What is pet travel insurance?

Pet travel insurance covers your pet while they’re abroad. If they need treatment from a vet, go missing, or their illness impacts your holiday plans, pet travel insurance can help compensate you financially.

To find the best travel insurance policy for your pet, work out:

  • what cover you need

  • how often you’re likely to take your pet abroad

  • if your pet is already covered 

Decide what to cover

Pet travel insurance can cover several costs that may arise overseas. These include:

  • Vet fees if your pet becomes ill or injured abroad

  • Theft or loss if your pet is stolen or strays. Your insurer can also contribute towards advertising and reward costs to help find your pet

  • Holiday cancellation if you cancel or cut your trip short because your pet has died or needs urgent treatment

Your quote should outline what's covered, so check this carefully to make sure the cover you need is included.

How to insure your pet to travel abroad

Consider how often you go abroad

Knowing how many times you're likely to take your pet abroad can help you find the correct type of policy:

  • Single-trip policies cover your pet for one trip up to a specified maximum length, such as 30 days

  • Multi-trip policies cover your pet for several trips throughout the year

Check if your pet is already covered

If you already have pet insurance, travel cover may be included in your policy. Check your policy or contact your insurer to avoid potentially paying extra for cover you already have.

Look out for any exclusions, including:

  • your pet’s age

  • pre-existing conditions

  • holidays over a certain length

  • travel to certain countries

Check that you can afford any excess if you decide to make a claim, otherwise your claim may be rejected.
