the head office is in Brighton. You will notice there are a vast majority of sits both in the UK and the US but there are many sits available across the world in places such as Thailand, Fiji, and Barbados to name but a few!

For reference once you are a member and once your listing is completed you can also add your TrustedHousesitters profile on to your Forum profile by following the attached link, should you wish. This will then enable others to offer you helpful advice and feedback and will also give your listing extra exposure!

If you are unsure how to do this, or if you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to ask, we are all more than happy to help.

Also, remember you can use the spyglass symbol at the top of the page next to the TrustedHousesitters logo and search for any questions that you may have as they have most likely already been answered on here and of course if not then please just ask! :blush:
