We recently found a couple of Travelex plans with unique benefits for loving pet owners who travel with their cat or dog (or both). If your cat or dog accompanies you on a trip, and becomes ill or is injured on that trip, these plans will pay up to $1,000 in emergency medical treatment. This benefit amount is subject to a $50 deductible.
The benefit amount is an aggregate limit for all pets that accompany you on a covered trip, so the coverage amount applies to all the pets you have along with you.
In addition, and just like the return of minor children, these plans will also return your cat or dog back home if they are left unattended due to your hospitalization. This benefit provides up to $10,000 for transportation expenses only. It does not cover kenneling your pet instead if you are hospitalized.
Next time you want to take your furry friend along on a trip, check out our post on safe vacationing with your pet, and take a look at the Travel Select plan or the Travel Max plan by Travelex to ensure your pet is just as safe on your trip as you are.
