The Necessity of Pet Travel Insurance

Friday, November 26th, 2010

If pet insurance seems frivolous then initially the thought of pet travel insurance can seem ridiculous. But you’d be careless to think that way, traveling is an invitation for chaotic and unforeseen scenarios, and animals tend not to respond very well with these things! If you think you can simply take your pet on vacation every time and not worry about it then perhaps you should read on.

Traveling with your pet is expanding the boundaries of your relationship, often in a way that will be new and confusing to your pet. From the safety of your home your pet Chihuahua might know not to chew up your shoes or pee on the floor, but this is hardly the same thing while traveling abroad. There are 3 reasons why you need pet travel insurance

First of all you have no idea how your pet will react to a different humidity, different weather, different insects and animals and perhaps even different food. There is a myriad of respiratory and stomach problems these different conditions could cause. The point is that it is quite easy for your pet to be ill, and what happens if you have to seek out a vet while traveling? What if you have to take your pet to the vet once you get back for a vaccination or some sort of treatment? You’re already strapped for cash after all of the ordinary vacation expenses.

Secondly, the overwhelming stress your pet is going through can cause it to misbehave. Even if your pet doesn’t misbehave, imagine it vomiting or having diarrhea in your hotel room and having to pay damages. This can add up quickly in any number of ways.

The final point I’ll make is that there may be occasions where you can’t take your pet with you where you’re going. Maybe you’re taking a specific tour that doesn’t allow animals, or planning on eating out at a fancy restaurant. If you need someone to watch over your pet this can be costly to find someone you trust. If you had pet travel insurance you probably could have covered each of these individual problems!

I hope you can see now why it’s important to take another see something you may have originally written off. Pet insurance and pet travel insurance have both been taking off in popularity throughout the last thirty years, and it’s because they are both valuable and necessary.
