How it Works: Interstate Pet Transport
At Jetpets, it’s not just about getting your loved one from point A to B. We take the time to get to know your pet and hear about your travel requirements, including your preferred travel dates and what level of convenience you are after, which may be a complete door-to-door service. We then tailor an itinerary that puts your pet first.
With Jetpets transit lounges located near airports in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, you can rest assured that your pets are given a comfort stop and time to refresh before and/or between flights. Working closely with reputable airlines, we pride ourselves in providing you with a seamless end-to-end service that focusses on reuniting families with their beloved pets or welcoming a new pet into the family.
Behind the Scenes at the Airport
FAQs – Interstate Pet Transport
Q: How much does pet transport cost?
There are many factors that go into interstate pet transport prices, including flight routes and destinations, size and weight of your pet, level of service provided and more. With Jetpets, you can rest assured that our quotes can be made all-inclusive, delivering a boutique experience for you and your pet – no hidden costs or surprises. We follow strict internal and external policies to ensure your pet’s comfort and safety during travel, so our pet transport prices already include full-service provisions such as organising comfort stops for your pet along their journey and collecting your pet from the airport should there by a flight delay or cancellation.
Your Jetpets pet travel consultant will talk you through all the available options, as well as provide you with a customised itinerary and quotation for your pet’s travel within Australia.
Q: How can I transport my dog to another state?
At Jetpets, we work with our trusted airline partners to help you find the most direct flight option for your pet. We will work with you to ensure all airline pet regulations are met for interstate pet transport, including making sure that your pet travel crate is airline-approved and organising any required vet health checks.
Q: Is it safe to fly my pets in cargo?
The pets’ cabin is dimly lit and the temperature is set to approximately 18 degrees for comfort. The captain of the aircraft is also aware that your furbaby is on board their flight. What your pet will experience in the cabin is very similar to what we feel and hear in the passenger cabin.
Q: How do you calm a cat on a plane?
Due to the possible adverse effects of sedation, our resident vets recommend other alternatives such as Feliway for nervous flyers. In the lead up to your cat’s travel date, you can also help prepare your furbaby by going through the travel crate familiarisation steps which will help them be more at ease when it comes time to travel.
