Leaning how to travel with your pet on an airplane is something very important for you to know if you intend to bring you pet on your next vacation. It is possible to book a trip with your pet whether during the holiday season or any time during the year. Here are some ways you can save when booking a trip for you and your pet.
Booking tickets online will give you better and cheaper deals. Make sure that the airline has room for you pet either in the cabin or in the cargo hold for the flight before making your reservations. You can get better prices when youbook online that when you call over the phone with the assistance of a sales agent. So, when you have already made a reservation for yourself, then it is time to also make reservations for your pet over the phone.
The best flight to take when you are traveling with your pet is a flight with no stopovers in other places but goes directly to your destination. You only get a flight with stopovers if there are no available direct flights. Don’t get yourself in the trouble of transferring airlines when travelling. The reason for this is that when you transfer airline, you will need to claim your pet from the former and then check him in again in the other airline. Changing planes is still stressful but a lot better than changing airlines. You can save money by booking a one way direct flight from one airline and a different direct flight from another airline coming back home.
If you are going to a smaller city, choose to fly into a nearby large airport, and then rent a car and drive to your destination. You can save more on this set up and if your pet loves riding in a car, then it will have a great experience travelling to your destination.
Make sure to book early. Early bird tickets are usually lower than the average price at that time.
For domestic flights, there are days where flight will be much more expensive because the bulk of business traffic are during those days.
If you are taking your pet alone, take the either the earliest of the lastest flights available. These provide you with cheaper rates than flight during normal daytime hours. You don’t have to pay extra for vet clearing if you arrive at your destination at normal business hours, so make sure about your arrival time beforehand.
