We have just bought a house in Sotira and would like to come over for longer periods but have 2 small dogs and would like to bring them with us when we do a longer stay. We normally fly from Heathrow. Does anyone know approx. cost involved and how easy is it?
Any info would be appreciated.

Do I understand the dogs would fly between the UK and CY? It would cost you nearly 1000/per trip from CY to UK for 2 dogs.

We are researching bringing a labrador and a cat from the UK to Cyprus. Received a lot of misleading information from people in the industry that should have known better. The most likely choice for us will be Aegean from Heathrow and prices are not too bad if you travel on the same flight. For a dog and cage over 25kg it's 150 euro.
If you send them by cargo without you flying then very expensive.

We wanted to use Thomas Cook as they take pets and we were told that we could fly from Bristol. After a lot of checks and being told by the helpline at Bristol Airport and an export agent that we could use Bristol we found out they have no ground agents to process pets. They can fly into Bristol though.

I believe that TC from Gatwick is an option also.

BA will fly dogs from heathrow. brought 4 cats & 3 dogs for just under 4000 but didnt get a breakdown for each animal
Will be more expensive the first time as will have to buy the travel crates, and get rabies jabs & passports. but after that only need rabies done once a year & the fit to fly cerificate & worm flea tick treatment from vet just before each flight.

Well I have booked with Aegean to bring our labrador and cat to Larnaca from Heathrow. I simply booked my wife and I on the flight online as usual.
I phoned Aegean prior to booking and they said just bring the animals in their cages to T2 with all their documents and pay for them then. 150 euros for the lab and 85 for the cat. They did say they cannot bring animals into Heathrow only send.
Just have to reserve their place once I know the total weights of pet and crate.

Contact Anne Parson on 00357 96877424 - Annies Animal Ark

Anne can fly dogs out from the UK and back for you.

Aegean are good for coming from the UK - but you can't fly the dogs back direct to the UK from Larnaca. They usually go back via Paris and then the tunnel back into the UK which you also have to book the dogs onto.

Good luck

we used an agency transfur or something like that. went with them as brought 3 dogs & 4 cats & all seemed very confusing. cost just under 4000 for all 7. was collected from house taken to heathrow for flight.
not likely will ever move them again but would be a lot cheaper as know what to do now plus have the crates.
as said rabies jab only once a year so think only need vet check fit to fly & flea, tick & worm to return to uk.

We were worried about it all but went suprisingly smoothly & all arrived looking happy just glad to be let out

Well we arrived early hours this morning with 3 labradors and a very pi55ed off cat. No real issues but a couple of points to note.
At Heathrow we took the dogs into the terminal on leads as not practical to take 4 loaded crates into the terminal. The rules say no uncrated dogs but nobody seemed to mind.
Do not cable tie the crate doors until the last minute as the animals have to be removed from the crates for security inspection.
At Larnaca the crates arrived on large baggage trollies and we were told that these could not be removed from the baggage hall and the dogs were not to be removed from their crates. When I asked how we could get out of the airport I got the Cyprus shrug. When we saw another traveller walking around with her dog on a lead we did the same and again nobody gave a monkeys.
Overall not a bad experience and a smidge under 500 for 3 dogs and a cat.
The cat is hiding behind the settee and not pleased at all. The dogs think it's great.
Paul.
