Travel Tips for a Pet-Approved Getaway

Are you getting ready to hit the road for a getaway with your four-legged friend and need some advice? Don’t worry, we gotcha! As a pet-friendly company, we’ve put together a list of tips for you to keep in mind when traveling with your furry pal. 


  1. Find Pet-Friendly Lodging Ahead of Time: Don’t make the mistake of showing up to your hotel assuming they are pet-friendly! While many of our properties welcome pets, not every hotel does. Doing your research ahead of time sets better expectations. Hotels normally have select pet-friendly rooms to choose from and may offer special pet-friendly perks! Remember to also budget the nightly pet fees that usually come with booking pet-friendly rooms. 


  1. Visit Official Destination Marketing Organization Websites: Now that you’ve got lodging covered, it’s time to plan a pet-friendly itinerary! The absolute best way to discover restaurants, attractions and events that will welcome your best pal is by visiting the official Destination Marketing Organization websites. (Ex: Visit Slo Cal, Visit Cambria, Highway 1 Discovery Route, Visit California, Travel Oregon, Travel Salem). 

    The official Destination Marketing Organizations are the experts when it comes to the area you are traveling to. Often, you’ll find they have blogs and itineraries that list all the best spots to visit with your companion. 


  1. Bring Along Your Pet’s Favorite Toys: Even if your pet is a pro traveler, don’t forget to bring along their favorite toy or blanket! Visiting new places can be exciting but also nerve-wracking. To help ease and comfort your furry companion, consider bringing along their must-have toy!
