Looking after a pet can be costly as animals can be susceptible to illness and injury
(PRWEB UK) 19 February 2013
People are more likely to claim on pet insurance than on their car, home, or travel insurance, reports a Which? survey.
The consumer publication surveyed members who had submitted insurance claims in the past two years. Four in ten pet insurance owners had made a claim in that period, the highest proportion of all the general insurance categories. Car insurance followed at 20%, then home insurance at 18% and travel insurance at 15%.
Pet illness was the most common reason to make a claim, with 70% of pet insurance claims accounting for this. The most common claim for travel insurance was cancelled travel, accounting for 33% and accidental damage was the most commonly made home insurance claim at 28%.
