Pet travel services

EXPORTS – Relocating pets worldwide
IMPORTS – Bringing your pets to the UK
NATIONAL – UK wide pet relocation


Pets Abroad will organise your pet’s airline booking, just let us know your preferred travel dates and we’ll ensure a booking to suit your needs.


We will organise your pet’s pre-export documentation, ensuring all the relevant legislation is adhered to, making sure your companion arrives safely, and without delay into their new country of residence.


There is always a degree of veterinary work that needs to be undertaken before your pet can travel. Pets Abroad have a veterinary surgeon as part of the team and can attend to your pet’s pre- export needs, including vaccinations, parasite treatments, blood tests and export health certificates. Of course, if you’d prefer this work to be done by your local vet, just let us know and we’ll ensure they have all the relevant information and documents available.

pet crate


Pets Abroad work closely with a local crate maker, once we have your pets measurements these are made to order, ensuring the perfect fit and the upmost comfort and safety on the journey. If you’d like to receive your crate before your travel date so you can introduce your pet to it as a ‘safe place’ we can arrange delivery UK wide. All crates are provided with a water bowl and funnel and special veterinary bedding. The veterinary bedding is absorbent and draws any fluids away from the surface, helping your pet stay clean and dry on the journey.


When it’s time to travel Pets Abroad can collect your pet(s) from any UK address. Our DEFRA approved, climate controlled vehicles and attentive, caring staff mean they travel in comfort and safety at all times. Alternatively, you may drop them off at our premises or directly to the airport, we will meet you there.


Pets Abroad are proudly associated with excellent local kennel and cattery facilities, and can arrange for your pet to be boarded either long or short term depending on your needs.


We will provide you with all of the information you need to ensure your pet’s seamless arrival into your new country of residence. This may include booking potential quarantine facilities, arranging onward domestic travel, booking boarding facilities and providing veterinary advice to ensure your pet is safe and fully protected in their new home.


Pets Abroad want to make sure your pets journey is as stress free as possible. Our veterinary team are available to discuss your pets medical history and any concerns you may have. All of our pet travel crates will be sprayed with a calming pheromone pre-departure, Feliway (for cats) or Adaptil (for dogs) are great stress relievers and will help make your pet feel more secure.
