What Are Some Tips for Finding Pet-Friendly Vacation Cottages?

When searching for pet-friendly vacation cottages, pet owners should be prepared to set aside extra time for the search. It may be difficult to find a place that allows pets, especially if traveling with a large dog. Pet owners should also have all of their documentation for the animal prepared to show.

Rental companies or owners may also ask pet owners to pay for extra insurance or a little more rent per week or month. This is to help defray any potential costs to repair pet damage.

It is also a good idea to check out a directory of pet-friendly travel and lodging businesses, such as BringFido.com. Follow the steps below to find pet-friendly rentals.
