Pet Insurance When You’re Traveling
Do you travel with your dog or cat when RVing? Is your pet more than a companion? Is he or she a member of your family? You’re not alone. Most of the 8 million RVers, according to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, bring pets along on trips.
If this includes you, great news! Pet injury coverage from Progressive protects your furry four-legged friends in the event of an accident.
In the past, RV insurance policies cover the people … but not the pets … inside RVs. Not any more. Progressive offers free pet injury coverage with collision and comprehensive coverage and pays up to $500 if your dog or cat is hurt or dies because of a crash, fire or flood.
“RVing is more fun when the entire family, including pets, is along for the ride,” said Cathy Pelfrey of Progressive. “This coverage gives pet owners something no other RV insurer offers – peace of mind from knowing that their dogs and cats are protected, too.”
Progressive was the first insurer to introduce pet injury protection to its car insurance customers.
Keeping Fido safe on the road
Pet owners spend a whopping $40 billion on their furry friends each year. That’s enough to buy a gallon of gas for every man, woman and child in the United States … 44 times.
Insurance companies haven’t always viewed pets with the same passion as their owners. If you’re in an accident, generally everyone in the car – except your four-legged friend – is covered.
The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies now recognizes Fido and Fifi as family members. A Progressive policy with Collision coverage now extends to cats and dogs. The coverage pays up to $500 if your dog or cat is hurt or dies as a result of a car accident.
And, best of all, the coverage is free.
“We know how much our customers love their dogs and cats. Many of us have pets, too, and we feel the same way,” said Geoff Souser of Progressive. “Progressive has a long history of product and service innovations that prove you can teach an old dog new tricks. Knowing that most people think of their pets as family members, it felt like the right thing to do.”
Progressive’s pet injury coverage is available in most states. To find out more, contact an independent agent or broker.
