What does Sitters cost?

Costs are split between Sitters agency fees (membership and booking fees, which are charged to your card) and payment to your sitter for the hours they have worked (which you pay direct to them at the end of the booking).

The cost of arranging childcare is split between membership and booking fees because this allows us to offer you the best value. Membership is kept to a minimum to benefit both occasional users and regular customers.
