Izabela Tarasewicz started this petition to Eurostar Press Office

In January 2020 my partner and I gained a new family member, Pongo!


We didn't realize how difficult it would be to travel to mainland Europe and back to the UK without a car.


After doing a lot of research we've discovered that there are very limited options to enter the UK with your pet: cargo or the hold on a plane (a lot of stress to the animal), kennels on board a ferry from Holland (6 hours journey in a cage), pet cabins on a ferry Amsterdam - Newcastle (16 hours journey) and taxi via Eurotunnel (£120 plus cost of the ticket).


All the above options are not only expensive and less than ideal for the environment but you also have to part with your beloved pet if you choose to fly or take a shorter ferry.


We find it very bizarre that you can travel by train within the UK and mainland Europe with a dog but you cannot take Eurostar.


After sending an enquiry to Eurostar, we received the answer that due to “very small demand” they will not look into changing their policy.


Let's show them that the demand is there and that in the 21st century when the climate change is such a big issue, we should have the option to travel by train with our beloved pets!


Please spread the word and help us change the minds of Eurostar management! Together we can make an impact!
