Pet owners – check your home insurance

Do you have pets? If so, is your home sufficiently insured against potential damage?

It’s not just pet insurance you need to think about, as a survey has highlighted a common misconception that destruction caused by pets will always be covered by home insurance1. In reality, it depends on the details of your specific policy – accidental damage cover and pet damage cover is not always included, so you may need to take out an additional layer of insurance.

 

Don’t be fooled into thinking it won’t happen to you, as one in four Brits said their home has been damaged by a pet, costing the homeowner between £500-£1000.

As with all insurance policies, conditions and exclusions will apply
