Austrians are among the biggest pet lovers in the world. It’s hard to believe, but the approximately 8.7 million residents of Austria own 1.6 million cats and 750,000 dogs. Keeping a pet isn’t cheap however, as furry friends need to have food, toys, food bowls, leashes etc. – and some people even like to buy Christmas presents for their pets! Pet owners do tend to forget one important thing, however: insurance. After all, when pets are taken along for a ride in cars, they have just as good a chance of getting injured in an accident as people do. The problem is that most car insurance policies do not cover injuries to pets, despite the fact that the cost of treating injured pets can be very high and also lead to financial problems.
Pet passenger insurance in just a few clicks
ERGO pet passenger insurance can be ordered immediately and flexibly online using a smartphone, a tablet or a PC – all it takes is a few clicks to get to the ERGO website and sign up for a policy. The policy provides up to 2,500 euros for medical treatment for each pet injured in an accident caused by the policyholder.
ERGO pet passenger insurance only requires a one-time payment that can be made with a Visa or MasterCard, as well as via PayPal or instant bank transfer. Those who obtain pet passenger insurance are not required to have an ERGO motor insurance policy. Policies are available for three weeks or one year and automatically expire when the policy period is up. This makes ERGO pet passenger insurance ideal for holiday trips with the car – to anywhere in Europe as well because coverage extends throughout the continent.
The ERGO pet passenger insurance policy can also be selected as supplemental coverage for the ERGO Sicher Mobil motor insurance tariff.
