Default Getting a cat from the uk to the caribbean / US

Has anyone done this?

I want to take an adolescent cat from the uk to Grenada in the caribbean. The caribbean end isnt an issue, i can fly BA or Virgin direct from Gatwick, the questions are really around the draconian uk or eu?

Approx how much does it cost?

Which company have you used to arrange it?

Any complications or issues you are aware of?

I did hear that if i fly from france it might be much simpler, but i would end up flying via jfk i guess which would i suspect complicate matters though i also hear animals on us flights are very cheap/easy??

Since Grenada is a sovereign country and not part of the US... I have to wonder why you're asking the question here? I see you've already gotten some responses to a similar question posted in the Caribbean forum.

Its here for a reason - In that forum they said ask here, its really questions about the uk end - process - good agents - costs - there are some choices avoiding the uk that people might have used - the uk is very tight on this - and very few people take pets to gda - whereas tthe us...

Grenafa arrival is well understood and not an issue, hundreds of dogs fly in annually as we have a big american vets school...

We don't usually allow duplicate threads as they become confusing...therefore I will close the thread in the Carabbean forum.

If you fly a cat out of the UK it must go in the hold. Fly from France, other EU countries...the airline may allow you to transport it in the cabin.

I'm hearing about 2000 as a cost, anyone have any recommendations as to agents or lower [ouchie] estimates on cost?

As I posted earlier...fly from an EU country using an airline which allows small pets in the cabin. If flying via the US...most US airlines allow small animals in the cabin (with certain restrictions)...check with the airline. Also check if there are restrictions taking cats into Grenada. Much cheaper than transporting the cat in the hold.
