Babysitting & Nanny Service for Hotels
Riverside Cares provides nannies and babysitters for travellers visiting London. We do not charge a registration fee and accept payment by credit card for agency services (payable at time of booking). The nanny or babysitter is paid in cash directly by you at the time of receiving service. Cancellation policy: Once a childcarer has been placed and accepted by the hotel guest the childcarer is due payment for their services. Any subsequent bookings incur an agency fee and payment to the childcarer. Cancellations under 12 hours or over the weekend still incur an agency booking fee. If insufficient time is given to cancel the childcarer (3 hours) or the childcarer cannot be contacted the hotel guest ordering the service is expected to pay the nanny a minimum of 3 hour fee.
