The official Highway Code advice on driving with your cat is to make sure they are restrained so they can’t distract you, get under your feet or hurt themselves if you have to do an emergency stop.

The best way to contain your cat in the car is with a pet carrier or cage. At the RAC we have a range of cat carriers in various sizes that are robust, easy to carry and comfortable for your pet.

Fabric cat carrier

If you are short on storage space then a fabric pet carrier is a great solution. It is lightweight, easy to set up or fold down and a washable cover means your cat will be comfortable and clean while travelling.

Plastic cat carrier

Featuring a hard durable case, a plastic carrier contains a water bowl and can be secured with a seatbelt. This is great if you’re taking your cat on holiday or on a long car journey.
