Let’s start by stating the obvious… Australia a BIG place and sometimes you don’t want to drive the 10 hours to Melbourne, you want to fly, because it’s quicker, easier and much less stressful! However what about if you have a pet that you want to take with you, how do you do it?
- Strap a pair of wings to their arms?
- Smuggle them onto the plane in your hand luggage?
- Dress them in human clothing and pretend they are your baby (note this is only for small pets :))
Unfortunately you aren’t allowed to do any of the above on planes… unless you have a service animal (e.g. guide dog) they need to go in the hold with the bags. There is one exception – charter a private jet (like Johnny Depp) and you can have them wherever you like! (more…)
