Quest Apartment Hotels now offer pet-friendly rooms at 30 properties nationwide to cater for our furry friends. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, you can stay with your pet in Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Perth, and more.
The campaign responds to the COVID surge in pet ownership, with an estimated 30.4 million pets across the country. Nationally, 69% of households now own a pet, up from 61% only two years ago (1), and over a million dogs have become part of Australian households since 2019.
Quest’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jeff Baars, says the company has seen a demand for pet-friendly accommodation alongside the adoption rate.
“Over the past 18 months there’s been a clear and consistent increase in demand for pet-friendly accommodation”, Mr Baars said.
Our mission at Quest is to make the guest experience effortless, so we have taken these insights on board, listened to our customers and are rolling out the Paw-fect Travellers offering at 30 locations nationally, with even more hotels set to jump on board over the coming months.
The primary reason people own a pet is companionship, and what we also know from listening to customers is that travel can sometimes be a little lonely, particularly for corporates who spend a lot of time on the road, so we hope the offering will make our guests feel even more comfortable and connected when they’re with us”.
The pet-friendly rooms provide pet beds, food and water bowls, toys, and other essentials to make your stay a comfortable one.
A small fee starting from $15.00 per night per pet applies. Charges vary depending on the length of stay. A minimum security deposit/bond of $250.00 per pet also applies. Conditions apply.
To celebrate the launch of the Paw-fect Travellers campaign, Quest has partnered with digital artist Oh Barney and pet accessory brand St Argo, giving three people the chance to win a weekend away at Quest, a bespoke pet portrait, leash, and collar.
