It’s often difficult to leave your adorable pets at home when heading out on vacation. It’s easier, however, if you know you have someone trustworthy to look after them.

Trusted Housesitters (h/t MensXP.com) is a service that works for those who love to travel but have pets at home.

Here's the kicker, though: It's also for those who love to travel and take care of other people’s pets.

Becoming a member—for $119 for a one-year membership—gives you access to animal lovers that will be in the area who can take care of your furry family members. It also offers the peace of mind that comes with vetted personnel. It promises verification that includes, “global identity with I.D. document cross-checks and criminal background checks.”

New survey reveals regional and gender divides in US travel

  New survey reveals regional and gender divides in US travel Travelers living on the US West Coast are more apt to seek out adventure and exploration when planning their vacation, while residents in the Northeast prefer holidays that offer rest and relaxation. That's one of several interesting conclusions out of a new survey conducted by Cheapflights that looks at American travel habits and travel aspirations.

“People still want to travel and live their lives,” says Aaron Hirschhorn, co-founder and CEO of DogVacay. The main concern, Hirschhorn tells TIME, is the guilt factor that makes traveling less enjoyable for pet owners .

If you happen to be a traveler who can’t quite scratch together money for an expensive hotel or Airbnb, you have the option to care for someone’s pets as you stay in their pad.

In this case, you create a profile and explain what makes you so awesome with animals. After the vetting process —which includes what is described as an initial Skype interview—you have access to opportunities that come up in the area you live or where you may be visiting.

Simply apply to the homeowner and cross your fingers that you lock down a sweet gig, like an essentially free stay in Tuscany, London or anywhere else in the world that boasts Trusted Housesitters.

It sounds like a brilliant idea, but one borne out of near tragedy. The Daily Mail interviewed the website’s founder, Andy Peck. He explains that his love of travel had him scale the Andes where he became extremely sick back in 2010:

Pet Owners , This Free Pet Care Solution Will Help You Travel More in 2017. Vets agree that pets are happier at home, adapting much better to a new carer than a new environment. Pet sitters are real pet lovers who want to spend their vacation time with animals.

“As I was recovering I couldn't stop thinking about how precarious life is and how I needed to do something meaningful with my life.”

A quick stop home to the United Kingdom led to a trip to contemplate bigger questions in Thailand, where Peck once again fell ill—this time with Guillain-Barré syndrome. He would find solace in a chance trip to Spain to housesit and take care of a dog named Dave.

Peck continues, “It's no exaggeration to say that Dave changed my life. I realized that everyone should have the chance to spend time with pets, but of course it is not always practical. Then I saw a way to make it happen.”

You get a sense of the passion as Peck and fiancée Rachel still house sit despite the successful endeavor: “I've made lifelong friendships through house sits, and had experiences I would never have dreamed of having otherwise. The fact that Rachel and I have also been able to make a successful business out of it really is a dream come true.

The Cheapest Place to Travel in April

  The Cheapest Place to Travel in April Travelers who want to count on getting a great deal in the month of April don’t need to wait for an epic flash sale. According to data pulled by global hotel booking site Booking.com, Avalon, California is the best place to travel this April.Of course, it’s hard to imagine a bad time to visit Avalon (a city on Catalina Island, just off the coast of Southern California). But April is just before the peak summer season, meaning the crowds are particularly thin this time of year.

Our Pet Traveler Story. Pet Travel is here to help you prepare your pet for travel . For pet owners flying with their pets in-cabin on United, note a new airline policy: by April we will issue bright colored bag tags to customers traveling with in-cabin pets .

TrustedHousesitters matches travelers looking for a place to stay — somewhere with more local character than a regular hotel — with pet owners who need someone to take care of their home and four-legged friend while they're away.

“It is about so much more than saving money. Looking after someone's pet while you stay in their house is so much more rewarding than staying in a hotel.”

That dream is now a terrific opportunity for those who don’t want to sacrifice travel because they have a menagerie at home that deserves tender care and love.
