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 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.
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.
