    I’ve never traveled with a pet (and never plan to), but it sounds like traveling with a small child. You need to bring things to keep them occupied, extra snacks, and take them to the bathroom before taking off. I never considered taking earlier flights so the temperature would be less extreme, but that totally makes sense!

    This is the cutest post! Too bad I don’t have a pet otherwise I’d do all of the above. I do have a child though and I can see a lot of the points are just as prevalent and important. What a wonderful companion they must be. Some of the photos are super cute!

      Thank you for your comment, Amy! I haven’t traveled with a child (yet) but yeah, I hear a lot of people comparing the two 🙂

    OMG your photos were so good. This is an excellent article with great tips. I honestly did not know that pets with ‘pushed in faces’ could have issues. There are a great set of questions to ask the airlines for pet travel. Thanks for sharing.

    Cute photos! Great tips on making sure you plan ahead for a great trip with your pet. There are so many questions to ask the airline. More and more hotels accept pets too, so no need to hide them.

    I love pets! I am a pet owner myself and travel with my dog about once a year. It’s not easy, but having her with me is very rewarding. However, for me the only acceptable way to travel with a dog is by car. The airlines are very restrictive when it comes to traveling with pets.

      Thank you, Anda. I absolutely agree, taking the car is the best option for pets but there are more airlines nowadays that allow pets on the flight. Hopefully, their number increases even more in the future.

    I don’t have a pet, but this is such a comprehensive list for those who want to travel with their pets! I don’t know that I’d have the heart to check my pet into the airplane pet carriage, just because of all the horror stories I’ve read about pets not making it through flights, but it would be so much fun to take my (hypothetical) pet on a road trip or boat trip!

    I heard that traveling with pets are also a struggle especially on looking for accommodations that allows pets. Some says it’s harder than bringing a baby! But then, your tips are very helpful and depends on how travel style we have prefer.

    I am also a furmom so I can totally relate with your post. It’s either my pet comes with us or no vacation at all. He’s 13 but we have never left him at home. Thank you for these tips. Saving your post for future reference.

    Such a cute post. I never had a pet to travel with but an NGO where I worked has a lot of dogs and they used to come with me when I planned my hiking trip. Traveling is fun with them.

    I don’t have a pet so didn’t realise how much had to be thought about to take them with you away!

    This post is inspiring me to want to travel with my pup Melvin. I’ve always wanted to take him along with me, but it just makes me so nervous. I don’t mind bringing him along on road trips, but the plane rides really scare me. Hoping to take the leap soon though, so I appreciate your tips.

    This is great. My husband keeps aquarium in our house but I am not really that done of pets. But if I were, I would adopt a doggy and would love to take him/her around. This is such a great guide for the pet owners and travelers.

    This made me remember my pet named, Jaunti who is very smart and adorable. I have always dreamt of bringing him with me whenever i travel, but I always didn’t able to make it. Thank you so much for sharing these tips with us, which is truly a big help for someone like me who’s always planning to travel with a pet, but don’t know what to do.

    Thanks for your tips. Travelling with pets is like travelling with kids. Do they have separate compartment inside the airline or they can sit next to the owner?

      Indeed it is, Blaire! Well, that depends on the airline. That’s why one should be very careful when booking with different airlines.
