Red Roof® And GoPetFriendly Partner To Make Traveling With Pets Easier This Summer

COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 1, 2021 -- In the past year, deep bonds were forged across the country with a record number of pets being adopted and more time spent safely at home with four-legged family members than ever before. Now, as the country emerges to explore once again, Americans are packing up and bringing their pets along for all that the summer has to offer. 

Red Roof®, the leader in economy lodging, has teamed up with GoPetFriendly, a leading pet travel website, to support guests who want to travel with their furry family members. Red Roof is offering 15% off* rates at more than 600 pet-friendly Red Roof locations across the country when guests book through GoPetFriendly and GoPetFriendly is making it easy to locate Red Roof's pet-friendly locations and nearby pet-perfect activities through their easy-to-use search platform. Red Roof and GoPetFriendly hope that by working together they can help pet owners save money and avoid the anxiety people face when looking for pet-friendly travel options.

"With hundreds of pet-friendly locations across the country, our hotels have always been a reliable choice for families with pets," says Marina MacDonald, Chief Marketing Officer at Red Roof. "Many travelers are eager to start planning their next getaway. This partnership with GoPetFriendly will take the guess work out of travel for pet owners – helping them to locate a lot more than just pet-friendly accommodations for their great American road trip."

GoPetFriendly is a free-to-use website with listings for pet-friendly restaurants, beaches, dog parks, attractions and more throughout the U.S. and Canada. The site makes planning pet-friendly trips a breeze with a trip planner that allows users to map their route and locate pet-friendly places along the way, including Red Roof's locations where pets stay free. The founder of GoPetFriendly, Amy Burkert, has been traveling full-time with her husband and their dogs for more than eleven years and shares tips and destination advice on the GoPetFriendly blog. 

"We didn't expect to adopt a dog last year, but when a stray wandered into the RV park where we were staying, we ended up with our own pandemic puppy. The joy he's brought us is beyond imagination, and working with Red Roof gives us the opportunity to support more pet lovers as they embark on adventures with their pets," says Amy Burkert, founder of GoPetFriendly.
