You can rest assured that this car has has been officially registered with a transportation business number with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

  • In order to reduce stress on our guests during longer rides, we will take them on small walks at places like service areas on the way.
  • The back doors are slide open doors
    perfect for getting in and out and luggage loading and unloading!

  • All seats behind the driver’s seat can all be folded away so even big dogs can ride in style.

  • Rest assured that even from the driver’s seat the cage is in plainsight for keeping an eye on how our little guest is doing.

  • We have two large cages on board, so even those with large fur-families can ride together.
