Over 54,000 Pets Travel through Eurotunnel in August 2022
Pet travel has hit record-breaking numbers with more than 54,000 pets travel through Eurotunnel in order to travel between Europe and the United Kingdom.
UK Travel Restrictions
As the UK has established very strict import requirements for animals, many travelers look for alternative options to travel with their pets, including using the Eurotunnel. But it's not the easiest to coordinate -- logistically.
Many travelers from the U.S. make extensive plans in order to fly into Paris and then arrange for a professional transporter or someone with a vehicle to travel into the UK. But why make travelers do so much extensive arrangements to travel with their pets?
It all boils down to the pet verification process.
Travel by Air
Many airlines do not wish to manage this process, as it can lead to incorrect clearance -- so instead of providing a solution -- they decide to eliminate travels into the UK altogether. But is there an option available?
There is now!
Pawtrip has launched a pet reservation system (PRS) that allows commercial airlines and across the travel industry. The system confirms the pets are suited to travel, ensure all paperwork and vaccinations have been administered and allow people to have everything necessary for a smooth travels.
This solution can help commercial airlines offer their pet program to customers -- which in this case, could've been a piece of the 54,000 pets that have traveled in August alone! That's a LOT of business being lost.
It's time to provide customers the best traveling experience, and that means across all travel mediums.
