The 2020 Guide to Travelling with Pets

The 2020 Guide to Travelling with Pets

We've teamed up with Compare Travel Insurance to bring you the ultimate guide to travelling with your pets this year.

Holiday planning can be tricky, but with pets your to-do list may become much longer. If you do decide to take your furry friend away with you, you'll need to come up with a pet-friendly destination and arrange accordingly.


There are strict rules around the transportation of animals by air. Airlines and transport providers along with animal welfare agencies and veterinary practitioners have created guidelines to ensure your pet travels safely and comfortably. 

Many airlines do not allow breeds like the Brazilian Fila, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, American Pit Bull, American Staffordshire Terrier and Pit Bull Terrier.

Young Animals:
Cats and dogs under eight weeks old are usually not allowed to travel.

Other Animals:
Any animal other than a dog or cat (such as snakes, rabbits or rodents) will not be permitted onboard or in the hold.

Pregnant Animals:
No carriage for pets that have given birth in the last 48 hours before the flight.

Large or small cages:
Cages within the hold will have weight and height restrictions e.g. Singapore airlines have a max cage height of 0.56m on flights operated by the A330.

Pets travelling separately:
Pets may not be allowed to travel as freight in the hold if you are not on-board the same flight.
