How Many People Travel with Pets? And how do you travel?

How Many People Travel with Pets?

About 68% of American households, and 85 million families, own a pet. These data are from a survey of the American Pet Products Association (1) . In 2018, $ 62 billion was spent on pets, including more than $ 6.2 billion on services such as accommodation and grooming.

Websites such as Burkert’s or BringFido.com specialize in identifying pet-friendly hotels.

The travel industry is a big business. In the USA Travel expenses reached $ 898 billion in 2018. And an important part of travel spending is not only for people, but also for their pets. When pet owners travel by road or plane they have only two options: 

  • Take your pet with them to any place.
  • Another person takes over, rented or not.

These options are not only for tourism or pleasure trips but also for business or other reasons.


How Many People Travel with Pets?: The pet transport business is becoming more prosperous. In the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (3), all the companies that are responsible for the transfer of pets are associated. Many of these companies offer products to meet demand.

Pet friendly companies include airlines that offer cabin travel options for $ 125 each way for dogs and small cats. Snakes, pheasants, pigs and monkeys are not allowed.

There is also the option to send pets in the cargo hold. Prices can vary from $ 60 to $ 500 depending on the route. Annually more than 2 million pets and other live animals are transported by air only in the United States. And they are more than 4 million globally. According to data from the International Association of Pet and Animal Transportation (4) , only United transported 138,000 animals (2017 figures).

Where do I Take my Pet when I Travel?

If you do not take your dog on a trip with you, you have to resort to some pet complex. To be a pet friendly place, you have to meet at least three conditions

  • Is there anyone on site 24/7 with physical presence? Not only with a remote camera
  • How long do dogs have to play? Or what is your entertainment policy ?. They don’t have to be locked in a cage all day
  • Do you have emergency procedures? Which are?
  • If a pet is aggressive, fights or bites, what is the procedure to resolve that situation?
  • Do you have a policy to maintain order?


The Pet Friendly Awards

LA Travel Magazine (5) awards several prizes per year  – see LA Travel Magazine 2019 Awards  (6) – in more than 20 categories. They also have two categories for pets. The categories and winners are:

  • BEST PET RESORT
    D Pet Hotels Los Angeles (Encino) (7)
  • BEST PET-FRIENDLY HOTEL
    La Quinta Resort & Club – Palm Springs California (8)

La Quinta Resort & Club, which is a Waldorf Astoria property, can bring two dogs up to 75 pounds each. And also a $ 100 cleaning fee is paid. Hotels like La Quinta and Red Roof Inn, accept pets free of charge. But the trend also reaches up to luxury hotels like the W and the Marriott. These hotels have incredible services for pets: pet rooms, pet sitters, pet walks.

The magazine editor (LA Travel Magazine) says she publishes at least one “Pet Friendly” article every month. Readers love edo. “Millennials tend to get married later. They have money and often spend it on their pets, says the magazine editor

And how do you travel with pets?: Room Service for Dogs

A detail to keep in mind: many hotels allow pets, but they are not really dog ​​friendly. The Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, California (9) really is, according to the editor of LA Travel. This hotel has no additional charge, regardless of size, weight or race. The hotel is steps away from Huntington Dog Beach, an unrestricted dog beach. The hotel has a pet menu. It also has its own Room service for dogs.

 Travel & Dining with Dogs

The state of New York converted the Dining with Dogs (10) project into law. This law allows any restaurant in the state to open its outdoor space to dogs. In early 2015, a similar law entered into force in California. Also Tennessee, Maryland and Florida are among the states that have eased restaurant restrictions regarding the admission of pets. .

Beer for Dogs

The Indianapolis Flat 12 Bierwerks brewery (11) allowed dogs in its yard last summer. He also created an alcohol-free beer for dogs made with meat ornaments. California and Florida are the friendliest states with dog food, according to the dogfriendly.com ® website. (12)

Beer for dog
How many people travel with pets? Beer for dog

By the way, the DogFriendly.com ® website has published pet travel guides worldwide for people with dogs of all sizes and breeds. There are hotel search engines that allow pets. Tourist sites, shops and historical sites, camps, parks. Also strapless parks, beaches, skiing and more. It is a website with a lot of pet friendly information especially in the United States.


Pets Travel by Train

Until 2014 Amtrak (14) not allowed pets (with the exception of service animals) to travel on their trains since the 1970s. He then tested the launch of a pilot program in Illinois. Amtrak decided it was time to try being pet friendly and chose only a few routes. On those routes Amtrak would charge $ 25 for a dog or cat that weighed up to 20 pounds and fit in a carrier under the seat of a pet owner.

According to Amtrak, “about 200 animals have accompanied passengers without a single complaint or incident.” Then the program became permanent a year later. In late 2015, Amtrak announced that pets could also travel with owners on certain routes in the northeast. In February 2016, he announced that pets could travel on most of their long-distance trains for up to seven hours.

