Alpine holidays with dogs

If you love your holidays but always feel sad at the prospect of leaving behind your four-legged friend, then a summer holiday to the French Alps is the answer! 

A change of scenery, plenty of space, breathtaking vistas, deep-blue lakes and stunning mountain walks make for dog (and owner!) heaven.

Taking your dog in and out of the UK

The UK has left the European Union and is now in a transition period until the 31st December 2020.  During the transition period, to travel with your pet to the EU until the end of December, you can continue to use your valid Pet Passport. If you don’t have a current UK–issued EU Pet Passport, you will need to speak to your vet. We always recommend you talk to your vet before travel to ensure you have the most current advice.

From 1 January 2021, the rules for travelling to EU countries including France with your pet will change. To make sure your pet is able to travel from the UK to the EU from 1 January 2021, you should contact your vet at least four months before travelling to get the latest advice. Current advice on travelling with pets can be found on the GOV.UK Pet Travel to Europe website.

If you need further information, contact the Pet Travel Scheme helpline 
Telephone: 0370 241 1710 
Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm (closed on bank holidays)
