Is it safe for pets to fly?

Air travel is as safe for pets as it is for people. Airlines have staff that are trained in pet travel and who will care for your beloved pet on their journey. And, of course, we take care of everything to ensure your pet has a happy and safe flight.

Where do pets travel on the plane?

Your pet will travel in a special cargo compartment within the aircraft. This compartment is both climate controlled and pressurised for your pet’s safety and comfort, and it’s on the same air circulation system as the cabin.

Where can I get a strong, comfortable travel crate?

Pet Express can provide strong, sturdy and comfortable travel crates that provide protection during loading and unloading, and give your precious pet plenty of space to stretch out and move around. Our crates will keep your pet secure where some lightweight crates sourced from pet stores may flex during handling, enabling the door to accidentally open.

How much will it cost to relocate my pet?

The price for pet transport can vary substantially depending on the location, so we’ll need to provide you with a specific quote to suit your needs.

Will my pet have to stay in quarantine?

Only a handful of countries actually require your pet to stay in quarantine upon arrival. These are the strict rabies-free countries like Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. If you’re relocating your pet to one of these countries, they may need to spend a few days in quarantine. But in most other countries, there are no quarantine requirements at all.
