2018 set to be the biggest year for pet travel - Marcel Le Corgi offers his ‘ruff’ guide

Posted on Wednesday, 4th April 2018 - 8:31am in Articles by Lezli

Say Bonjour to Marcel Le Corgi – the five year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi who has more than 70k followers on Instagram, making him the most popular corgi in the UK. 

To say Marcel loves to travel is an understatement, as he has visited more countries than most Brits have, with 11 countries on his belt. 

Marcel is not the only doggy exploring the world, travelling with your pooch has become more popular than ever. New research by Eurotunnel revealed that over two thirds (67%) of UK dog owners plan to go away with their dogs this year with nearly one million pet owners planning to get a pet passport for their dog. 

Taking your pup on holiday can also have numerous health benefits with the vast majority (82%) of UK pet owners saying they feel more relaxed when spending time with their dog. In fact, the research also reveals just how much we miss our animal companions when they are not around. Almost one in five (18%) FaceTime their dogs when they are on holiday without them, with a further 13% admitting that they have a dog cam set up at home so they can interact with their dog when they are away. 

Along with being extremely adorable Marcel Le Corgi is also bilingual, barking in both French and English and loves to spend his time split between the UK and France.  

To mark the start of National Pet Month this April we follow Marcel on a road trip through France, stopping off at his favourite hotspots along the way.

And if you're driving with your dog to France this year, you can make your own doggie roadtrip with our pawtastic Driving with Dogs walks and lovely places to stop off the autoroutes in France.

Bon voyage!


With nearly 200 walks from the Driving with Dogs website, this handy little book is an ideal guide to the best dog-friendly pubs and dog walks within 5 miles of UK motorway exits.

Like the website walks, you'll also find information about campervan access, disabled facilities, kids' activities, safe parking places, sat-nav codes and written route directions too.

Walking the Dog: Motorway Walks for dogs and drivers is available from the RAC shop (link URL and all the usual online bookstores such as amazon.

If your local bookstore doesn't have a copy in stock, you can order by quoting the ISBN number: 978-1-845841-02-7
