Animal Friends Insurance are launching a new range of pet insurance policies on 6th May 2009

Great news for those of you with pets. Animal Friends Insurance will launch a new range of pet insurance policies on 6th May 2009. Starting at just £3.27 per month for a dog the policies will give Affiliates much greater chances of conversion and therefore income generation. Cheaper premiums right across the board will now also be available for customers choosing a higher excess option.

Animal Friends, the UK pet insurer that donates its net profits to support animal charities worldwide, will now offer perhaps the widest range of pet insurance options currently available in the UK - and the most comprehensive.

The policies on offer will include full lifetime cover - giving up to a staggering £40,000 per condition for life - to a unique entry level product, an Accident Only Policy, which starts at just £3.27 per month for dogs.

All new polices - save for Accident Only - will also now include Free Overseas Travel Cover as standard, allowing up to £2000 emergency vets fees cover in EU countries for those who take their pets with them on holiday.

Animal Friends will offer 7 different policy options ensuring there is a product for every pocket and need. To further help pet owners in difficult financial times Animal Friends will offer two choices of vet fee Excess - £49 or £99 - giving customers a further chance of reducing premiums by selecting the higher Excess.

As before, Animal Friends will continue to insure pets at any age, so even older pets can be insured for the first time with premiums being kept low by a method of co-insurance which makes things fair for those who find they don't have to claim.

Animal Friends is different to many other pet insurance companies.Animal Friends is an ethical insurance business that has dedicated its net profits to the care of animals and their environment. Our aim is that:- By working with good charities and supporting worthy animal welfare projects worldwide Animal Friends will help improve the lives of animals; combat animal abuse and cruelty; assist in the protection of rare and endangered species; help conserve unique and vital habitats for the benefit of animals and humans alike and assist local communities to protect and value their heritage; By leading the way with a new business ethic we shall persuade others within the commercial sector to do more to help their communities and/or other causes deserving of care.

Animal Friends was the idea of businesswoman and long term animal lover Elaine Fairfax. Elaine had been brought up in an animal loving family and her grandfather had even received a medal from the RSPCA at the turn of the 20th century for stopping someone beating a horse. Elaine had worked closely with many animal charities in her business life but she wanted to do more to help animals so she decided to use her business skills to raise substantial funds for animal charities through something people need anyway - pet insurance - rather than competing with others for charitable donations. Thus the unique concept of Animal Friends Insurance was born...

For her foresight and dedication Elaine was named the 2005 NatWest everywoman Businesswoman of the Year, a prestigious and highly competitive Award given also to acknowledge the fast growth of Animal Friends Insurance which, in a few short years, has become the largest independent pet insurance provider in the UK.
