Does Your Policy Cover Also Cover Your Four Legged Family Members?

Did you see the movie “Marley and Me”? It was a great movie. Marley was a loveable character that really seemed to enjoy riding in his owner’s car. What animal would not want to go for a ride in the car? Have you ever considered if Fido is covered by your auto insurance when he comes along in the car with you?

auto insurance animals Does Your Policy Cover Also Cover Your Four Legged Family Members?Chances are pets are not covered under normal auto insurance policies. After all, animals are not traditional riders in cars. However, it is becoming more and more common for animals to ride in cars. Therefore some companies have added pet coverage as an option to policy holders.

Depending on who your insurance company is, coverage for your pet will vary in cost. Progressive decided recently that they would pay an additional $500 for an animal harmed in an accident. This service they are providing will not cost their customers any additional amount. They will be awarded the $500 as long as they have collision insurance.

If this is not enough coverage for your pet, you do have the option of getting pet insurance from your local vet. It is really up to you. However, it is a good idea to talk with your insurance agent about your options.
