I’ll be moving my two chins from Florida to Maine very soon and I’m really not sure what the best way to do it is. I have a boy and girl in separate cages. I do have carriers for them to ride in during the day. Since it will take a few days to
make it up to Maine, it doesn’t seem fair to leave them in the carriers that long. Does anybody have any suggestions?
 
What I've seen others do is get small fold-able travel cages, so when you stop for the night you can take them out of the carriers and put them in the cages. Something like this for example Folding Cage
Another option is getting a dog playpen you can set up in the hotel room to let them each have some time to stretch their legs, but then put them back in the carriers once you go to bed. Like these Dog Pen

Just another word of advice, since you didn't say with kind of carriers you are using, you'll want metal carriers not plastic or fabric. The hard plastic cat/small dog carriers are normally fine for short trips like to the vet, most chins just sleep during travel, but if stuck in them for hours or days chins can get bored and chew their way out.

Okay thank you! I’ll look into the cages you suggested!

You should consider breaks in pet-friendly hotels, providing larger spaces for exercise. Ensure comfort, limit stress during the trip for your chinchillas.
 
It can be tough when your friends are tied up with their families and responsibilities, leaving you itching to explore new places. But hey, that's what communities like this are for, right? I'm fairly new here myself, but I stumbled upon this forum in search of fellow travel enthusiasts. It's amazing how connecting with like-minded folks can spark new adventures!
