A current trend in European tourism is that of pet-friendly tourism, by which is normally meant dogs. As there are many people who don't like leaving their pets in order to go on holiday, more and more destinations are coming round to the idea of offering special packages that include pets. Every aspect of a trip - hotel, plane, activities, excursions - is designed with the pet in mind.
