It is time to stop leaving your pet behind! Travelling with your furry friend has become easier every year!

In the car:

  • If you're crossing state lines, bring along your pet's rabies vaccination records just to ensure you have a copy on hand.

On the plane:

  • Different airlines have different rules when it comes to allowing pets in the cabin, so be sure to call ahead of time to find out.

  • Try to buy a carrier that takes up the least amount of space — and definitely don't forget a luggage tag listing all of your information as well as any paperwork required.

  • There is one standout program when it comes to bringing pets on flights: JetBlue's JetPaws offers members 300 points each time they board with their pets with a few additional conditions.

At the hotel:

  • Look for accommodations with pet perks, like Kimpton Hotel locations that accept all pets for zero charge, offer pet toys, beds, water bowls and even Doggy Happy Hours at a few select locations.

  • Some hotels give your pet the chance to stretch his or her legs with dog-walking routes or even on-campus dog runs like the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
