In-Cabin means that your pet travels with you, in the aircraft cabin.  


This option is only suitable for smaller pets that can travel in a handheld soft carry-on crate.  


Often this is the cheapest option for pet transport, and the easiest for the owner.


Every airline has different stipulations and requirements for pets travelling in-cabin and it is advisable that you  use an experienced pet relocation agent to book everything for you to ensure a smooth and trouble free experience for you and your pet.


In-hold means that your pets travel in the aircraft's hold.  


Your pets travel on your ticket, on the same flights. Brachycephalic (snub nosed) and dangerous breeds are prohibited from travelling in-hold.

Ailrines do restrict the number of pets that can travel on an individual booking, and also restrict the number of pets travelling on a flight in-hold.

Every airline has different stipulations and requirements for pets travelling in-hold and it is advisable that you use an experienced pet relocation agent to book everything for you to ensure a smooth and trouble free experience for you and your pet.


Cargo means that your pets travel on a separate ticket to you. The aircraft may be regular commercial flight, or a cargo only flight.  Either way, your pets will travel in a section of the aircraft specifically designed for pets.

The Cargo option is suitable for all animals, including some brachycephalic (snub nosed) breeds and dangerous breeds.

Booking your pets on cargo requires specialist knowledge and experience. Using a reliable pet relocation agent to make the booking, liaise with the airline, and prepare all documentation, is essential.

Transporting your pets as cargo may also require customs clearance both from the country you are leaving, and upon arrival. Again, this is a specialist task that we facilitate.

charter &


Charter means that we hire a plane specifically to meet your personal needs. This option does not come cheap, but it does give our clients the maximum flexibility for their departure point, destination, and schedule. Breed and size restrictions do not apply, and this option is particularly suited to owners with pets that cannot travel on commercial flights.  

Chaperone is a service that we provide for clients that want to be accompanied by an experienced traveller, or that want their pet to be accompanied on the flight. This option is suitable for owners that need additional support and assistance, and for owners that cannot travel with their pets due to other circumstances.  Our chaperone service is highly personalised and specific to the client's needs.

Elaine Green
(Principle contact and founder)

As an international travel agent with over 20 years of experience working for major corporations, including American Express, Unilever, and Deloitte, I have a deep understanding of the travel industry. My passion for travel led me to become an expat family myself, relocating with my own family and four dogs internationally.

Drawing on my travel skills and expertise, I founded Pet Relocation International (PRI) in 2018 to help other families with their pet relocation needs. Today, we're a registered company in the United States, certified by the USDA, IATA Live Animal Regulation Certified, and a member of the Animal Transport Association (ATA) and verified by Trustpilot.

At PRI, we take pride in our reputation for reliability, communication, and cost-saving. We understand that travel can be challenging, which is why we're dedicated to providing a stress-free pet relocation experience that reduces risk and uncertainty. Whether you're relocating across the country or across the globe, our team of experts is committed to ensuring your pets travel reliably, safely, and comfortably. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help make your pet's journey a success.
