Los Angeles, California – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Longtime Elite Traveler contributing editor and celebrity writer Kelly Carter has launched The Jet Set Pets, a website featuring a wealth of essential advice and hot tips for jetsetters and their furry companions. The first and only one-stop resource for luxury pet travel expertise runs the gamut from popular countries’ pet entry regulations to the best hotels (videos included!) for pet-pampering “parents” on the go.
Kelly has traveled with her longhair chihuahua Lucy for ten years, and worked as a travel and lifestyle writer for 15, making her the world’s foremost authority on travel with a pet in tow. She has written on the topic for USA Today and the Los Angeles Times, among others, and explains, “Because people travel more frequently than they did 20 years ago and pets are viewed as family members more than ever, it’s just natural that pet parents would want to take their kids with them.”
While numerous sites list pet-friendly accommodations, The Jet Set Pets goes above and beyond, offering the latest news in hotels and transportation, pet events, essential pet products, and pet spas and groomers. Whether you’re heading to Doha, Cape Town, Venice or New York, you’ll never be left wondering where your pet(s) will get the warmest welcome, where they’ll be treated to ever-better pet perks.
Since their meeting in 2001, Kelly and Lucy have traveled extensively together, staying at many lavish hotels and experiencing the best amenities offered to four-legged guests, including side-by-side massages for pets and their guardians, butler-served room service for pets and canine concierges to walk dogs. “Early on, it was extremely rare to see anyone else on an airplane or at a hotel with their pet. Now it’s customary to see someone with their pet going through airport security or someone walking their dog through the lobby of a fancy hotel,” says Kelly. She reminds readers than there’s no need to sacrifice luxury when traveling with a pet.
In addition to offering essential pet travel information, The Jet Set Pets hosts a social networking community for pets (think Facebook), forums for owners to communicate and a directory that donates ten percent of advertising revenue to pet-related charitable causes.
