Here at Pet Travel we like to keep things pretty simple.

We only offer two types of domestic flights:

  • Within the island, (e.g. Wellington to Auckland)
  • Between the islands, (e.g. Auckland to Christchurch)

Basically, we can send your pets to where ever there is a domestic airport.


  • $160.00 for a within the island booking, for up to 20kg including the weight of the cage, for one pet.
  • $250.00 for a between the islands booking for up to 20kg, including the weight of the cage, for one pet.
  • The above  flight prices include a $30.00 service fee charged by Pet Travel.
  • Empty crate return from Airport to Airport $60.00 <15kg.
  • Please note there is a 3% surcharge on all credit card bookings as of 08.10.18.

There is a $20.00 charge for an extra pet on the consignment (maximum 3 pets and one cage per consignment) and if the weight of the pet/s combined goes over 20kg, then charges will need to be paid at checkin for the extra kilos.  These being $5.90 per kg within Island and $10.00 per kg between Islands.

If you are needing to travel 2 pets in 2 cages, this is deemed as two consignments, (2 x Bookings) as each cage is to be booked seperately with its own reference number.

Check in is 70 minutes prior to Departure time.

**Animals fly under the terms and conditions of Air New Zealand.  A declaration must be signed at time of checking your pet in.

Some useful tips for preparing your pet for travel

Don’t overfeed your pet on the morning of travel.  A light breakfast is all that is needed.

Please ensure that your pet has some sort of bedding in its travel cage that will absorb moisture if they have a mishap.  Puppy pads or newspaper are good to put in the bottom with a light blanket on top. (Our cages come with puppy pads)

Take your dog for a good walk so it goes to the toilet prior to going into its travel crate.  This will also help with it wanting to sleep in transit.
