Combined memberships: all you need to know

What is a combined membership?

Are you a pet owner with a passion for travel, meeting new people and keeping pets happy at home? We often talk about the benefits of being a sitter, or the benefits of being an owner, but the reality is many of us may fit into both of these categories. This can make the deciding which membership type to go for quite tricky - but it doesn’t have to be! 

Did you know that we offer a combined membership, which includes an owner and sitter membership for one low price? With a combined membership you can experience all the joys of house sitting, while benefiting from our community of sitters eager to take care of your pets where they’re happiest — at home.

What are the benefits?

Combined members really do get the best of both worlds…

  • Get unlimited access to caring pet sitters whenever you need
  • Get unlimited access to house sits with pets around the world
  • Gain first-hand experience of how the house and pet sitting process works from both perspectives – from applying for sits to creating a listing & choosing a sitter 
  • Owned a dog but always wanted a cat? Enjoy the opportunity to take care of different types of animals
  • Make new friends by sitting, or having sitters come to your home
  • Strengthen your future listings – whether it’s including extra information about your home or adding clearer photos, familiarity with how both house and pet sitting works will pay off when it comes to you needing pet care.

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at Trustpilot reviews from our happy combined members...

Is it really unlimited?

Just as you can buy an owner or sitter membership for an annual payment, you can also get a combined membership. However, unlike sitter or owner memberships, a combined membership means you have access to unlimited pet care from trusted sitters for whenever you are going away as well as the opportunity to apply for sits across the globe. 

How do I start my combined membership? 

A combined membership is just a fraction more than an owner or sitter membership. To sign up, simply select either an owner or sitter membership, and choose to upgrade to combined membership at the checkout. 

What if I’ve already paid for an owner or sitter membership?

You can upgrade anytime if you already have an owner or sitter membership! If you fancy upgrading to experience the benefits of being both an owner and a sitter, you can easily do this using our app or website.

Sign in to your TrustedHousesitters account, go to your name in the top right-hand corner, and select ‘Settings’. Once there, select ‘Membership’, located on the left of the screen.

Once you’re in the membership section of your account, you will see an option to ‘Add house sitter membership’ or ‘Add home & pet owner membership’

Once you have selected which type of membership you would like to add, you will be taken to the checkout page.
