Local & Long Distance Journeys

Pet Transportation by Train


There are various modes to travel with your pet. Depending on your destination, one mode of transport may be preferable to another. For instance, while road travel might be suitable when visiting a neighbouring city, it is not practical when moving across the length of the country. Similarly, over longer distances domestically & internationally, air travel is preferred due to its relatively short travel times and security.

There are, however, some places which are inaccessible by direct flights, and too far to commute to via roadways. The solution? Railways. Rail transport takes longer than travelling by air does, but also costs significantly less than an air journey. The only drawback is travel time, but that is to be expected. The upside is trains often operate through remote corridors of the country, places where direct air or road transportation is hard to come by.

How can I relocate via Indian Railways?

To relocate your pet via railways, you need to book a compartment for them. Indian Railways only allows pet parents to travel with their pets in a first-class A/C coach. You will need to visit a station master and book an entire compartment for the two (or more) of you. As a rule, you should always accompany your pet while travelling in a carriage as their owner. if you are unable to, ensure that someone you trust can do this in your absence. This is a plus point for journeys via railways,

Why Should I Use Train Travel?

Pet transportation by train is an excellent alternative to roadways or airways. Railways are economical, comfortable, and have minimal documentation requirements. You only need a health certificate to travel with your pet on a train, whereas you need a host of documents to travel with them via air. Since some pet parents are anxious about being separated from their pet for extended periods, it is a good option that allows you to stay alongside your pet. It is also a viable option for elderly pets, who require a gentler travel experience. If your priority is comfort instead of speed, choose rail transport.
