Simple, stress-free international pet transport
Transporting pets overseas isn’t an easy task. There’s lots of pre-planning to be done, including pre-travel health checks, blood tests, vaccinations, and other essential procedures. You also need to meet various import rules, regulations, quarantine requirements, and airline protocols when flying pets overseas.
As part of our international animal transport services, your personal pet travel consultant will streamline this process for you. We select the most direct route for travel and organise pick-ups and drop-offs, flight booking, veterinary services, and quarantine clearances.

What vaccinations are required for international pet travel?

Are there any restrictions on pet breeds for travel?
Some airlines and countries may have restrictions on international dog transport in regard to specific dog breeds, especially brachycephalic breeds (i.e. pugs and French bulldogs). It’s essential you check with us regarding any breed restrictions before planning your pet’s journey so that we can try to organise a service that suits you and your pet.
What if my pet requires medication during travel?
If your pet requires medication during the journey, please let us know beforehand. Our experienced team will ensure that your pet’s medication is administered as per your veterinarian’s instructions. It’s essential to pack an adequate supply of medication and provide clear instructions for dosing when flying pets overseas.
Is it safe for my pet to fly as cargo?
Your pet’s cabin is thoughtfully designed with a cosy ambience, featuring dim lighting and a comfortable temperature of approximately 18C to ensure their well-being throughout the journey. Your pet’s welfare isn’t just our top priority, but the aircraft crew’s too – pets are actually treated as priority passengers on planes. Their experience as cargo closely mirrors our experiences in the passenger cabin.
Can I accompany my pet during their journey?
While passengers are not allowed in the cargo or designated pet area of the aircraft, some airlines permit small pets to travel in-cabin with their owners. This option is subject to specific size and weight restrictions, as well as the airline’s policy. We can help find out if in-cabin travel is possible for your pet.
Where do you offer international pet transport services?
We offer pet transport services to all major international destinations from any major city in Australia. Get in touch with us to discuss your travel plan so we can organise the best course of action for you and your furry family member to take.
What happens if my flight is delayed or changed?
In the event of flight delays or changes, our team is prepared to adjust and ensure your pet’s well-being throughout the journey. We closely monitor flight schedules and communicate with airline staff to provide the best care and attention to your pet, even in unforeseen circumstances.
