Take your pets along for the ride

For many people animals are very much part of the family and it would be unheard of to leave them behind on holiday. The Petcare Information and Advisory Service (PIAS) agrees that it can be beneficial for both pets and people to enjoy a holiday together – particularly if it is for a longer period. Pets are very much a part of the Australian family, with over 53% of households having a dog and/or a cat. In the past it was common for cats and dogs to be sent to boarding kennels when the family went away on holiday, whereas people are now recognising that pets can adapt well to travel and there are increasing options for people wishing to take their four-legged friend on holiday,” says Susie Chaseling from PIAS. Finding pet-friendly accommodation has never been easier on Vrbo with thousands of holiday homes across Australia and Asia Pacific that accept dogs, cats, and other family pets. Just be sure to clarify with the property owner to work out all the details.
