Shipper Restrictions on 
Pet Air Travel

Some airlines and/or countries will not allow pets to travel with you in-cabin or as accompanied baggage or they only accept live animal shipments from professional pet shippers. Check with your intended airline to review any specific pet shipping policies.

Optional Boarding for 
Your Pets

If necessary, we can board your pet until you are ready for them to travel. We’re happy to collect your pet from home, a relative, your veterinarian, or your favorite boarding kennel if you need extra time to relocate.

Our Policy on Flight Cancellations

Flight cancellations are rare. If your pet’s flight is canceled, we will pick them up and arrange for them to travel to you on the next possible flight. We will contact you and/or the consignee before making new travel arrangements.

Starwood’s Policy on 
Tranquilizers

Our first concern is always the health and safety of your pets. Tranquilizers or sedatives can be more harmful than helpful to your pet during air travel, so we will not ship sedated pets.

Tax Tip:
 Save Your Receipt

A lovely perk for this important process is that pet moving expenses are tax-deductible if the relocation is job-related. Please consult your accountant and refer to IRS publication #521.
