Multi-family Rate

We permit visiting families to share 1 booking and 1 sitter, if desired. Per our insurance requirements, each family must register as a client.

Payment for Hotel Parking or Valet

Please reimburse your sitter if they use paid parking for safe parking near your hotel. In some cases, valet parking is the only option. In some cases, your hotel may waive the valet fee for your childcare service provider.

Mileage Payment for Transporting Your Child

If your sitter drives your child in their personal vehicle, please reimburse them at 67 cents per mile, the 2024 IRS rate. Your sitter will track this mileage and include it in the total due when your booking is complete.
