Frequently Asked Questions

Why does this site exist? Is it really that challenging to travel with my pet to the UK?

Bringing your pet into the UK isn't necessarily difficult, but there are specific regulations and procedures you must adhere to. Most airlines require pets to travel as cargo, which can be stressful for both the pet and the owner. However, it's worth noting that assistance dogs are often exempt from this rule and can travel in the cabin with their owners. As for health requirements, all pets must be microchipped and vaccinated against rabies. Depending on the country you're coming from, additional treatments or tests might be needed. This site was created to compile all this dispersed information into an easy-to-follow guide, ensuring pet owners can navigate the journey with confidence.

Do you cover travel information for all pets or just dogs?

Currently, our primary focus is on dogs and cats, but we're looking into expanding our information to cater to other pets as well.

How often is the information updated on your website?

We strive to keep our data as current as possible and typically update our site whenever there are significant changes or new information available.
