Pets travelling on the Eurostar

51 Signatures Goal: 100

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION ASKING EUROSTAR TO RECONSIDER THEIR POLICY TOWARDS THE CARRIAGE OF PETS. WE WILL PRESENT IT TO EUROSTAR'S CHIEF EXECUTIVE. The Pet Travel Scheme has been in place since February 2000 and over 500,000 pet dogs and cats have successfully entered or left the UK by air, sea and the Shuttle (the drive-on train from Folkstone to Calais) which is part of Eurotunnel and which strongly supported the Pet Travel Scheme from the start. But Eurostar (the passenger train from St.Pancras to the Continent)who effectively control the sole link between trains in the UK and the rest of Europe, still refuses to carry pet dogs and cats even though pet owners are willing to pay for this service and to comply with any pre-booking system imposed. Eurostar discriminates against non-driving pet-owners by denying access to the French and the wider European rail networks. In the present age of growing freedom of movement, with increasing emphasis on rail travel, this restriction is no longer acceptable.

    Everything else about life in Europe with your pet is terribly civilized. Please consider giving a significant group of potential customers an excellent reason to use Eurostar. Perhaps travel could be restricted to certain hours or days etc

    One day I will explose myself near Standford bridge ... If the discrimination of pets follow the Eurostar rules...
    We are talking about train who link Paris to London, not Kaboul to Ryad...

    A pet in a case can be taken on the Thalys to Brussels, overnigiht trains to Italy and elsewhere, in France, in the UK, virtually everywhere except for the Eurostar. Given that the UK lifted quarantines some time ago, the Eurostar policy is inexplicable, and will certainly force many of us, reluctantly, to take a plane in order to be able to bring our pets with us to the UK on holiday.
