South East Queensland Pet Taxis are the only local Pet Transporter able to offer Airport Transfers for your whole family. Our air conditioned bus can safely transport up to seven family members and their luggage along with your pets if required, saving you the hassle of having to arrange multiple services for the one trip.
Whether you have arranged your Pets flight details yourself, or through one of the many Pet travel agents we are able to assist with the transfer between your home and the Airport.
Our PET Shuttle services to both Brisbane and Coolangatta airports service all the main Airlines & Freight terminals or we can collect from or deliver to any of the many Pet Transport Agents operating throughout the area.
Your pets can travel in their own travel crate or in one supplied by us at no additional charge. Larger animals will be housed in the cages built into our PET TAXI vehicles. We do have Plastic Airline approved travel crates for sale, if required, for your smaller pets.
Pets travelling to South East Queensland with Dogmovers Regional & Interstate services for further air travel to other states and territories will usually spend the night with us at our Gold Coast facilities before being transferred to the airport on the day of departure.
Flights may be booked by yourself directly with the airlines or their Freight forwarders or through one of the many Pet travel Agencies that service the area.
If you are travelling yourself on the same flight the airlines will allow you to book your pets at the cheaper excess baggage rates at the time of booking your tickets. If this is the case it is very important that you have an appropriate crate available or hire one through a Pet Travel Agent. Additionally in this instance the pet cannot be lodged with the airline by a 3rd Party, you may need to travel with us or meet us at the freight terminal to lodge your pet 90 minutes before the flight as lodgement and collection in this case can only be done by the person travelling with the pet.
For domestic flights on Virgin or Qantas, lodgement of pets is usually made 90 minutes before the flight is due to leave. If you have organised the flights yourself it is imperative that the travel crate is airline approved and of an appropriate size for the animal to avoid delays or additional costs at lodgement time as the airlines will refuse to accept inappropriate containers.
AAE (Australian Air Express), QANTAS freight agent, will also require a veterinary form for all pups and kittens under 12 weeks of age. And there are documents that may need to be signed by the owner prior to lodgement.
