We Need Your Help Please…
To provide you the best and most accurate costs for your pet(s) relocation, we need as much information as possible.
You can expect to encounter a few standard expenses however all moves will differ in price.
Here are some components of a typical pet move:
- The travel crate
- The airfare from your current location to where your pet is going
- Transportation to and from the airport
- Pre-move vet visits – Vary from country to country
- International health documents and import permits
- Government endorsements
- Customs fees
- Quarantine fees
The costs of each of the above items will vary from one move to the next depending on a variety of factors.
- Your Pet’s Size
Your pet’s airline ticket price is essentially based on their size. The larger and taller your pet is, the more space they require in cargo and the more their airfare will cost.
- Origin and Destination
Generally the closer you are to a major airport (for both your origin and destination), the less expensive the trip will be. If driving is required to get you to an airport which supports pet travel or if the trip consists of more than one flight, the overall costs may be higher.
- Import Permits
If you’re moving internationally, your new home country might require obtaining formal permission from the government in the form of an import permit. These permits range in cost depending on where you’re going.
- Airport Check-In
It can often take a few hours to complete the check-in process, which requires the specialized assistance of your agent to take care of your pet during this time and make sure all paperwork is in order.
- Customs Clearance
Additionally when your pet lands, in many cases entry procedures must be negotiated by a customs agent and there may be tariffs, customs fees or taxes to pay at this time.
Because every pet move is different it takes a little time to calculate your specific costs.
Please allow 24-48 hours for your personal Pet Travel Agent to get back to you with an estimate.
