Please note that each run has a cut off time for bookings prior to the driver departing on each leg of the trip. Bookings placed after the cut off time may incur an additional $25 late booking fee due to last minute or out of office hours work required to ensure that all the details can be arranged, confirmed and notified to the driver in good time.

Booking by the runs cut off time does not guarantee space will be available, some runs and some cage sizes do tend to fill up quicker than others, in some cases up to a week before. Please book as soon as possible to ensure space is available for your pet.
