What's included in your Pet Sitting Insurance policy?

Our Pet Business Insurance policies include the following benefits as standard:

Public Liability

Your choice of between £1 million and £10 million worth of cover in case of injury or damage to a third party or their property caused by your business’s actions or by an animal in your care.

Key Cover

In the event that you lose a client’s keys, you are covered up to £10,000 for new keys, replacement locks, the cost of re-setting intruder alarms and associated call-out costs.

Care, Custody & Control

Up to £50,000 worth of cover is provided for the animals in your care (up to £25,000 per animal) in the instance of accidental loss, injury, illness or death of that animal in your care, custody or control of that of any of your staff.

Close Family Extension

Your close family members are included under your policy as standard. Therefore, if you employ your husband, wife, son, daughter or any other close family, you do not need to take out Employers’ Liability.

Non-Negligent Cover

Similar to the Care, Custody and Control benefit, you are also covered for accidental loss, injury, illness or death to an animal in your care during the course of service delivery through no fault of your business.

Equipment Cover

As standard, we provide £250 worth of cover for your equipment against theft, loss and accidental damage, free of charge. You can increase the protection of your items up to the value of £30,000.
