Remember our tips for taking your pet on holidays… be courteous to your hosts and clean up after your pet promptly. Don’t let your pet sit on any of the furniture or bedding. Pack your lint rollers and remove your pet’s fur off any fabric surfaces. Bring your pet’s food and water bowl plus plenty of toys to ensure your animal feels at home. Always be sure to ask exactly what pets allowed means before booking in the accommodation.
