Home & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy, the home rental platform from Marriott recently partnered with Petco Health + Wellness Company, to develop travel solutions for pets.
Moving forward, the Homes & Villas website will feature “Pet-Friendly Picks by Petco,” which puts a spotlight on vacation destinations that meet the standards for pet safety and wellness set by Petco for both dogs and cats.
The partnership also entails Petco’s curation of a collection of essential items for travelling with pets. The collection features beds, bowls and other travel accessories. Visitors to the Homes & Villa by Marriott Bonvoy website will also benefit from Petco-provided infographics, articles, and packing checklists to help with travelling with a pet.
“For many of our guests, family vacations mean including their four-legged family members, and since the pandemic, we’ve seen ‘Pets Allowed’ rise to become one of the top two most popular filters our guests choose when searching for homes,” said Jennifer Hsieh, Vice President, Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International.
“Our collaboration with an expert like Petco means we will better accommodate guests seeking the space and amenities of a vacation rental that welcomes pets and make travelling with your pet simpler, more rewarding, and memorable.”
“As pets become more and more central to our lives, pet-friendly travel is the natural evolution in humanization and premiumisation in the pet category,” said Jenny Wolski, SVP Omnichannel Experience for Petco. “With pet parents increasingly travelling and exploring the world with their whole family – whether for vacations, work, or a combination of both – collaborating with Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy will create a tailored experience with all the resources, assistance, and supplies needed for worry-free pet travel.”
