A UK house sitting company has arrived on the Costa del Sol after expanding to more than 130 countries.

TrustedHousesitters, which works like a free Airbnb for house and pet sitters, boasts more than 500,000 members globally.

The service, now available across Spain, allows homeowners to advertise for house sitters for when they are travelling or on holiday.

In return housesitters can stay for free in homes across the world.

The company has proven a hit, growing at a rate of 80% year-on-year since its inception and saving its members more than half a billion euros in accommodation and pet care costs.

Members must pay an €89 fee to join but it is nothing compared to the costs of paying directly for either service, and everything else is free going forward.

TrustedHousesitters has more five star reviews than any other company of its kind after facilitating more than two million nights of pet sitting.
