Rates are based on length of appointment and the total number of minors (under age 18) present. There is a four hour billing minimum for each appointment, and that minimum extends to six hours for ski season daytime appointments.
The client is responsible for any additional expenses, such as fee activities for the children and sitter, children’s meals and sitter parking. Please provide your sitter with adequate funds to cover activities and meals. Sitters must be able to park at or reasonably close to the appointment location. Please discuss parking options with your sitter in advance. Many properties will allow a sitter to park on-site at no charge, if requested by the guest.
In all locations, rates increase 50% on July 4, Thanksgiving, December 24, December 25, December 31 before 5:00pm, and January 1. Rates double starting at 5:00pm on December 31 and continuing to the end of the appointment. Advance bookings are strongly recommended for all holiday appointments.
Please see Our Policies for a detailed explanation of cancellation policies and fees.
Your appointment is confirmed when the reservation fee is charged to your credit card through a secure QuickBooks invoice emailed directly to you. The invoice will accept all major credit cards and bank transfers. You then pay your sitter the hourly rate in cash or U.S. check.
Unlike many services, Resort Sitters does not charge membership or subscription fees. You pay a non-refundable reservation fee when the appointment is confirmed and pay the sitter an hourly fee at the end of the appointment. There are no additional charges, taxes or fees. If you are considering other child care options, be sure to compare total costs.
