A study of 2,000 animal owners who travel found this has become the norm for almost three quarters (74 per cent) when booking a trip.
It also emerged 28 per cent of those who go away with their pet do so to prevent their furry friend getting lonely.
While 36 per cent don’t like the idea of kennels or a cattery, 27 per cent would miss them too much and 30 per cent reckon their pets love getting away.
A fifth of those who consider their animal in all holiday decisions say part the reason they got a pet was so they could go away together.
Dogs emerged as the most popular pet to take away, but a third (34 per cent) admit to taking their cat, while six per cent had even taken their hamster or bird.
A spokesperson for Original Cottages, which commissioned the research, said: “Anyone with a pet will tell you – they’re part of the family.
“And who would want to leave a family member behind when going on holiday?
“Pet owners are really considering how best to travel with their pets, and a staycation offers simplicity and ease without compromising on the fun.”
