I'd go with a Furet plus. They area decent size for a holiday cage and they flatpack which is useful for transportation and storage purposes.

What're they in now? For that few rats people often just take their permanent cage for holidays as you can't viably restrict cage size by much more.

also reduced to £60 on the p@h website at the moment. Not sure if that is that good a price, just noticed it was reduced when eying up the SRS.

yeah its good price, they are in a jenny at the minute, the problem was never size but not all of the cages are easy to assemble and disassemble, this plays a major factor as i also have three kids and two dogs and not too forget me and the other half all in one s-max, a tight squeeze to say the least

Id say a furret plus then. I use mine as a holiday cage, literally takes 5 mins to put up/get down :)
:luck: enjoy your holiday!

personally (and i know most people wont agree with me) but the critter type cages a c2 or 3 as they are3 cheap, flatpack, and a great spare cage for hospital/babies/holidays

Ah yes, I can quite see not wanting to take an old-style Jenny on holiday with you :lol:
I'd agree on the critter cages. They're not the best long-term now with so many other options, but just on a short-term basis they're cheap and they work. A C2 is about the same size as a Savic Freddy, so a bit bigger than a Furet Plus for comparison purposes.

Depends what you're after really, and how important cost is :D
