Hi Kate, Our girl is finally here! And we couldn’t be more thankful to you and your team for a seamless transfer. Here is a picture of Kiera with her Dad at the customs collection point in Edmonton airport. We are more than happy for you to share this on your social platform.

Skylar & Odin
Brisbane to Christchurch, New Zealand
Skylar and Odin has a fantastic experience with Jetpets. They were completely exhausted when they arrived at their grand dads in NZ. Thank you for taking the stress out of their relocation from me. They were so excited that they jumped straight into the back of the jetpets van.

Patch and Waffle
Brisbane to Berlin, Germany
Hi Justin, Thank you so much for all the care and attention JetPets showed to Patch and Waffle on their journey. We were so relieved to pick them up safe in Berlin. The updates during their travels was great, and are so grateful that they got here just fine. Thanks again for everything. Best wishes, Rachel
Adelaide to Damman, Saudi Arabia
I would highly recommend Jetpets to anyone and everyone who’s looking into relocating their fur babies. We used the amazing Jetpets service to help get my fur baby Whitey to Bahrain. We had tried contact with a lot of other animal transport services and we received crazy high quotes. Biljana and Aleesha assisted us with all queries until we settled and put deposit. They’re are phenomenal, every query I had, was answered immediately. I’m one of those paranoid fur mother who was losing sleep prior to Whitey being relocated from Adelaide to Bahrain (almost 17hrs flight). But they made the entire process much more endurable for all of us, I was always kept in the loop. My little fur baby was well looked after and honestly took the process a million times better than I thought. Whitey is sending her fur-isses to Biljana, Aleesha, and her pet handler. She is settling in beautifully. We are very grateful to the entire JetPets team for being with us through this. Your contact and support was extremely professional and prompt. We will be using jetpets again as it was so easy and not stressful at all Thankyou team Jetpets!
Parker and Nova
Sydney to San Francisco, United States
Hi Kaye They're settling in to their new home and I've attached a couple of photos for you of them looking very relaxed in bed and one of Parker surveying her new kingdom.   Thank you to the whole Jetpets team for all of the help and support over the last few months. You took the stress out of the experience for us and I really appreciate everything the team did. All of our questions and concerns were addressed so quickly and I don't think we could have gotten through it without Jetpets!   Thank you again for getting our beautiful little ones over here safely with us.   Kind regards   Tenielle
Melbourne to , Hong Kong
I would highly recommend Jetpets to anyone and everyone who’s looking into relocating their fur babies. I’m one of those paranoid dog parent who was losing sleep months prior to Biscuit being relocated from Melbourne to Hongkong. But they made the entire process much more endurable for all of us. Extremely professional and prompt. Ready to answer and attend to all queries and requests even beyond their scope of work. A special shout out to Biljana, Aleesha and all the pet handlers for taking such great care of Biscuit during the entire process. We are very greatful to the entire team for being with us through this and I’m sure Biscuit who’s now back with us all safe and sound would wag his tail to it! Thanks again for all the efforts and the great work!
Frankie and Minnie
Armidale to Auckland, New Zealand
Justin was AMAZING!!! He made magic happen from two opposite ends of the country to bring our two babies together to fly over to us here in NZ. Minnie and Frankie's travel was co-ordinated so smoothly considering they had to be jointly co-ordinated together but so far apart to make the same flight! This was an amazing experience and we have Justin and JetPets to thank for that! Thank you also to Tineshea-Lee from JetPets NZ who allowed Minnie and Frank to stay overnight at headquarters as their flight was in too late for me to pick them up 🙂 Amazing Amazing Amazing!! Will always be requesting Justin for future needs.
Brisbane to Chicago, United States
Hi Justin, Thought I would touch base to let you know Zoe has settled in well!  Attached are a couple of pics of her - she couldn’t be happier.  Thanks so much for all your help with her move - you really made it easy! Kind regards, Amanda

FAQs – International Pet Transport

Q: How much does it cost to ship a pet internationally?

There are many factors that go into international 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 overseas travel requirements.

Q: How do you transport pets overseas?

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 international pet transport, including making sure that your pet travel crate is airline-approved and organising all the required vet health checks prior to their departure.

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: Should I sedate my dog when flying?

Sedating your pet can be harmful to them during the flight. It can lower their blood pressure and cause dehydration.
Our resident vets recommend Adaptil collars for dogs as an alternative way to make pets feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during travel. A Jetpets pet travel consultant can arrange this for you.

Q: How do I keep my dog calm on a plane?

We recommend putting a blanket or soft toy into your pet’s travel crate to help comfort your pet, but please be aware that if your pet messes their travel crate this will be removed.

In the lead up to their travel, you can also help them associate the crate with positive things such as play and treats by going through the travel crate familiarisation steps.
