A trip can be fun. A trip with your pet is even more fun. If you’re like me and live in a city, you may not have a car and renting is the only option for road trips. There are quite a few pet friendly car rental agencies. Some charge additional fees and others have strict terms and conditions regarding pets who ride in the car, such as must be in a carrier or must clean the car and not leave pet hair on the seats.
A number of the rental companies do not have their pet policy on their websites, so it is best to call and make a reservation and double check their policy guidelines.
