MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, February 09, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Co-operative Insurance has strengthened its customer proposition with the launch of a new, affordable pet insurance product.
The Co-operative Insurance now offers dog and cat owners the peace of mind that if their animal is ill or injured, at home or abroad, their treatment will be covered.
Prices start from GBP10.69 per month for dog cover and GBP6.32 for cat cover with policies bought online benefiting from an additional 15% discount. Pet Insurance from The Co-operative Insurance is provided by Allianz Insurance Plc.
Two types of cover are available:
- The Classic cover option is designed for pet owners looking for essential cover for their pet and pays out up to GBP2,000 for any illness or injury sustained for 12 months after the condition is first identified.
- The Select Plus option offers a more comprehensive insurance where each new illness or injury is covered throughout the pet's life, regardless of age or how long the condition lasts - as long as the policy is renewed each year.
Policyholders have the option to add on optional bundles:
- The Additional Benefits bundle covers a range of eventualities such as holiday cancellation and loss, theft or straying of the pet.
- The Pet Travel bundle covers emergency vet's fees, emergency repatriation and quarantine expenses.
Lee Mooney, Head of Pet Insurance at The Co-operative Insurance, said: "Unfortunately the majority of vets' fees are an unexpected and unplanned for expense which can leave many pet owners extremely worried at what is already a distressing time when their pet is unwell.
"The new product provides an affordable, comprehensive cover with a range of flexible add on bundles so that policyholders are able to tailor the policy to meet individual needs and requirements."
