The final leg of the Animalcouriers trip from southern Europe was quite slow — as well as the Tour de France being in full swing, several of the pets’ passports had minor errors that needed attention from a vet. We reached Calais in the evening and felt it would be less stressful for the animals to stay there for the night, and cross to the UK the following morning.
Up bright and early, we got to the port to find a security alert in progress. The extra security procedures in place meant it took over four hours to get from the port entrance to our check-in. But we finally made it and reached the UK safe and sound, and the round of happy reunions between pets and their owners began.
