The Definitive Pet Travel Guide

Our office is just a short walk away from the SF SPCA where we’ve got quite a few friends helping dogs and cats find homes here in San Francisco. We were surprised to discover that no one had made a definitive pet travel guide.

So, in the hipmunk spirit, we created one ourselves.

And if you liked this, you’ll love the other infographics we’ve made about baggage fees.

In addition to the infographic below, Florence reminds us that short-nosed dogs are more vulnerable to environmental conditions than other breeds. Hot & humid weather in particular may cause breathing difficulties so really do your homework if you’re traveling in summer with a short-nosed dog and find a safe route if your pup must travel. (More info about this in the sequel infographic, to be focused on pet safety!)


Tip of the hat to Ben Huh for giving me this idea during a chat we had last month. Fun-fact: he is, in fact, allergic to cats.

A Visual History of Baggage Fees [Infographic!]

We’re busy taking the agony out of flight search (and putting the ecstasy into hotel search!) but we got such a great response from publishing the Staggering Look at Baggage Fees Infographic that we asked Shaun to produce another about the history of baggage fees.

A Staggering Look at Baggage Fees [Infographic!]

Has anyone else noticed rising baggage fees over the last few years? We at hipmunk thought we’d take a closer look at this growing nuisance and turned to the fabulous Shaun Sanders, who produced a quite popular wallpaper remixing our mascot into an Internet-famous shark hunting kayaker photo.

We’re hoping for this to be the first of many hipmunk infographics, so be sure to sign up for our mailing list (below) and subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss a single one of them!

Tip of the hat to our own resident Chief Scientist, Dr. Chris Slowe, superfan of Edward Tufte, for helping us get it just right.
