Pet Travel Scheme
It is amazing that the office of the Costa Animal Society still receives calls every week from people who are returning to the UK, saying they cannot take their pet with them because it is too difficult. Many of them are not aware that the Pet Travel Scheme rules were relaxed last year reducing the waiting time for dogs and cats to enter Britain, as well as cutting the cost of preparing your animal for transport.

The six month waiting period has been reduced from six months down to 21 days from the date your doggie or moggie receives its rabies vaccination, effectively eliminating quarantine kennel bills.

Please consult your vet on how to prepare your pet for travel to the UK and once the micro-chip, rabies, passport and waiting period have been completed you have several options to take your pet to Britain.

The most expensive but quickest way would be to arrange a flight through a certified, pet travel agent. A local pet courier company can provide a more reasonable option but make sure they are DEFRA approved and check references.

Finally, if you are driving back what better companion could you take on your journey?
