How Much Does It Cost to Fly a Pet?

Blue Collar Pet Transport is committed to giving your pets the highest level of care when being transported to their destination. Being a USDA certified pet transport company, our ultimate goal is not just to safely relocate them but to also make your loved ones as comfortable as ever. We can even customize their travel experience — let us know what your requests are and we’ll do exactly what you want. 

We fly a pet either by ground or air. The cost varies depending on the mode of transport and whether they will be relocated within Central Florida or nationwide. BCPT can also relocate pets to Canada and internationally. Contact us directly for international transport.  

We offer five different pet transport services to accommodate all of your needs and budget. Expedited transport is also available for an additional fee. All of our relocation services include assistance by an experienced handler, top quality pet care, customized experienced and constant updates of your pet’s journey. 

Shared Transport

Blue Collar Pet Transport caters to all budgets. Shared ride pet transport is the most economical ground relocation service for pets to be transported outside central Florida. Ideal for the budget-conscious, this service includes a set route with at least two or five other pets. 

While this service does not offer more luxurious care compared to private pet transport and in-cabin air transport, we do ensure that your pet is very comfortable. Your pet is safe with our experienced handler who would make sure that your loved one is properly cared for. All pets will be fed with food recommended by their owners.

For US customers, the cost for a shared ride is $0.40 per mile plus a $350 handling fee. In Canada, it’s $0.80 per mile with a handling fee of $700. For additional pets, you get a 50% discount off the original rate. We require you to pay us a week in advance or an expedition fee of about $500 will be assessed. 

After making a reservation, we allow 7 to 14-day pick-up windows for your pets and they will be transported from one to 10 days. 

If you want high-quality care for your pets at an affordable price, this relocation service is for you. 

Private Pet Transport

A one-on-one relocation service, this private pet transport offers direct ground transfer from your location to the pet’s destination. Unlike a shared ride, this service is more flexible. We can pick up your pet any day you like and drop it off on the day that is most convenient for you. 

If you’re in a hurry, consider getting an expedited rate. Our US rate is $1 per mile plus an additional $900 for the handling fee. For Canada and Alaska, the rate is $1.5 per mile plus a handling fee of $1,800. 

This service is ideal for pet owners who want more convenience and privacy for their pets. Those planning to buy pets can also take advantage of this service plus pet fraud protection. With the additional service, there is no need to worry about being scammed. Simply provide us with the payment for the pet and we take care of the rest. 

Central Florida Pet Transport 

For pet owners in central Florida who want to relocate their pets within the area, will only need to pay a one-time fee of $99 plus $1 per mile from door to door. Like the rest of the transport services, your pet will get the same high-quality care by an inexperienced handler. 

Keep in mind though that you need to provide us with proper documentation for hassle-free transport. Submit an original copy of a health certificate along with the photos of the person present at pickup and drop-off. You may also include any restraints or necessary food or bedding for your pets. All relocation services require necessary documents.

Transporting pets with Blue Collar Pet Transport is easy. As soon as you book a relocation service, our team would get in touch to arrange pickup and drop-off of your pet and they will be delivered safely to their destination.

Escorted Air Transport

Book our in-cabin air pet transport service for faster transport of pets under 20 pounds. We have no breed restrictions for this service and your pet will never be put in the cargo. 

The cost is between $1,600 to $2,500 for all 48 US states. For Alaska, Puerto Rico and Hawaii, the cost is between $2,500 to $7,500. The final cost is subject to any additional fees from the airline. 

Everything will be provided for your pet including USDA approved kennels, water, bedding, disposable litter pans, pet insurance and exercise breaks.
