Book Direct Flights when Traveling with a Pet

 

Whenever you go traveling, sometimes you just want your pet to come along. This isn't unusual, and it's completely understandable how you would want your favorite buddy to come along for the ride. You don't always drive everywhere though, and sometimes you have to fly with your pet. This can always be an interesting adventure because flying with pets takes a significant amount of extra paperwork and responsibility. When you fly with your pets, one of the things you need to do is book direct flights when flying with a pet in cargo.

The thought of spending an entire flight (regardless of the duration) in a cargo hold is pretty much horrifying to me, and I'm sure it's not too much more thrilling to your pet. Flying in the cargo hold can be frightening enough on its own, and so if you're flying with your pet, you want to make sure that everything is the best it can be. In order to minimize the fear your pet will probably experience at flying in the cargo hold of a plane is to book a direct flight, so the terror is over in one shot. It could really upset your pet to have to fly and stop and be transported and fly and stop again, the whole time being stuck in the cargo hold of a plane.

But actually, the real reason for you to book a direct flight is to make sure that your pet doesn't get lost. It's always good to watch your pet being loaded into the cargo hold, but if you have multiple connections to get to one place, you can't personally make sure that your pet gets loaded onto the right plane every time. Almost all of us know how frustrating it is to lose luggage and then to have to track it down, and can you imagine the increased stress, frustration, and fear you'd experience if your pet was misplaced? By booking direct flights, you only have to worry about making sure that your pet is loaded once, and making sure of that is definitely doable.

So, to reduce the stress felt on your pet and you, just book only direct flights when traveling with your pet. By doing this, you make things much safer, and the cargo experience for your pet shorter. Be a good pet owner and book direct flights for the sake of your pet!
