So, what are the things that you need to know and to do in order to make it possible for the animals to be in the cheap flights along with you?

  1. Pet carriage rules vary from airline to airline. So, just make a check on your selected airline or airlines as to which animals are allowed to be carried and which ones are not. Normally, dogs and cats are allowed by most of the airlines on their domestic as well as international flights.
  2. For the destination country where you are taking these, you need to know what are their policy requirements for bringing in the pets from other countries? Different countries have different policies depending upon which countries the pets are being brought from.