Amtrak is now considering transporting larger animals as seasonally checked luggage. This had not been done by Amtrak since 1970.

Towards a Pet Friendly world traveler

We all want to enjoy our pets. We no longer want to leave them at home or in a kennel. That is why years after year more people travel the world (and also at home) with their pets. That is why pet services appear at all times that were previously only reserved to their owners. What we describe today in the blog is just a small sample. We will certainly be expanding it soon. Good luck to you all

The Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited in the country, with eleven million tourists. The large forest located between North Carolina and Tennesse was once an ancient hunting place for Native Cherokee Indians. Today is a home of over a thousand Black Bear

Through one of the paths that run through this great forest, Cades Cove is reached, a valley where there are still wooden cabins and churches that populated this place in the 19th century.


Bear pepper spray

Beware of Bears

One of the main attractions is the presence of around 1,500 black bears that live free in these mountains. The ratio is one bear every 494 acres, so they can be observed relatively easily from the viewpoints. Or in the same paths.

The national park is admitted that you can carry pepper spray for bears. This is to repel any bear attack.

Tips (7) to choose a Travel Power Bank 2019-2020

Price

We can find external batteries of great quality from US $ 20 to no more than 50-60 euros. Cheaper batteries usually have a capacity of 10,000 mAh, enough to charge an iPhone up to 3 times. While the most powerful batteries have up to 85,000 mAh load.

Capacity

All the models in our list have a minimum capacity of 10,000 mAh to be able to charge the mobile phone at least 3 times. The most powerful batteries, + – 26,000 mAh allow to charge our mobile at least 8 times

Weight and size

Again, the weight and size are linked to the load capacity of the external battery. lighter batteries can weigh less than 10 oz (250 grams) with very small dimensions that make us not realize that we are carrying them. The most powerful external batteries usually have a weight of around 20 Oz (500 grams)

Security

Check if an external battery is suitable for air travel

The regulation specifies that the nominal capacity must be less than 100 Wh (Watt-Hour). That is to say: any power bank with a capacity lower than 27000 mAh (at 3.7V) is apt to be carried on an airplane as carry-on luggage.  – See the TSA regulations


How is the nominal capacity calculated in Wh?

Normally, the Travel power bank specification sheet usually indicates its nominal capacity in Ah and Wh but, if you can not find it, you can calculate it for yourself:

As you already know, a power bank consists of a set of lithium-ion batteries of a certain capacity and a voltage between 3.6 Volts 3.8 Volts.

To know the nominal capacity in Watt-hour (Wh) you must multiply the total capacity of the power bank indicated in mAh by this voltage and divide by 1000:

Rated capacity (Wh) = (mAh x V) / 1000

For example: An external battery with a capacity of 20000 mAh and a voltage of 3.7V, the nominal capacity will be:

Rated capacity = (20000 mAh x 3.7V) / 1000 = 74 Wh <100 Wh

Benjamin Franklin’s house in London

Know the Benjamin Franklin’s house in London

The Residence of one of the founding fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin, is located on Craven Street ( London ), just minutes from Trafalgar Square.

The house was built in 1730. It was inhabited by Franklin between 1757 and 1775. Currently, there is a museum and an educational center. Visitors can learn what Mr. Franklin’s student life was like. Also the experiments and scientific discoveries made in London.

Benjamin Franklin's house in london
Benjamin Franklin in 1767. Portrait by David Martin

Franklin’s main occupation in London was that of mediator between Britain and the United States. Meanwhile, science also occupied an important part of his life. I investigate, bifocal lenses and economic kitchens.

In the upper floor of the house there is a European coordination center for the study of Mr. Franklin. A complete set of Benjamin Franklin documents cataloged by Yale University can also be located. Also a symposium program


Bones at Benjamin Franklin’s house in London

As the house that Benjamin Franklin lived in London still existed, in 1998 it was thought to install in it a Museum dedicated to his memory. At the beginning of the remodeling work when digging in the basement, 15 bodies were found buried in a secret room that had no windows and looked under the garden. The skeletons were in a hole one meter wide by one meter deep. In total there were more than 1,200 pieces. Studies showed that they were from the time when Mr. Franklin lived in that house.

Benjamin Franklin's house in london

The head of these bones was the anatomist William Hewson, son-in-law of the owner of the house that housed Mr. Franklin. Hewson carried out anatomical studies in his home and possibly, due to the country’s restrictive laws on body dissections. The corpses were bought in the black market. Some of those bones had cuts, others had scalpel marks and even skulls. perforated

William Hewson died shortly after Mr. Franklin returned to the United States. The cause of death was due to an infection caused by a cut with the scalpel while dissecting a corpse.

Many doctors turned to the resurrectionists (body dealers) to get bodies to dissect. The remains of those that Hewson used went to that hole in the basement of his house after being used
