Should They Stay or Should They Go?

November 11, 2010

A recent survey released by shares the impact our furry friends have on our holiday travel plans. The Holiday Pet Travel Survey interviewed more than 7,000 pet owners worldwide and found the majority of pet owners chose to stay close to home when booking their holiday travel agenda.

Surprisingly, a third of respondents said if they do travel they stay at pet-friendly hotels and about 66 percent said they keep their pets at home with friends or family during the holiday season. The majority of pet owners said that their pets influence where they decide to stay during the Holidays.

Traveling in and of itself can be exhausting and stressful, let alone traveling during the holiday season.  Why do the majority of pet owners chose to travel with their beloved companions? A majority of pet owners agreed, “because pets are part of the family and should be with the rest of the family during holiday occasions.”
