After being separated from our two cats, Maki and Yuki for over 9 months due to COVID-related travel restrictions, we were reunited in December 2020, in large part thanks to Valérie and Nice Pet Travel.

Valérie and Nice Pet Travel were recommended to us by someone who had found themselves in the same situation as us (living in Vietnam with their pets stuck in Europe) and they did not disappoint. After weeks of trials and tribulations (flights canceled at the last minute, airlines being anything but helpful, etc.) we finally got our cats back and, unlike traumatizing previous travel experiences, they arrived calm and composed. We have to thank Nice Pet Travel for this. Their patience and love for animals showed all the way and made the trip and the wait worth it!

I can’t recommend them enough if you find yourself having to relocate pets across the world!

Kitty Susan Arthur

In moving from France to London our veterinaire, suggested we contact Valerie Gruslin from Nice Pet Travel to assist with moving our six year-old cat, ‘Kitty’.

Valerie was fantastic advising us of the least stressful way of moving Kitty, required paperwork / certificates, specifications of the carrier box, collection in France by animal taxi (for Kitty’s journey to Nice Airport) and putting us in contact with a UK provider that collected her from the Heathrow and delivered her safely to us in London.

I would highly recommend Valerie and her Team at Nice Pet Travel for their thoroughly professional, kind and caring approach to moving any much loved pet or pets.

Nice to London

Spitz Gallon JamesI want to thank you Valerie and Nice Pet Travel for all of your help transporting my two dogs to Dubai. I was petrified about the dogs travelling in cargo after reading numerous horror stories online but SkyCargo told me that the person they trusted the most was you and it is clear why! Communication was quick and clear (even at 1am) and what I had been told was a painful documentation process was made simple and easy. The dogs arrived happy and calm and felt at home within minutes. Thank you again and I will most definitely be in touch when it is time for the dogs to head back to France.

Over the years we have travelled easily within Europe with our cat, but with our relocation to the United Arab Emirates from France I looked for assistance, especially as we had to leave the cat behind for a couple of months. Valerie helped us every step of the way. Her prompt and efficient replies to emails or calls left us feeling assured our cat was in good hands. Due to her experience she foresees issues and needs so arrangements need not be stressful. She helped us with vaccinations, vet visits and paperwork in France as well as governmental import paperwork in the UAE.

I am so happy that we found Valerie to assist us as the transportation could not have gone better. I have already recommended her to friends who are currently using her services and I will continue to do so. Thank you Valerie

Fendi Melbourne

We brought are dog from Iran to France in order to send him to Australia. We didn’t know how to send him there and therefore we found a lady called ‘Valerie Gruslin’ who assured us about her services and said she would take care of everything and we didn’t have to worry. We handed our dog to her and received him in Melbourne. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. Valerie was very attentive and quick to respond. We would definitely use her services again and highly recommend her to our friends and anyone who wants to travel with their pet.   Yvette & Ash


Anne-Marie Holmes dogsWe have been traveling every year with our dogs from South Africa to Nice since 2006.   Initially I was very stressed and concerned that they would arrive safely but Valerie  has always been fantastic and made sure that all their travel plans went smoothly – despite problems with some Airlines.

Valerie is totally professional and such a caring person and has become a friend to me and the dogs and I have no hesitation in recommending her to look after your pets travel arrangements.

CJ  and Toffee and previously Sidley were always cleared through customs in Nice by Valerie and she also arranged their travel back to South Africa.

Thank you Valerie for making it possible for them to travel with us every year.
