Finding a pet-friendly hotel is the key for those who love our four-legged friends and want to travel with them. And it can be tricky.
Some hotels will require you to put down a pet deposit. That is to cover any damages your pet may make. Some hotels will specify the types of pets you can bring along. And, of course, some hotels clarify that pets aren’t allowed. So how do you find a pet-friendly hotel?
A lot of travellers scan websites and also rely on honest reviews. For Europe, there’s a website called Bringfido.com which helps you find pet-friendly hotels. Booking.com also has many pet-friendly hotels on its listings.
