Recent reports showed that 46% of Brits are planning to take their annual summer holiday in the UK this year, and now it seems that 25% of pet owners are set to do the same - so that they can take their pet along too!
However, if you’re an animal lover who’s heading abroad and would love to be able to take your pet along too, a PETS passport combined with a good insurance policy makes it possible.
To make sure you and your pet are covered for every eventuality, whether at home or abroad, shop around for the best deals. Tesco Finance is currently offering additional overseas cover with benefits including:
• Cover for loss of your pet’s passport
• Help towards quarantine costs if your pet falls ill while away
• Holiday cancellation cover if your pet is taken ill and can’t travel
In order to cut the risk of any unfortunate incidents regarding your pet whilst away from home, make sure you undergo adequate preparation before travelling. Ensuring your pet’s vaccination is up to date is very important, while getting your pet micro-chipped can give you peace of mind. Pets should also be treated against ticks and tapeworm, as well as having blood tests. Like human travellers, pets need to have an up to date, valid PETS passport so check before you leave!
