Please post your review also on Trustpilot. Unfortunately we had a very bad experience with our one and only sit. We wanted to try it as we are infrequent users and thought it might work for us. Unfortunately the sitter after being uncontactable cancelled 10 mins into the job rendering it impossible for my husband and I to have a long awaited night out. The team tried to remedy it, however, with less than zero notice it was impossible. We'll return to the very reliable service of Sitters.

I have been using this app for 3 weeks and had 3 cancellations so far, out of 8. Why do parents need to pay if cancelling but sitter can just cancel without any fee? They can just cancel an hour before coz they might not feel like working but parents are forced to cancel their plans. Why not add a fee for them to pay TOO? I bet they won't be cancelling because the weather is nice and feel like can't be bothered with this!

Hi Andreea, I'm sorry to hear about this experience. I've had a quick look at your account and I can't see any sitter cancellations from our side, was this under a different account? I've dropped you an email (support@joinbubble.com) as we take cancellations very seriously our general policy is to deactivate sitters who cancel at short notice.

Great service, every sitter I have booked has been very capable & very lovely, and the app is great for parents as it gives you the option to choose who you want to offer a particular booking to. I did have problems with an earlier version of the app, which Bubble worked hard to solve, but in the end it was only solved by getting a new phone. It's not possible to log in to your account using a browser so I'd recommend having a fairly up to date phone. Excellent service - highly recommend it!

Hey Sarah, thanks for the feedback and we're working hard to fix the issues you mention. Glad you love the service but we won't be happy till you love the app too. We'll drop you a line separately to update you when the fixes are in place. Thanks so much again.
