Pet Peeve: Airfares for Pets Increase

In the new Travel with Pets forum, FlyerTalk member obscure2k posted a link to a news article which discusses the increase in airfares for transporting pets.

However, there is apparently a bright side to the airfare increases to transport pets: FlyerTalk member RSSrsvp says here: “Kudos to the airlines that are giving extra miles/points/free pet travel bonuses to people traveling with their pets. If they are going to charge such a high tariff we should at the very least receive something in return.”

For additional information, including just how much it might cost to transport Fido and Whiskers and when these airfare increases are scheduled to take effect, please refer to the Airlines Hike Pet Fares thread.

    For those who can’t leave your pets behind here are some travel tips so visit your local pet supplies store:

    • Make sure your pet’s shots are up-to-date.
    • Do not administer any medication or treatments without first discussing them with your veterinarian.
    • Obtain documentation from your vet to show that your pet’s vaccinations are current, and that your companion is healthy.
    • If you are traveling to another country, check with that nation’s embassy.
    • Make sure your pets are wearing collars with current Identification tags.
    • Pack any medications your pet may be taking.
    • If you are traveling by automobile, think about the animal’s safety as well as your own.
    • Do not leave an animal unattended in a vehicle.
    • Check with the Airline Carrier for specific requirements when traveling with your pet.
    • Try to book a direct flight to your destination to eliminate additional stress by airline transfers.
    • Call your hotel/motel ahead to confirm that pets are accepted and if any additional fees are required.
