Pets can be a major reason that some people either have a tougher time traveling, or they simply can’t. Finding a dog sitter or someone to watch your cats can be stressful. In most travel instances of the past, finding a hotel to go to with your pet were difficult. Not only is it a hassle corralling your pet up and down an elevator or stairs, there is also seldom a designated space to allow your pet to run free and feel comfortable outside of their traditional home.
Boarding a pet can be even more expensive than your vacation in some instances, making for even more unnecessary vacation stress. Booking a vacation rental can help you have a fun vacation with your pet in tow. Vacation rentals have much more space than hotels and can even provide you and your pet with a backyard to play and relax. Renting a beach home? Walk right out to the beach without having to walk through a hotel with very little space.
Often, being able to bring pets with you to vacation rentals can ease the stress of traveling on both you and your pet. Depending on how you’re traveling, taking a plane or road tripping, the approach of traveling with pets is different.
When traveling by plane, know the regulations for your airport before making the trek. There are often rules and regulations that have to be considered months in advance that can’t be forgotten. Make sure to do your research before attempting to bring your pet on a plane. Each major airline has their own page dedicated to their specific rules for each pet you can bring on board your plane.
For road trips, knowing how to keep your pet calm during an especially long trip is important. All pets need rest and space to relax regardless of how far you may be traveling. We all care about our pets, and bringing them along on a trip can be such a fun way to spend time with them, especially when traveling for a prolonged period.
