Travelling abroad with, or without, your cat need not be stressful for you or your feline friend. Here at Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, we can help you to find the purrrrfect service to match your travel requirements, whether you are looking for accommodation for your beloved feline while you are away, or even if you plan to take them with you …

Feline the loveWhether you are travelling abroad for an extended period, or a shorter break, then Longcroft can offer the best quality of care for your feline friend. We can put together a package which provides a home-from-home experience for your cat and the peace of mind you need that they are receiving the very highest standard of care. 

Longcroft’s 5-star, comfortable, hygienic and air-conditioned accommodation comes as standard. But we also include lots of one-on-one care and human interaction, which marks us apart from the competition. We can tailor our service to meet your kitty’s needs, because we know that every pussycat is different and we are experts in feline care. This might include providing a specific diet, administering medication for elderly cats, offering additional play sessions for more active guests, or even spa sessions for more pampered pussycats! We can also organise kitty chauffeur transfers to and from your home or the airport, with one of our trusted drivers, for maximum convenience. It is always our pleasure to see how we can meet your cat’s needs. And whatever you require, you’ll get lots of regular updates and photos from us, to let you know how you kitty is doing and to ensure you don’t miss out on any adorable highlights!

If you are planning to travel abroad with your cat, perhaps because you are relocating with your pet, then we can offer the support you need with travel arrangements too. We have recently partnered with PrivateFly, a private jet charter, that can arrange a private flight that enables you to travel with your pet, rather than having them travel in the hold. Like us, PrivateFly recognises that your beloved pet is part of your family, and will make every effort to ensure your pussycat’s travel is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Flying need not be traumatic for your kitty – they can travel with you in the aircraft cabin, with their welfare and comfort a priority.

If a private charter isn’t for you, and whatever your travel needs, rest assured Longcroft can help: we also regularly work with AirPets, to book the flights needed to transport felines safely around the World. We can also arrange transfers with one of our trusted drivers and of course accommodation for your kitty at one of our hotels at either end of your trip, if their travel dates differ from yours.

At Longcroft, we are also experts in pet travel documentation requirements for flying or travelling abroad, including recent changes due to the UK’s departure from the EU. We can liaise with trusted veterinarians and airlines to ensure you have the documentation, vaccinations and microchips required to ensure there are no difficulties when you travel with your kitty. We can also advise on insurance products and how to make the experience as comfortable and stress free as possible for your furry friend and you. 

So, if you are planning travel in the future and need help with care for your favourite feline, do get in touch … visit or call 01707 832 000.
