Tips For Traveling With Pets

So you want to go on vacation with your furry friend(s) but not sure where to go, what the airline rules are and so forth?  Don't worry.  We have put together a little guide on the best ways to travel with pets.
1.  Find a location that is pet friendly.  There are some great cities across the world that allow pets in public areas, restaurants and even in shopping areas.  On the other hand, some cities frown against bring Fluffy out for dinner or to the park.  Some great pet friendly cities are: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, London, Paris, and Rome to name a few.  Also, if you plan to be a beach bum on vacation and want your furry friend with you, be sure to check the local beach rules as some do not allow pets on the beach.

2.  Find transportation that allows pets.  Most airlines allow pets to ride on the plane as long as they fit underneath the seat in front of you.  However space is limited for pets so be sure to make arrangements ahead of time.  Larger pets may be required to ride in the cargo underneath the plane, and in some cases even small pets may have to.  The fees for the pets range from airline to airline so be sure to check the cost before booking your own tickets.

3.  Find lodging that is pet friendly. While many hotels are starting to add pet friendly accommodations, we think it's a great idea to book a pet friendly vacation rental.  Vacation rentals offer more space for you and your four legged friend to sprawl out.  So there is a less likely chance of receiving a phone call that your pet has been barking all day.  Just like humans, pets like to feel like they are at home when they are away. 

Here are just a few of our most popular pet friendly vacation rentals:
