Pet Travel
Here are some good links to sites with information on traveling with your pet.  The General Section websites cover travel by car, air and boat, entering and leaving the United States with a pet and other pet travel information.  The Traveling with Pets by air, car, train, bus and ship sections cover websites with information by the mode of transportation. We also have a section on Pets and Hotels and shipping pets. 

Many travel agencies and travel guides also cover traveling with pets.  Most online Pet Stores have a section on traveling with, or shipping, pets.  And, of course, the specific transportation company you are using (e.g., American Airlines, Princess Cruises, will have information on taking your pet along on their websites.) If you are traveling to another country with a pet, check both your county's rules for taking a pet out of the country and bringing it back in, as well as, the rules for the countries you are visiting.
Search the Web
Sometimes the quickest way to get information is just to do a web search using the appropriate key words. For example: Europe ferry pet policies, Delta airline pet policy, Comfort Inn pet policy, Does Greyhound allow pets on buses?
