The pandemic has most certainly changed the way people think about travel. Now, before heading out the door, many first weigh their options on driving vs. flying, check in on their destination's health and safety protocols, and according to Hotels.com, more travelers than ever before are seeking out pet-friendly accommodations too.

As the website explained in a release, Pet Separation Anxiety (PSA) is on the rise as pet owners start to consider travel again. However, rather than leaving their furry buddies behind, pet owners are seeking out places they can bring them along. In fact, searches for pet-friendly hotels on the website increased by 300% in recent months. To accommodate this new way of travel, Hotels.com is launching the search for a team of "Creature Critics" who will help review the world's best pet-friendly hotels so people know exactly where they should go on their next trip.

Pets of all kinds are encouraged to apply.

Hotels.com explained in a statement, in total, it will "hire" three pets and their owners to become a part of the creature crew. Those selected to become members of the Creature Critic team will each receive 10 nights on Hotels.com (valued at $150 per night) to test out the best pet-friendly accommodations.

Pets (and their parents) of all varieties are encouraged to apply for the program as long as they "have a taste for the Hotel Life, have bags of personality, and (most importantly) can fit in a hotel room. Sorry horse girls."

To apply, pet owners can use either Twitter or Instagram. They can then upload a picture of their pet or write a summary telling Hotels.com why they should win on either platform. Then, tag and follow @hotelsdotcom and use the hashtag #CreatureCritics. Entries must be in before Oct. 9, 2020. Check out all the rules for entry here.
