3 Luxury Travel Tips for Pet Owners, Pittsford, New York

No luxury travel experience is complete without someone to share it with, and in some cases, that special individual may be your pet. If you’re a proud owner of a cat or dog, you know just how much fun it can be to travel with a furry companion. That’s why all of us at Pittsford, NY’s Town & Country Travel want to ensure your pets make it to your final destination in safety and style. Here’s what you need to know before you go.

3 Pointers for Luxury Travel With Pets

1. Proper Tags

Before you speak to a travel agent, check that your furry friend has been microchipped. This form of electronic identification is inserted beneath the skin, so veterinarians and animal control officials will be able to find out where your pet is from and return them safe and sound. As a second line of defense, have a collar and tag engraved with your address, name, and phone number. You may even want to make a temporary tag featuring your vacation travel location and hotel number.

2. Airline Information 

luxury travelOnce you’ve decided on an airline, research their regulations regarding pets. While you may want to choose a direct flight to make the trip as easy on your cat or dog as possible, other matters will be out of your hands. The airline will likely have a standard procedure for animals, such as a specific crate size and type. Secure the right container and find out whether your pet can ride in the cabin with you.

3. Vet Checkup

Several weeks before your trip, visit the veterinarian. Tell them where you are traveling, as there may be certain immunizations your pet needs to visit other countries or states. Make sure your companion has had their rabies shots, and request any necessary documentation. 

4. Travel Kit

Finally, pack a custom vacation travel kit for your companion. If you have a dog, bring plastic bags for waste cleanup, treats, grooming supplies, a bowl, and a leash. If you have a cat, you may want to bring litter, a waste scoop, first-aid supplies, food, and any medications they may need. Also, bring any toys, blankets, or pillows your pet loves to remind them of the familiarity of home in a strange place.


With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to enjoying the trip with your furry friend in tow. Allow all of us at Town & Country Travel to secure the rest of the essential details so your vacation is relaxing, not exhausting.
