H owever, before you run off down to your local travel agent and book ti ckets for the whole family to that exotic seaside tropical location yo u have always wanted to visit but h ave to put off because everyone els e at home didn_t want to leave Fido in the kennel, you might want to c onsider getting you and your family some travel insurance _ including that all important travel pet insurance. A number of leading pet insurance p roviders now offer pet owners trave l pet insurance to give pet owners the comfort of knowing whether they are far away in exotic places enjo ying the sun and sea or closer to h ome enjoying the cultural delights of Europe, their pet will be insure d against any illness or mishap tha t may unfortunately befall them. Typically, included in the travel pe t insurance is: - x-rays - injections - lab tests - prescriptions - costs while they stay at the vet a nd recuperate Keep in mind, however, that as with other types of insurance, travel p et insurance usually comes with wha t is known as an excess. In short, what this means is that you _ as t he owner if the pet _ will be requi red to pay a certain amount until a threshold amount is reached. Ther eafter you can claim for a reimburs ement against the insurance provide r.

Moreover, as with human travel insu rance policies, pet travel insuranc e can be purchased either as annual policy or as a one-off travel poli cy. If you get an annual pet trave l policy, this means you can take y our pet with you whenever you trave l one of the 25+ countries outside of the UK which the UK government c urrently has arrangements for the _ passport for pets_ scheme, or any o f the European Union countries (whi ch are all part of the _passport fo r pets_ scheme already). Alternati vely, with one-off pet travel insur ance policies you need to name the country you are going to visit and the dates you_ll be there and the p olicy will only cover you for the d uration and place stated.
