Pet-Friendly Timeshare Resorts for Your Holiday Travel

published on December 19, 2012 by

The holidays are about travel and the December RedWeek newsletter focused on one aspect of timeshare vacations – do you take your pet along? Some airlines allow small pet carriers to be taken on-board as carry-on luggage, while others will accommodate pets in the cargo hold.

For some people a vacation without a pet is an excruciating separation from a beloved companion. If you plan to take Fluffy and Fido, be sure your final destination will accommodate them.

RedWeek’s Pet Friendly Timeshare Vacations page offers a list of resorts, like the ones below, that may accept pets.

1. Banff Rocky Mountain Resort (see top photo). Located in one of the most beautiful scenic areas in all of Alberta, Canada, this resort accommodates small pets for an additional daily $25Canadian fee per pet.

The Canadian Rockies are a veritable winter enthusiast’s dream , offering many winter activities such as downhill skiing, cross country skiing, heli-skiing and sleigh rides. The Sulphur Mountain Gondola Lift is one of the area’s many attractions.
