Motel.com Provides Travel Planning for the Budget Conscious Traveler with Pets

Share Article

Thirty-nine percent of U.S. households own at least one dog and an increasing number of those households are traveling with their pet, according to Motel.com’s most recent travel trend analysis. This, combined with the fact that the most widely-used information source to plan leisure trips is the Internet has created a booming market for online searches of pet-friendly hotel and vacation packages, according to the Priceline.com partner.

Pets are beloved family members, and traveling without them is like traveling without a family member—for many, something just seems to be missing. That’s why hotels, rental agencies and cruise lines across the country are catering to this specific demographic of traveler that won’t leave home without everybody in the family on board, including the members with four legs.

In addition to the spike in travelers seeking travel accommodations for both owners and their pets, budget conscious traveling is certainly the trend for the 2012 summer travel season. Sites like Motel.com see the biggest spikes before the rest of the travel industry due to their unequivocal ability to locate cheap hotels and discount vacation packages. Even though travelers are on a budget, the need to travel is still there—almost as a patriotic duty. This is why President Obama reminded the country that travel is a great way to help boost the nation’s still-struggling economy, especially for areas of the country such as coastal areas and top summer travel picks that rely heavily on tourism as their main source of income.

These coastal tourism spots, in particular, are where some of the best travel deals are available, according to Motel.com. Announcing just recently that Orlando, Florida made the top of its list for consumers’ most-picked summer travel destinations, the website has focused deals to these locations for travelers of all types—including travelers who are bringing their pet or pets along for the adventure.
