In a declaration, battleface said the brand-new insurance plan are ‘designed specifically to protect pets and their owners while travelling domestically or internationally’.
The insurance provider said that the launch of the policy was available in action to a ‘huge surge’ in pet ownership in the United States in the last few years – with 70 percent of families now owning some type of animal. Alongside this, ‘more and more people are choosing to take their pets with them when they travel’.
battleface will provide pet-related insurance coverage in 2 plans. The initially, Pet Travel Insurance, consists of:
- Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption, consisting of a ‘unique covered reason that allows you to interrupt or cancel a trip in the event your pet becomes critically ill or dies, before or during the trip’
- Pet Medical protection for as much as US$2,000 of veterinary advantages (after a US$100 deductable)
- Pet Return protection, to bring the animal home if the owner ends up being too ill to accompany them home while abroad.
The 2nd package, Pet Damage Protection, covers unexpected damage brought on by both the owner and the animal, to getaway rental houses or hotel spaces – with as much as US$1,500 in protection.
“Working with BringFido to meet this unique industry need has been very rewarding and exciting for the battleface team,” said Sasha Gainullin, CEO of battleface. “One of the many advantages of pet travel insurance is that it can help alleviate the financial burden of unexpected events. Just like individual travel insurance, pet travel insurance can be especially important if your pet falls ill or is injured while you are travelling and you are far from your usual veterinarian. It also helps ease stress and anxiety about bringing your pet to an unfamiliar vacation destination and not knowing how they will react.”
battleface likewise just recently partnered with flight innovation company AirLegit to launch the business’s FlightGuard48 option worldwide.
