Are you planning a family vacation but don't want to leave your pet behind? Animal lovers will know what I mean when I say a family pet is like a member of the family and when you take a family vacation you don't want to leave anyone behind.
Family pets make great travel companions and the added benefit of bringing along your pet is the cost. Kennels and animal boarding homes can be pricey which ultimately leaves you with less spending money.
There's no need to limit your choice of holiday as there are plenty of pet friendly lodgings and locations in Australia that provide facilities catering for both you and your pet. Choose from various accommodation types including a cottage, cabin, beach house, bed and breakfast, villa, resort, hotel, motel, unit, caravan park, camping ground or farm stay.
Before you book, it's wise to check with the accommodation owners/managers beforehand to make sure the facilities are suitable. Guidelines for pet stays vary from place to place, for example, some only allow toilet trained animals inside and most don't allow animals on furniture or bedding. You want your family and pet to have an entertaining and memorable holiday so it pays to be prepared.
