After exclusive pet hotels, restaurants, daycare or salons, the next phase in the lucrative and fast growing pet market in China are pet-inclusive vacations.
Tour operators are tapping the pet owner market by offering vacation packages adapted to bring their pets along the whole way.
Pet travel company, iBabyGO, has already been offering pet-inclusive charter flights from Shanghai to Hainan island since May. A round-trip economy class ticket for the trip costs about 4,500 yuan (USD 700) per pet, allocating them a seat in the cabin.
