Hi Dipkesh,   Hunter arrived safely!!! It was quite a long process with all the paperwork at Dubai Airport, but we finally reunited with Hunter at about 3am Thursday morning! He was a little disorientated at first, but as you can see from the attached photos, bounced back really quickly the next day, and has made himself right at home!   Thank you so much for all your help with managing the process - its pretty special to have our fur baby with us again!   Taleana, Stuart & Hunter

Hi Aleesha,   Kiara has arrived safely in Singapore and she’s adapting quite well especially to the heat so far!

Taylor
Melbourne to London, United Kingdom
Jetpets looked after the move of elderly chocolate Labrador ‘Taylor’ from the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne to Swindon, UK. As he is over 16, we were very concerned about his welfare, but received great advice and support initially from Paige who managed the whole move, and from all of the pet handlers and staff who clearly are great at their work but also love the animals. Jetpets ensured we had the correct vet advice, a journey for Taylor with appropriate rest breaks given his age, and sure enough he arrived safe and very well on schedule. So a big thanks to all of the Jetpets team, we loved the constant updates, the photos of Taylor along the way which kept us updates and gave us real peace of mind. Well done to the whole organisation, and congratulations on delivering such great service.

Roxy
Brisbane to London, United Kingdom
Hi Dipkesh We were so excited to see Roxy today. We have been so happy with everything. From the moment I rang for a quote to the moment of picking her up when landed. She travelled well, enjoyed the updates from your team during travel and has settled nicely. Bit colder here so she has a new jacket and bed which she loves. Thank you for all your amazing effort in making Roxy's travel a pleasant experience and the peace of mind you gave our family through the transition of moving her to our new home overseas. Kind regards Simone

Scarecrow & Mina
Melbourne to Toulouse, France
Hi Justin,   Thank you again so much for everything that you have done for us. Mina and Scarecrow have arrived safely and have settled in well already. Finally, our apartment feels like home 🙂 We wish to convey as much as we can how much your understanding and patience has meant to us. Without your professionalism and care we would not have been able to have been able to get them here and the hole in our hearts would have been too great to give living overseas a crack. You helped us get here and we will never forget what you have done for us.   We hope that you have had an excellent start to the year and wish you every success with whatever your future holds. Alicia and Aidan

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.
