Advice on taking pets with you on holiday

For many people their family isn’t complete without their pet, so it makes sense that their holiday would also feel incomplete without them. Thanks to pet passports, taking your animal with you on a family holiday is now much easier.

It’s not a decision that should be taken lightly though - a hot beach break might not be the best destination for your furry friend. It’s important to consider the requirements of your pet and whether the holiday you’re wanting would suit them too.

To prevent the spread of diseases, pets have previously been required to enter quarantine after a holiday abroad; but recently the rules have changed. Now to take your animal away on holiday they need to be micro-chipped, vaccinated against specific diseases and also have a pet passport.

All of these things can be completed through your vet, who will give you certificates that need to be shown during your travel. Don’t leave it too late, as there are time restrictions regarding the vaccinations and you don’t want your pet to miss out on their well-deserved break.

Just like you, your pet needs to be insured for the trip overseas, so make sure everyone is covered before you step on the plane. As with normal holiday insurance, shop around and do your research online to find the best option for you.

Travelling is not always fun for everyone, and pets can suffer from sickness just like any family member. To prepare them for their trip abroad, make sure they’re fit and healthy before they fly or sail. It's essential that you remember the needs of the animal, and seriously considered whether they'd be better off staying at home under the supervision of a friend or family member.

When it comes to flying, people opt for comfy clothes to help make the journey smoother, and your pet is no different. Obviously there's no need to dress them up, but comfort is key. Their travel container should be roomy and safe, and it’s a must that you test out your animal inside the container before jetting off on your overseas holiday. Including a familiar blanket in the container will help your pet settle.

Whilst away with your pet, remember to keep an extra eye on them to check they are adapting well to the new surroundings. Cheap winter sun may be ideal for your family to relax and soak up some rays, but you don’t want it to end in disaster with your pet falling ill.
