Passport lets pets off leash; Travel news.

IF there is one thing that can distress holidaymakers it is the thought of leaving behind a beloved pet.

And worrying about a cat or a dog left behind in a kennel or with friends can ruin time away for pet lovers - which is why the new style European Pet Passport is great news.

The special certificate, which covers dogs, cats and ferrets, as long as they have met necessary requirements, are issued by Local Veterinary Inspectors.

Once your special little friend has their passport they are free to travel with you to any other EU country - although when booking a holiday with your pet it's advisable to check hotels, guest houses, camp sites and even ports and shipping companies are pet-friendly.

One company who welcome dogs and will consider accepting visits from other animals is Bowhills. The French cottage and holiday specialists not only open the doors of all their properties to four-legged friends, they can also provide details of local vets who do the paperwork so your pet can return to the UK.

And travelling to France with your beloved pouch is easy, as St Malo is a Pet Travel Scheme nominated port. Then there is nothing left to do except let Fido off the leash to explore the countryside and beaches.
