At Pet Moves, we know the best person to take care of your pets when travelling internationally is you. Our service makes your journey to and from the UK easy, comfortable and relaxing, your pet always by your side.

Premium Service

Our pet chauffeur service puts you and your pet first, with the highest standards of care with advice and support from door to door.


At Pet Moves, we’re all animal lovers ourselves, so we’ll treat your pet as if they were a member of our own family.

Comfortable Travel

Your pets travel by your side or on your lap (you decide!) with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the journey.

Flexible Options

After your flight together, we’ll chauffeur you to your door in London, or Paris, to airports and stations or anywhere in between.

Fly to the UK with your Pet right by your side

Pets aren’t luggage. They may not be able to sip champagne, but they deserve first class travel. That’s where we come in.

With our help, you can travel to the UK with your pet by your side, all the way. Instead of flying to Heathrow (with your pet stressed and scared in the cargo), you’ll fly to Paris. In most cases, this means that your dog or cat can travel with you in the cabin, even some larger dogs. We’ll meet you at the airport and chauffeur you and your pet to the UK, with your Pet by your side. We can also help with any return journeys too.

We’ve helped clients travelling from the US, Canada and many other countries so we’re really experienced with the required documentation for travelling with your pets. With that in mind, we offer our advise and check service for your Pet’s documents, to make sure everything is in order to give you complete peace of mind.

“My wife and I were relocating from Helsinki, Finland to the UK. We were shocked and a little bit panicked when we discovered that we could not fly our large Rottweiler cross into the UK. After much research we found Barry and Pet Moves. He really helped put our minds at rest and every detail was looked after. The journey went like clockwork. Thank you Barry. Brilliant service!!”

Why fly to France rather than direct to the UK?

Due to the UK’s specific regulations, flying direct to London with a pet is a complicated process. For a start, your pet would have to go in the hold, whatever their size. In many cases, they would have to wait for several hours after landing before you would be allowed to collect them. So, you’d be apart for much longer than you should be.

Your pet could easily end up being stuck in a cage for many hours, with no breaks.

When you fly to France rather than direct to London, smaller pets can usually travel with you in the cabin. Larger dogs may need to go in the hold. However, they will still board at the same time as you, and exit the airport with you. As a result, your pet will spend less time apart from you, which is much less stressful for them.

As an added bonus, our pet move service is often more cost-effective than flying direct to the UK. And you get to see some of the beautiful French countryside from the comfort of a chauffeur driven car.

Hassle-free travelling

We know all too well how stressful relocating can be. The last thing you need is the added worry of whether your pet will be properly looked after by an airline company, or whether you have all the paperwork you need. We make the process as streamlined and stress-free as possible, so that you, and your pet, can enjoy travelling to the UK.

We’ll meet you in France (usually at Charles de Gaulle airport), before driving you to London, or another location in the South East of England if you prefer.


We’ve always maintained a high standard of hygiene. Our cars are sanitised between every Pet Move using pet friendly products.

A family business

Pet Moves is a small but impressive business with family members Edward & Barry taking care of you. Living on a small holding with most domestic animals including our pet cats, Missie and Oscar together with Goldie the Labrador, means we understand just how important your pets are to you. After all, Pets are family.

“We highly recommend Pet Moves if you’re thinking about flying to the UK with pets, it’s a much better alternative – much more convenient for you and kinder to your pets. It was also a good financial decision because by the time you add up the difference of how much cheaper it is to fly to Paris with your pets, the cost of an overnight stay near the Cargo Center, the fees and other costs – using Pet Moves really made sense.”
