Rach-a has indicated that this thread is about Netherlands

Hello,

I'm considering travelling to Europe next year for around 4 - 6 months and my main interest is Holland.

The thing is I have 4 cats - all young etc. none microchipped and I wish to take them in the caravan with me (caravan not yet purchased)! My questions are as follows:-

Does anybody know if I will have any problems travelling to the Netherlands from the Uk with cats?

Will I need my cats registered somewhere or / and microchipped?

Are there a large number of campsites near cities etc. which I can take my caravan and pets?

Thanks,

Rachael :)

Hi there Rachael, perhaps this link will help you out:

I think you''ll find plenty of camping sites where you can bring in your pets.

Please contact me again if you want suggestions for a trip.

Hi Rach - a, don't forget to check the rules for getting back into the UK, if you miss one part your cats could end up in quarantine the websites already listed give all the official information you will need, if you need any other help let me know, I moved from Ireland to Holland last year and of course brought my cat too
