Pet travel update


With the UK having left the EU at the end of January, you may be worried about taking your pet abroad. The good news is that nothing has changed, at least yet! Your holidays to the EU will be unaffected while the country is still in the 'transition period', which runs until at least the end of December 2020 (it may get extended).

It's only if Britain has no deal at the end of the transition period that you will need to start thinking about your travel plans. In that situation you may need to take some additional steps to be able to travel with your pet to the EU – we would advise contacting your vet at least four months in advance to check what you need to do – but we’re a long way off that just yet! §
