How Our International Pet Transport Services Work?


What to expect when your Pet Travels to Europe

Our highly qualified Team of experts work in collaboration to ensure that your pet’s comfort, safety and welfare is our top priority.  Here are just a few services you can expect directly from our team members.

Pet Travel Consultants just like a travel agent, they will organise your flights to Europe in line with your travel arrangements as best as possible and include a special pet delivery service to your new home.  Our team will require all the important details of your pet including health conditions, microchip details, vaccination history and information to ensure your pet will be comfortable on their overseas adventure.

Pet Handlers can collect your pet from your house, transport them into our transit lounge for a stretch, toilet stop and a drink of water.  Once your pet has been cleared for flying, they will be safely transported to the airport and checked in for their flight.  Depending on your itinerary, our Pet Handlers will provide a pet travel update prior to your pet being checked in on the aircraft when travelling through one of our Transit Lounges.

In-House Vets are available to provide the export veterinary work and quarantine requirements for entering the Europe and ensure your pet is in the ideal condition before they embark on their long flight ahead.

Connecting Flights & The Luxury of a Comfort Stop for Your Pet

Comfort stops are designed to give your pet a short break whilst they are in transit on route to their final destination. At Jetpets, we have dedicated and trusted partners around the world that cater for your pets comfort stop on our behalf.  All of our overseas partners are equipped with boarding/accommodation facilities to house your pet on their short or long term comfort stop depending on your final destination.  For more information please chat with our Jetpets Pet Travel Consultant.

What Happens At The Airport?

  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more leg room than us!)Behind the Scenes at the Airport

FAQs – International Pet Transport to Europe

Q: Can I Move My Dog To Europe?

Yes, you can, you just need to follow a few important rules. Your pet will need to be microchipped, hold a pet passport or third-country official veterinary certificate, have a valid vaccination against rabies and other requirements, depending on where your pet will be travelling from. You must also fly within five days of your pet for the move to be considered “non-commercial”. Jetpets can provide you with all the advice you need for your pet to travel to Europe, including ensuring that all documents, vetwork and treatments are accurately completed, making for an easy and stress-free experience.

Q: How Do You Transport Pets Overseas To Europe?

Jetpets transports pets by air, with trusted airline partners. We help you to organise an itinerary with the most direct flights possible, to ensure your pet’s safety, comfort and welfare throughout the journey.

Q: How Much Does It Cost To Fly A Dog To Europe?

There are many factors that go into pet transport prices, including flight routes and destinations, size and weight of your pet, level of service provided and more. 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.

This includes organising comfort stops for your pet along their journey and collecting your pet from the airport should there be 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 to Europe.

Q: Do Dogs Require Passports In Europe?

You don’t need a pet passport for your pet to travel from Australia to Europe but you can obtain the passport once you’ve reached your EU destination, if you plan on travelling between countries in the European Union.  The application process is simple, as you will already have all of the documentation used to imported your pet to Europe to begin with. An EU Pet Passport contains all of your pet’s relevant history and vetwork documentation, such as vaccinations and microchip number, in a single location.
