The Hague – A PostNL study has shown that 9 out of 10 Dutchmen ask people they know to look after their home during their holiday. Especially family and relatives (49%) and neighbours (37%) are asked to empty the letterbox, water the plants or look after the pets. The trust the Dutch have in the guards of their castle appears to be boundless: only 1% believes that their mail is opened or read without their permission. Conversely, home sitters would love to read confidential mail addressed to their family, relatives, neighbours or friends. The study brings to light that 1 out of 5 respondents is curious about this.
