Live rent-free around the world by helping homeowners with school lessons, DIY and cooking | The Sun

HOLIDAYMAKERS can now get free accommodation, in exchange for personal services.

A new site called Kindroom offers homeowners and guests the chance to come together for a mutually beneficial relationship.

For example, someone looking for a room has the possibility to move in somewhere either rent-free or at heavily reduced price, in return for their skills.

It could be tutoring children, help with DIY, or even cooking cleaning.

Whatever they have to offer, they can exchange it for an affordable room in someone's home.

While there are a number of lets available through Kindroom within the UK, there are also plenty abroad too in places like Poland and India.

Swapping jobs for accommodation isn't necessarily a new concept, with people offering services in exchange for rooms in other ways elsewhere.

Nicki Grihault and her partner Nick Luft left London in 2013 to go travelling and don't pay for their accommodation.

The save their pennies instead by using the website Trusted House Sitters.

In an article in the Guardian, they revealed how they paid the £99 membership fee and created a profile that included details about their experiences with pets, gardening and other domestic duties.

Once they'd arrived at their first house sit in Country Wicklow, Ireland, they were greeted by sheepdogs, chickens, ducks, sheep and a tabby cat called Bruiser.

Nicki said: "We have done weekends and month-long stints, and looked after pets from a budgie to an adorable pair of rescue donkeys, but mostly dogs and cats.

"With constant attractive profiles coming online, housesitting can become addictive.

"I still get a buzz, when we land a free stay in an incredible place."
