It depends on the length of the journey. If you’re transporting a pet via air carrier, it’s advised that you don’t feed them for up to four hours before they fly – but it’s very important to ensure their cage includes water bowls with plenty of water to keep them hydrated during the flight.
The requirements vary depending on where you’re moving to. Always check your pet insurance policy, as it may require your pet to have routine vaccinations. For international pet relocation, check with the relevant authorities. Our specialist vets can provide you with information regarding the vaccination requirements that apply to your pet relocation, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you’re unsure.
Your pet will travel in the live animal cargo, part of the cargo hold. The hold is pressurised in much the same way as the passenger cabin is, with air conditioning and heating to ensure the correct temperature. Generally, most cargo holds are dimly lit to encourage your pet to rest, and they’ll be comfortable and secure throughout their journey.
