Finding Pet Friendly Hotels Along Your Travel Route

February 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

Traveling with your dog, cat or other pet is a bonding and enjoyable experience...as long as you take the time to properly plan your trip. A major part of traveling with your pet is staying at pet friendly hotels & accommodations. People that travel long distances with their pets look for pet friendly accommodations to stay at along their travel route. Finding hotels that allow pets along your route needs to be part of your pre-travel planning so you and your pet are not stuck sleeping in the car!

What You Want to Avoid:

You're traveling down the highway, 7 hours into your road trip. You're getting a little bleary eyed, your driving leg is cramping up and your tail bone is screaming. You're ready to pack it in for the night and check in at a hotel along the highway. You get off at the nearest exit and stop at the closest hotel you can find - sorry, no pets allowed. Back in the car, onto the next hotel - sorry, your pet is too big. Back in the car, onto the next hotel. You're stressed, you're beat...this is the last thing you need... hotel hopping with your pet.

How to Avoid It:

Mapping out pet friendly hotels & accommodations along the way is not as difficult as it may seem. There are online pet friendly travel resources that have search by route features. This nifty little tool allows you to enter your departure location as well as your destination location. Once you input that information, voila!, a map of your travel route is displayed, complete with all the pet friendly hotels along the way! In addition, a list of step by step directions is also displayed. Once you have mapped out the pet friendly accommodations along your travel route, it is recommended that you book a hotel before you hit the road. Determine how many miles you'd like to drive each day. Then check the map to find a hotel that is best suited for you and your pet. This will ensure that when you're ready to rest for the night, you have a place to stay where your pet is welcome. If you're the type that likes to wing it...then you can still use this handy search by route feature. When you're getting ready to stop for the night (that is, BEFORE you're ready), just hop on to your iphone or ipad to find pet friendly accommodations along your travel route.

Have a stress-free road trip with your pet and plan ahead. Finding pet friendly hotels & accommodations along your travel route ahead of time will help to ensure that you and your pet are welcome and happy in your travels.
