According to a recent survey, pet travelers mostly stay with friends or relatives but the services of pet friendly hotels or motels is not too far behind in demand. The AAA (Automobile Association of America) can even provide guides for pet-friendly hotels and motels to stay.

If you are going away for longer than just a short trip, then you’ll need food and also water dishes and spill proof containers as well. Litter boxes can also be coped with by using disposables, as long as one uses your cat’s normal litter. A basic pet kit for first aid is also recommended, and travelling will also be easier if you know about some pet friendly hotels or have them on a tablet or smartphone for easy reference.

In addition, many hotels will want you to specify the animal’s weight, size, type, and other additional things, so make sure you review all the rules and also ask questions before you arrival. You can also research pet friendly hotels, because most establishments will readily publish all their information on the official travel websites.

Costa Rica is a good example here of a popular destination ideally suited for traveling pet owners. Going through customs control with your pet can be a little more daunting than you may think though. If you are a fan of exciting gambling and a good night life, then San Jose can be the place for your next trip. There are many pet friendly motels and hotels in the city.

The travel industry is constantly changing the regulations and accommodations so as to attract more families that travel with pets. Companion and family animals often take day trips, as well as weekend excursions. And family vacations now comprise a large and growing segment of the worldwide travel industry.

There are of course two types of pet hotels in most countries around the world. The firat kind is a pet hotel that you can book your pet into if you are going away on a trip and you do not intend taking your pet with you. These are much better facilities than the usual kennels or catteries that we are all used to. Pets are pampered here and very well looked after. They have theirr own “bedrooms” with their own beds, lots of toys, plenty of food and are very well cared for. Regular playtime and interaction with other pets is also catered for.

The second type of pet hotel is the kind you can book yourself and your pet into when you intend taking your furry friend on a trip with you. They are regular hotels you can check into with the exception that they will allow your pet to stay in the hotel room with you so you can take good care of your best friend and enjoy your travels together.
