Is your furry family member travelling?

There’s many benefits in using a pet travel service.

Travelling within Australia or overseas? Need flights booked for your pet? Require a door to door service? Regardless of the travel scenario there’s countless benefits in using a pet travel service, rather than attempt to organise it yourself. Here’s just some of the benefits in having the Jetpets team arrange and look after your pet throughout their entire travel journey.

  1. Place your pet in the care of pet lovers.

We know that you are trusting us to care for your much loved, precious family member. Our pet loving team includes pet travel consultants, resident vets and pet handlers, and we are specialists when it comes to pet travel.

We will take the time to get to know your pet and find out if they have any special requirements.

  1. Pet welfare, comfort and safety comes first

Everything we do centres around the welfare, comfort and safety of your pet.

Our resident vets are located at transit lounge locations throughout Australia. For overseas travellers our vets can complete the entire vet work schedule and ensure strict country of entry requirements are met.

Your pet travel consultant will create your pet’s travel itinerary and provide valuable tips to get your pet ready for travel, as well as stepping your through the entire process.

Our transit lounges are conveniently located near major airports in Australia and provide a relaxing and comfortable environment for your pet prior to their flight.

Our team provides great advice on the best sized travel crate for your pet. You can hire or purchase an airline compliant travel crate from Jetpets. For travel within Australia you can visit a transit lounge for guidance on the best sized travel crate, or for overseas travellers a pet handler can deliver one to your home well before travel. Our pet handlers provide great advice on getting your pet familiar with their travel crate.

For door to door services our pet handlers will transport your pet in comfort in our air-conditioned fleet.

For indirect flights we offer a comfort stop service, ensuring that your pet is taken care of every step of the way.

We are there if things don’t quite go to plan. Sometimes a flight does get delayed or cancelled, or a pet may soil their travel crate prior to flight. You needn’t be concerned as a pet handler will attend to it. They will also be there to top up their water container.

We have a strict weather policy to ensure all pets travel comfortably and safely. We have a dedicated pet travel consultant who proactively monitors the forecast and in instances of extreme weather will change the flight time if necessary.

  1. We select the best flight options

Wanting to travel on the same flight? We will do our best to accommodate this.

We have visibility of pet cabin space availability across our airline partners and will suggest the most direct flight option for your pet.

We monitor the weather and if your pet is travelling from or to a hot climate we will recommend a morning or night flight.

  1. Peace of mind

You can have complete peace of mind knowing that your pet is in good hands with Jetpets, and we are accessible 24/7.

  1. Value for money

With the level of expertise provided and care taken Jetpets represents exceptional value for money. There are also many complimentary aspects of our service that provide convenience to you and benefit your pet.

For interstate pet travel you can enjoy the convenience of our complimentary transit lounge to airport pick up and delivery service.

Terms and conditions apply.

For overseas travel our complimentary services include:

  • The convenience of our “front door” pickup by our trained pet handlers.
  • Pet handler home visit to assist in choosing the correct crate size for your pet, and leave it with you for pet familiarisation.
  • Our stay dry fleece mat provides an absorbent padded surface to keep your pet dry and comfortable in their travel crate.
  • Jetpets resident vets can complete a home visit and health check.
  • One-night boarding stay prior to travel.

Terms and conditions apply.

A trip to the movies for Valentine’s is a great idea, whether you’re on a first date, with your best friends or your family. Luckily, most outdoor cinemas welcome pets too!

Fancy food

Valentine’s Day is all about indulgence, so make sure your pets feel special too. Freeze a couple of raspberries in water for the perfect treat on a warm summers day! Or, head to your local pet store and pick up some gourmet goodies for your furry friend as an extra special treat!

Make sure you don’t leave any chocolate within your pets reach, and make sure you keep all balloons and other dangerous toys well out of their way too, so you can both enjoy the day of love!

Beaches

Of course, there are almost too many beautiful beaches along the Great Ocean Road to count! Here are a few of our favourite off the lead dog beaches.

Logans Beach located in Warrnambool is a must see if you’re interested in whale watching! Dogs are welcome at Logans Beach off the lead all year long, so if you’re travelling down the Great Ocean Road with your dog then it’s a great place to stop and stretch the legs.

If you’re stopping by Peterborough, then make sure to visit Bay of Islands Costal Park. It’s off lead all year round! Just make sure you have control of your dog at all times.

Take a 40 minute drive down the Great Ocean Road from the Twelve Apostles, and you’ll arrive in Johanna. Johanna Beach welcomes dogs off the lead at anytime, so make sure you bring the SPF and a frisbee!

Cafes

There’s no doubt that Victoria is full of great coffee and great cafes. The Great Ocean road is no exception. If you’re making the treck down the Great Ocean Road, then here are a few local café’s to stop off with your pup.

Swing Bridge Café, 30 Great Ocean Road, Lorne

This seaside beach shack is a great place to stop of for a morning brew with your pup. Grab some St. Ali coffee and enjoy the surroundings with mans-best-friend.

Sticks and Stones, 61 Surfcoast Hwy, Torquay

If you’re looking for a gluten-free-friendly café then make sure to check out Sticks and Stones in the heart of Torquay.

Café Moby, 41 The Esplanade, Torquay

This modern Australian café is a hot spot for dog lovers. Pop in for a coffee after your morning beach walk, and enjoy the view!

Walking trails

If you’re stopping off in Princetown Township, then head to the Serpentine Boardwalk on Old Coach Road East. Dogs are permitted all year round as long as they are on a leash.

The Camperdown to Timboon rail train stretches for 34 kilometers and is located inland off the Great Ocean Road. Whether you’re looking for a hike, or a short stroll, the rail trail is sure to appeal to man and dog!

Rosie recently travelled with us from Sydney to the Big Apple – New York! (And yes, we may be just a little bit jealous!) Rosie’s owner Heiko sent us this adorable photo of Rosie in her new home, and some great feedback:

“Hi Danielle,

Just a quick note to say that we all arrived well and safe in New York. We were able to pick up Rosie from Lufthansa Cargo at JFK and it was all straightforward. She was so happy to see us, but we may have been even happier to see her. I even got a call from Pet Express Animal Transport to make sure everything was in order.

Rosie is settling in okay in New York – it’s very cold at the moment so she’s still getting used to that I think. Attached is a picture of Rosie in her new winter outfit. Thanks again for all your help, Heiko”
