Pet insurance from Computer Quote for Cats and Dogs

Denmead, Hampshire (PRWeb UK) May 23, 2009

Hampshire based online insurance broker today announces an addition to its range of personal lines insurance products. In collaboration with Ultimate Pet Partners Limited, Computer Quote now offers Pet insurance for cats and dogs both online and by phone with a special launch discount of 10% off an annual policy if taken out by the end of May.

Pet Insurance is steadily becoming a necessity for many households. In the UK there are currently over 27 million furry, feathery or scaly creatures keeping 43% of the population company. Furthermore, the RSPCA has estimated that in 2009 alone, around 50% of these pets will need veterinary treatment at some point across the course of the year. With budgets tighter than ever and the average treatment costing around £220, some pet owners could be in for a nasty shock.

Richard Lovegrove, Managing Director, said:

"As a nation of pet lovers, many of us dote on our pets. The idea that they could become ill or be involved in an accident that could see them requiring medical treatment can be deeply upsetting. What if we could not afford to pay the expensive vet bills? It doesn't bear thinking about which is why Pet insurance really is such a lifeline to pets and their owners."

Interest Free Instalments

Pet insurance enables owners to seek aid in funding veterinary treatment so that the notoriously hefty bills owners may face are covered by a considerably less expensive annual premium. In fact, Computer Quote Pet Insurance even allows owners to pay for their policy in instalments from as little as £4.20 per month, without any interest fees.

10% Launch Discount

To save owners even more money, throughout May 2009 Computer Quote are offering 10% off all new Pet insurance polices, with four levels of cover depending on your requirements and budget. When your cat or dog requires veterinary assistance Computer Quote Pet Insurance can offer a range of support, including:

    Vet fees up to £5,000 per condition, per year
    Interest free monthly payments
    Advertising and reward money up to £500 should your pet go missing
    Boarding fees in the event of owner hospitalisation
    Claims tracked online and all documents sent by email for convenience
    and much more - see our full list of Pet insurance benefits
