Traveling with your pet does not have to be difficult. Choose a pet carrier to help you transport your furry friend in comfort and convenience. Pet carriers are a great way to help your pet arrive safely at your destination and can also be used for everyday trips. While some pet carriers can be stylish, safety is one of the main things you should have in mind when purchasing a carrier for your pet. There are a variety of carriers to choose from depending on the size of your pet and the distance you are traveling.Your larger pet will probably have to travel in the cargo area of the plane. Hard cover carriers are generally made of a plastic shell that makes them more durable than soft pet carriers. Pet cargo carriers are generally made of this type of material since it helps keep your pet safe and secure for the duration of the flight. Consider placing a soft pad or pillow inside the carrier to help your pet feel more comfortable.Please note: It is always best to call your airline to make sure that traveling with your pet in the carrier is permitted on the airline. Some airlines charge extra fees for traveling with your pet and some have a limit on how many pets can fly in the cabin at one time. This varies on all the different airlines. We recommend checking with the airline at least two weeks in advance for their specific rules and requirements. Some carriers may also be used as a personal bag (for on-the-go pet owners who like to travel in style). These type of pet carriers have dual functionality. Made to transport your small pet and also work as a purse, designer carriers have convenient side or interior pockets to store a wallet or other small items. On some airlines, they can also be used as airline carry-on. Always check your airline's specific requirements. Hard shell pet carriers can be used for airline travel, transporting larger pets to the veterinarian by car, or just visiting family and friends. Some, such as the , also function as crates for housebreaking your pet.Household birds will not be accepted for carriage in the cabin, but may be accepted as checked baggage.
