Stamford, CT (PRWEB) December 31, 2005
The joyful yet exhausting holiday season has come to a close. In celebration of the New Year, some folks will try to turn over a new leaf by promising to stick to their New Year’s Resolutions, some will desperately try to get back into their ordinary, pre-holiday routines, and others will plan a vacation for a much needed recharge.
For those who yearn for the hot sun and sandy beaches, sightseeing in the Mediterranean, or snow skiing in the Alps, AP9 TodaysEscapes, a travel and entertainment discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, offers members exceptional deals on all of their travel needs - - no matter where. But, what about your best friend -- your pet? Not a strange question at all. Thousands of pet-loving travelers pack up their pets to take with them on vacation every year.
If you can’t bear the thought of having to leave your pet behind while you race off to explore new ground and take that much needed rest, AP9 TodaysEscapes offers some simple tips on how to make sure you and your pet have a happy and safe traveling experience.
-- Pay the vet a visit. Make sure that your pet is up to date on their vaccines. Your beloved four-legged friend will be around a lot of strangers during your travels so it is best to make certain everything is current. You may also want to get a few names of veterinary clinics that are located in the area where you will be vacationing.
-- Update pet ID tags and snap a picture. Just in case your furry or feathered friend gets lost on their own adventure while on vacation, you need to have an ID tag and a collar on them at all times. Take a recent picture of your pet with you so you can show it around if you do become separated from your pet. In addition, if you are traveling by plane, be sure to include the name, address, and phone number of the place where you will be staying right on the pet carrier -- if they are lost between flights, the airline will know where to contact you.
-- Avoid flying in extreme weather conditions. A 100 degree day is fine if you are sitting in an air conditioned cabin, but to your pet, the flight may be potentially dangerous. Try booking flights in the early morning or late in the evening on high temperature days to ensure your pet is comfortable.
-- Booking accommodations. During your vacation planning, you need to ask the hotel if they will accept pets. And before departing, you may want to reconfirm. It you are staying with family or friends, it is a good idea to let them know that you are bringing your friend in advance. Someone just may be allergic to animals and better to find out before you leave then when you arrive. And on a considerate note - - pick up after your pet!
