New Dog or Cat IATA approved Carriers are expensive.
If you only need a Crate for a once off Journey it might be better to just rent one for the Day.
I have various sized Crates available you could rent. ALL IATA approved so there won’t be any Issues with non acceptance at the Airport.
Rental Charges vary because I need to bring them back as checked in luggage which of course costs and varies from Airline to Airline.
Sometimes I also need to leave them at the Destination in the Overnight Luggage Storage Facility at the Airport.
Rented Crates need to be brought back by on my Return Flight as booked in Luggage.
Various Airlines charge different Prices for booked In Luggage, that is why the Rent Prices can be different depending on which Return Flight / Airline I have.
As an Estimate it can be anything between € 25.00 to € 45.00 to Rent a Crate.
Adopters need to come to the Destination Airport with their own Soft or Hard Crate (or Leash in case of a Dog) to transfer the Animal into (preferably in a closed environment such as Car or Disabled Toilets etc.)
Should I rent or buy a cage to transport my animal by plane?
A transport cage is essential to fly your pet, whether it is a dog or cat. Also be aware that the transport cage for your pet must be IATA certified.
Recently IATA made some Changes to their specifications of the Travel Crates and some Crates we were able to use before are now NOT accepted anymore.
Discover what is an IATA certified cage. An un-certified cage IATA will see the departure of your pet refused.
Be careful not to buy or rent a cage in a hurry on the internet because many cages have the characteristics of cage standards for the transport of your pet plane but are not IATA certified.Various Sizes for renting Dog or Cat IATA approved Travel Crates.
