TUCSON, AZ, November 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Many customers may be taken aback when they see the price of their pet's airline ticket, occasionally finding that it is even more than their own. When Happy Tails Travel researches flights for your pet, it looks at the most direct flights, then the best price and lastly how convenient it is for the owner. The best flight for your pet is not always the cheapest, nor is it necessarily the one most convenient for you, the owner.
There are many variables when it comes to airlines calculating prices for pets - sometimes this calculation is quite intricate and every airline has its own policy. Usually, price is linked to weight, so it is obviously cheaper to fly a small kitten than it would be to fly a Great Dane; however it may also be decided by the size of the crate. Additionally, multiple pets may fly for a lower price - compared to single pets - since the total weight might be taken into consideration. There is also greater variance in price between airlines for pets over 50 pounds while ticket prices for smaller pets tend to be more consistent.
Considering the many variables and comparative advantages and disadvantages, it really pays to have professional help from companies like Happy Tails Travel. A professional agency will do all the groundwork for you and advise you as to the optimal flight for your pet - one that is both cost effective and as safe and comfortable for the animal as possible.
