This is just a quick post to highlight a recent change in Allegiant’s pet policy. In another post, I’ve mentioned the problem you sometimes run into when you make your plane reservation on-line: If you’re not able to add your pet to your reservation on-line (and most airlines don’t yet allow you to do that), you run the risk of calling to add your pet to your reservation and learning that all the spaces for in-cabin pets on your flight are already taken. If you call to make your reservation, however, you may pay an extra fee, and potentially forego mile awards for booking on-line.
Airlines handle the problem in different ways, but Allegiant’s policy now says: “To book a reservation with a pet, please contact the Allegiant Reservation Center and use option 1 and tell the agent you are booking with a pet. The per segment Booking Fees will be waived.”
