Exclusive Sedan’s Travel Tips: Traveling with Pets


Traveling with a pet or pets can be challenging, especially considering the overwhelming abundance of new rules. Here are some tips from Exclusive Sedan for traveling with your pet or pets:

First and foremost, make a reservation with a Los Angeles Limo Service such as Exclusive Sedan to ensure a smooth  stress free airport transfer.

You need to make sure that you know the weight, age and kennel size and closure restrictions for the airline you're flying. Make sure to check with your airline regarding specific restrictions before traveling

Carry a file that includes your pet's vaccination records, proof of rabies, and contact info for your vet, a photo of your pet, a list of any meds, and even some references from hotel concierges where you and your pet have stayed before.

Airlines offer a restricted number of cabin spots for pets, and they fill up fast. So make sure to book early.

Try to fly nonstop; the least amount of transfers you have can be less stressful for your pet and helps to avoid any confusion.

For international travelers, each country has its own rules and regulations, regarding animal quarantine periods and required paperwork. Make sure you do your research before traveling.

Airline Fees vary for pets, so you want to make sure you have extra cash or your credit card ready.

To prevent any messy accidents, don't give water or food to your pet in-flight. Use ice cubes and let the animal lick them as needed.

Since food is not allowed inside of actual pet carriers, you can tape a baggie to the outside of the kennel just in case your flight is delayed or if the duration of the flight is longer than 12 hours.

Do not feed your pet a sedative; most airlines will not take an animal under sedation

If your pet is flying in cargo, ask the conditions it will be transported in from the terminal to the aircraft. Some airlines have air-conditioned or heated transport vehicles.

Make sure to place an article of bedding or a toy inside the kennel with your pet, this has been shown to comfort and reassure pets while separated from their owners.
