Holidaying with your pet

Taking your pet abroad can make a holiday complete. As your dog or cat is one of the family it makes sense that a holiday should involve them.

Taking your pet abroad on holiday has been made much easier since the introduction by the government of the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS). There are countries all over the world that you can now take your dog or cat to and share in all that other cultures have to offer.

Although the ability to travel has been made easier, there are still strict rules that must be adhered to so that you can have a stress-free holiday.

This factsheet from Petplan has been produced to help you do just that, easing the journey and making sure you are prepared.

From time to time regulations do change. Always consult DEFRA for the latest information about travelling abroad with your pet.
