The new name in pet friendly accommodation, Passpawt.com, is set to shake up the pet travel market this year
Aiming to put an end to the hassle of trawling through hundreds of websites to find the ideal holiday destination for you and your dog, the website has instantly become the UK's largest provider, with over 6,500 properties in Britain alone.
To celebrate the launch, the website is donating five per cent of its commission made between January and the end of March 2018 to Canine Partners, a charity that provides specially trained dogs who help with a range of complex conditions, including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and strokes. These vital assistance dogs are capable of everything, from fetching help in an emergency to picking up dropped items, helping applicants undress, retrieve cash and cards from ATMs and even load the washing machine.
Passpawt.com is hoping that the January holiday surge will help to raise thousands of pounds for the charity.
Encompassing a wide range of pet-friendly accommodation, along with hundreds of independent property owners, the website is aiming to make searching for the ideal pet-friendly accommodation an easier experience.
Commenting on the launch, Director Stewart Black said: "We believe in simple solutions that work well for all. We want to make travel with pets the norm, not the exception, and so we’ve created a solution that gives both guests and owners of accommodation the information they need to ensure the best possible holiday experience."
"For the pet owner, Passpawt.com provides the easiest route to the largest collection of pet-friendly accommodation in the UK and beyond, at the same price that they could find by going direct. Better still, it enables guests to see all the little extras that are provided by our holiday home hosts for our pet guests and their owners. We even provide area guides so that you can plan your break around things to do, places to visit and great experiences for you and your pet."
"Add to that planned tools that will help guests travel with their pets internationally, and an online ‘Passport’ for each pet so that guests can upload pictures, vaccination information and much more, and we believe we have a service that will prove incredibly popular."
"And, by booking with Passpawt.com, you can also do something truly meaningful as 5% of commission taken on bookings up to the end of March will go to our deserving friends at Canine Partners, enabling them to train canine companions that provide unconditional love, and much needed confidence and independence to their owners."
