MORE and more Spaniards want to take their pets on holiday with them – in fact, one hotel booking site says nearly three in 10 searches relate to accommodation where animals are allowed.

Half of all homes in Spain have at least one pet – around 16.1 million animals in total, of whom 5.5 million are dogs and four million are cats.

And according to SelectaHotels, the two most sought-after factors when Spaniards look to go on holiday are swimming pools or jacuzzis, and pet- and family-friendly accommodation.

Overall, 28.59% of searchers want hotels or apartments their animals can stay with them in.

This is more than twice as many as holidaymakers seeking an indoor swimming pool (13.11%) or jacuzzi (12.2%), and nearly three times as many as those who want accommodation with an on-site spa (9.77%).

Very few are bothered about their hotel or holiday complex having a gym (just 0.66%) or a babysitting service (0.55%).

Figures released by another holiday booking site, HomeAway, say 28% of searchers wanted to travel with their pets, showing the number across the board is fairly consistent on the whole.

In fact, 31% of those interviewed said they would not be able to enjoy their holiday unless their animals came with them – and 32% decide their trip destination based almost entirely upon facilities for pets.
