4 South Island Pet Friendly Stays!

Article by PawsPassort. Posted with Permission. 


Trying to organise a holiday that includes your furry family member can be hard!

But there is good news – pet-friendly holiday accommodation options are growing. And with a focus on domestic tourism for the foreseeable future, hopefully, more accommodation providers will begin to offer pet-friendly accommodation.

We want to encourage and support people to take holidays that include your pet or furry family member. To do this we’ve reached out to Pets Can Come Too, a Kiwi organisation listing pet-friendly holiday accommodation options across the country. After looking through their South Island listings, we’ve pulled some together to share with you.

If you’ve ever thought about travelling with your pet in our own backyard, now is the time!
