The partnership will ensure that TrustedHousesitters members can check live flight prices by using the site’s new ‘TravelFinder’ feature, powered by Skyscanner, during the process of applying for a sit.
Members across 140 countries will then be able to book these flights the moment they accept their house sits, helping them to make savings as they travel the world taking care of pets and staying in homes for free.
Jess Stephens, Chief Marketing Officer at TrustedHousesitters, said: “Thousands of flights are booked each week as a direct result of TrustedHousesitters, so we wanted to find a partner who could help our members find the best possible fares at the earliest opportunity. TravelFinder from TrustedHousesitters is an instant way to calculate the cost of flights and work out a travel budget, helping more people to plan more house sits all year round.”
The new partnership was formed following feedback from members of TrustedHousesitters, who have flown more than 100 million miles between them to look after pets all over the world since the site was launched in 2010. Many said that although the process of finding free accommodation is simple with TrustedHousesitters, they would also like the option to arrange their flights at the same time.
Mike Ferguson, Senior Commercial Manager at Skyscanner commented, “We are always keen to partner with innovative and forward-thinking companies to provide our cutting-edge flight search tools. Skyscanner powers travel search for over 1000 businesses globally through our White Label and API products, and we’re delighted to be providing TrustedHouseSitters’s users with the ability to search for their flights as they apply for house sits all over the world.”
