I need some information about taking my dog with me. Can you give me a site I can look at what I need to take the dog with me?

Dear Editors,

I need some information about taking my dog with me on a flight to PA. Can you give me a site I can look at what I need to take the dog with me?

Thank you,

Hi Lucinda,

This is one of those situations that is very common among traveling pet owners. As such, you’d likely think there was a simple-to-understand, uniform policy across airlines that dealt with pet travel. Unfortunately, this is not the case and so there isn’t one perfect resource I can direct you to for information. However, I will try my best to help you navigate various airline policies. For general information about pet travel, I recommend PetTravel.com.

Bereavement Fares: The Best Airlines For Compassion Fares

Update: This continues to be a very popular post so I thought I’d update the information since airline policies for bereavement fares tend to change. But first I’d like to thank all of the travelers who wrote about their experiences in the comments section of this post. I know that losing a loved one is hard and booking a compassion fare is very stressful. Your advice is wonderful and you’re helping other people navigate this challenging period.

General Info: Bereavement or compassion fares aren’t always the best option for those traveling at the last minute. Let’s weigh the pros and cons.

Snowmageddon Slows Travelers Down

As I wrote last week in my post about Mammoth Mountain, the Groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, and, given the Snowpacalypse that’s taken place in the Mid-Atlantic, I’d say Pennsylvania-based Mr. Groundhog has more than earned his prognosticator’s keep (although he may have to worry because I’d imagine that by now several people want to put a bounty out on his head). Unless you’ve been channeling the Groundhog himself and hiding in a burrow all this time, then you’re probably aware that in the Mid-Atlantic, it has snowed ridiculously, copiously, and epically, forcing airports to stop operations, flights to be cancelled, and many neighborhood streets to be impassable.
