Babysitters Rates by City

What are Destination Sitters Babysitter Rates by city?

Most families traveling with their children do not want to spend their time on vacation interviewing, checking references and screening potential babysitters. They would rather call our service who does the leg work for them.

Destination Sitters fills the gap with prescreened fully vetted sitters to give parents peace of mind when traveling with their kids. Those families want to enjoy a date night, use the spa or just an extra set of hands in a theme park with their call us for assistance. We consider a lot of factors when determining a good fit for your sitter. The dates, times, how many hours requested, multiple days, hotel’s location, child(ren)’s ages, and more. It also important to set competitive babysitter rates and offer a living wage to attract the most professional childcare providers to sure you get the best of the best.

Factors to consider with babysitting rates:

Number of children: As parents know more children more work, especially with multiple ages.
Long request more than 8+ hours: increase compensation for sitter’s time.
Large Metropolitan cities: Rates are higher due to the cost of living.
Vetted process: we have done the homework for you.

All sitters

  • have provided First Aid & CPR certifications.

Our sitters arrive in Destination Sitters’ polo shirt, photo ID tags and with age-appropriate games, toys, activities and books. They always check in & out with the concierge or front desk.

Additional Expenses:

Your location may have additional fees, such as parking fees which are charged by the hotel and added to your room bill. Some cities have taxi fares instead of being for the sitter’s parking fees which are less expensive than the parking fees.
We try not to charge a travel fee for sitter’s gas and time but if a local sitter is not available during the dates and times request. We will try to find a sitter who is not in the local area who will accept the request. It will be your choice whether to accept the travel fee for her gas and time or be placed on the wait list.
