Good luck finding an airline that will allow you to travel with any animal!
I have tried it and no airline that I could find would allow even a tiny,
little 'pocket' tortoise!

  here in Canada travelling with pets is permitted, but is quite
expensive.  i have a freind the took his dog on plains several times.
you might want to ask if the airline has a heated compartment.

I have already responded to the originator with my opinion on flying with
iguanas. Most major airlines will allow you to fly with a pet, but the pet has
to fly in the luggage compartment. Some airlines have exceptions for small dogs
and cats, who can fly in the passenger compartment in an approved pet carrier.
There were no exceptions for birds or reptiles. I was told that reptiles were
too scary. There was a $50 fee when I flew on American. It is different for
different airlines.

: Good luck finding an airline that will allow you to travel with any animal!

United Airlines allowed me to travel with my 2 cats last Tksgiving.  I
paid $50 each way, each cat + vet certification that they had their shots.

I will tell you that even with tranquilizers, it was possibly the worst
days of my cats lives.  It was cold for them for short periods of time
travelling between terminals, out to buses, cars, etc.  I wasn't concerned
about the cold with them.  But for the trip I took, EVEN IF I was able to
heat my iguana's cage on the plane, the trip was FAR too stressful for him
to have been able to make it.  Too many noises...too cold...too many small
crying children...too much jostling around...

I'd go with  the RV.
