Many people these days are bringing a pet when travelling south for the winter. Having your best friend with you can make a long trip much more enjoyable. Plus, you wouldn’t want your precious pooch freezing his tail off or cooped up inside while you’re living it up in the great outdoors in beautiful weather. If you or anyone you know brings a dog or even a cat to their destination you should ask the question: Does your travel insurance include pet return coverage?
You may face a situation where you are not able to take care of your pet because of a medical emergency. Pet return coverage can provide pet owners who travel with a bit of peace of mind knowing their pets will be taken care of and returned safely should you require medical evacuation at your destination.
Not all policies contain a provision that pays for your pet’s safe return home in the event that something happens to you. It’s an added benefit that many people don’t know about, so if you’re shopping for travel insurance, ask about the pet return benefit before you buy. If you’ve already purchased your insurance, check out your policy wording to find out if a pet return benefit is included.
