Frequently Asked Questions About Our International Pet Travel

Q: How Far In Advanced Should I Book?

6 Months in advance is optimal and suitable for pets looking to travel long distances or to countries that have specific vaccination requirements.  Allowing as much time as possible is beneficial so both you and your pets are organised, ready and prepared.

Q: How Much Does It Cost To Fly A Pet Internationally?

There are several factors to consider with international pet transport prices, including flight routes, destinations, size, weight of your pet, level of service provided and more. All our quotes can be made all-inclusive with no hidden costs or surprises.

Q: How Do You Transport Pets Overseas?

We work with our trusted airline partners to help you find the most direct flight option for your pet. We will work with you to ensure all airline pet regulations are met for international pet transport (e.g making sure that your pet travel crate is airline-approved).

Q: Is It Safe To Fly My Pets In Cargo?

The pets’ cabin is dimly lit and the temperature is set to approximately 18 degrees for comfort. The captain of the aircraft is also aware that your furbaby is on board their flight. What your pet will experience in the cabin is very similar to what we feel and hear in the passenger cabin.

Q: Should I Sedate My Dog When Flying?

Sedating your pet can be harmful to them during the flight. It can lower their blood pressure and cause dehydration. Our resident vets recommend Adaptil collars for dogs as an alternative way to make pets feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during travel. Our pet travel consultant can arrange this for you.

Q: How Do I Keep My Dog Calm On A Plane?

We recommend putting a blanket or soft toy into your pet’s travel crate to help comfort your pet, but please be aware that if your pet messes their travel crate this will be removed. In the lead up to their travel, you can also help them associate the crate with positive things such as play and treats by going through the travel crate familiarisation steps.
