7 Best Pets For People Who Travel

7 Best Pets For People Who Travel

Having a pet is excellent, but it takes a lot of work. It’s basically like having a kid, and you need to be around to look after them. You can’t just leave a dog on its own for a couple of days, so people that travel a lot for work often think that pets just aren’t an option for them.

Going out of town requires creating an itinerary that includes hotel bookings, restaurant recommendations, and museum tickets. If you have little pets at home, you'll need to hire pet sitters to feed them and keep them safe.

Moreover, several little dogs will suit your needs if you travel frequently. Pets that perform well even when left alone for days are also available. Here are a few pocket pets you might wish to bring into your life of continual travel.

Small Pets That Can Travel With You

Some pets travel well by plane, vehicle, or train. However, before taking your pet with you, ensure sure your specified airline or transportation provider allows pets.

Please note that particular cat and dog breeds might not do well during plane travel, so it's better to leave them at home or see your vet for any measures you need to take.


Fish are among the most simple creatures to keep. Obviously, you can't play with them as you would with a dog or a cat, but if you're never at home, you have to compromise.

A tank full of exotic fish is an excellent addition to any house, and they also make lovely pets. However, do your homework before purchasing them because they require precise circumstances. You might also get some koi carp if you have a pond outside.

Small ponds may overheat in the summer and endanger the fish. It's also critical to ensure that ammonia and nitrates in the water are low enough; otherwise, the fish may perish.


People are generally wary of keeping rats as pets, although they do not deserve their poor image. People think of rats as filthy creatures digging about in their garbage cans, but they aren't like if you have one as a pet.

They're pretty clean creatures, and they're very loving as pets. A further advantage of having a rat is that they are quite tiny, making them easy to transport if traveling by vehicle rather than flying.

Dogs and Cats

Cats and dogs are avid travelers. They'll have to stay in an airline- or company-approved container most of the time.

On airlines, check with the crew ahead of time to see whether your pet may travel in the cabin with you. You may have to pay more expenses, but the long flight will be less stressful than being alone in a different section of the plane.

Dogs travel better in automobiles than cats, so leave your pet at home with a friend or family member if you're going on a lengthy road trip.

Pets You Can Leave Home During Travel

Few pets are not that suitable to travel frequently. However, you can leave them home while you are on the go.

Hamsters are excellent traveling companions. Before you depart, make sure their automated feeder and water bottle are in perfect working order. If required, clean and change their bedding, and make sure the room temperature is comfortable.

Before you leave, leave a new rolling toy, labyrinth, or chew toy to keep them occupied until you return.


Snakes, like tarantulas, consume only on rare occasions. Younger snakes may require at least two meals each week, although adult snakes can go up to two weeks without eating.

It depends on the species, but your little snake will most likely require a temperature-controlled terrarium with heat lamps fitted.

Hermit Crabs

Hermit crabs might not be the only thing that comes to mind when you think of little pets, but they make excellent companions for travelers or people who frequently travel for business.

They merely require a terrarium set in a shaded spot, some bedding, and crushed food pellets. Spray some water on the plants in their terrarium.


Tarantulas do not eat very often. Feed them till they're full before a long weekend — live crickets, pre-killed crickets, mealworms, grasshoppers, and so on.

Leave the water for them to drink, though they’re unlikely to need it as they obtain most of their water content from food and the environment.


It's easy when you go alone, but when you have little pets, your preparations may need to be more complicated. Fortunately, many pocket pets travel well by many types of transportation. 

Even more, pets don't mind being left alone for days or weeks while you're away. We hope this post has helped you find the finest travel companion or at-home friend, and we wish you safe travels!
