Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy and Petco join forces to make traveling with pets safer, easier, and more memorable

With more and more travelers taking their pets with them on vacation, Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott’s premium home rental platform, and Petco Health + Wellness Company, are joining to elevate the vacation experience for pet parents and their furry family members.

The Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy booking website will highlight “Pet-Friendly Picks by Petco” featuring vacation properties that meet Petco’s standards for pet safety, health, and wellness for both dogs and cats among the platform’s more than 80,000 properties.

In addition, Petco will curate a travel collection of essential items for pet travel and safety – including beds, bowls, toys, and travel accessories, which can be shipped to their U.S. rental property. Guests will also be able to access information including infographics, articles, and packing checklists on the Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy website produced by Petco in preparation for traveling with their pets.

With 80 percent of pet parents considering their pet to be part of their family, and at least a third of pet parents estimated to travel with their pets this holiday season rather than leaving them at home1, both dog and cat parents are actively seeking out travel options where they have a reliable, safe, and stress-free environment that is designed with pet-friendly activities and access to supplies they need while traveling.

In the future, Marriott expects to work with Petco on a program for hotels in its portfolio that welcome pets.

Separate from the areas of collaboration between Marriott and Petco, Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy will also begin offering bespoke pet-friendly experiences on Marriott Bonvoy Moments, the experiential platform of Marriott’s award-winning travel program, Marriott Bonvoy. The first in the series will feature a photoshoot at a spectacular Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy property for members and their pets with renowned photographer Shayan Asgharnia, who’s camera has captured Hollywood icons, sports legends, and political and business titans. The Marriott Bonvoy Moments platform enables members to bid points they have earned for once-in-a-lifetime experiences across a broad range of categories from sports, arts and lifestyle, entertainment to culinary.

For those planning holiday travel with or without their pet, for a limited time, Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy is offering 10 percent off select private home rentals. Book today through November 28, 2022, and receive a discount on stays through September 23, 2023. For more information, please visit Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy.
