Recent changes to the UK_s quaranti
ne laws mean that it is now possibl
e for you to obtain a pet passport
(under the government_s _passport f
or pets_ scheme) and take your fami
ly pet away with you on holiday. 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. However, unlike humans, travel
pet insurance premiums are usually
calculated on the type of animal yo
u have and the age of the animal.
As such, it is possible to leave ar
ranging the travel pet insurance po
licy until the last minute, then pu
rchasing this online once you have
decided that you will definitely be
 taking your family pet away with y
ou on your family holidays!

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.
