Nothing helps a new place feel like home than being able to bring your pet with you. Whether you have a dog or a cat, you’ll want a place that is pet-friendly. Having a home that allows pets can help your temporary home feel more comfortable and help you ease the transition for family members as well. Homelike offers a wide variety of pet-friendly rental options.
Taking pets with you on longer business trips or temporary relocations is becoming increasingly popular. But there are some things you need to keep in mind if you want to travel with your pet for a longer period of time and move into a furnished apartment.
We’ve put together some information for you.
In general, all animals that are not considered dangerous can be kept in the apartment. However, the landlord must approve this, unless you keep small animals such as hamsters, rabbits, or turtles.
If you book a furnished apartment from Homelike, you can check on the page of the apartment under “Rules” whether a pet is allowed. If the answer is “Yes”, you can be sure that you are allowed to bring your pet with you.
Woof! Don’t get caught out! Before traveling, be sure to take out a pet owner’s liability policy that also applies in the country to which you are traveling.
Do you travel for several months or are you considering relocating completely? Then the best thing to do is to check on site which insurance you can take out for your pet and which services are included.
For furnished apartments, it is important that the insurance also includes rental damage. Our Standard package includes insurance to cover damages made from pets.
You should be aware that there may be different laws for pet owners depending on where you are going. Especially as far as the entry of pets is concerned, it is advisable to deal with national laws beforehand. If you are traveling in Europe, your pet will need an EU Pet Passport.
Research – different countries have different entry requirements for pets. Find out the requirements for your destination country before visiting the vet. You will also need to check whether there are any requirements to return to your home country.
Visit the vet – your pet will need a microchip, a rabies vaccination, and a general health check at a minimum. An official EU vet will issue your pet’s passport. Your pet may also require additional treatments or vaccinations depending on where you are going.
