Hi we was with Pet Plan for many years not realizing that Charlie the greyhound was not covered overseas, now we are with Tescos.

Might be worth a look.

Best of luck and enjoy your tour.

I am with NFU on a lifetime plan and it's £42 a month for my 2 Great Danes with full Euro cover (not sure about time limit though)

They have better medical insurance than me:Doh::RollEyes:

I had pet insurance with tesco and was going abroad for a couple of months so phoned tesco to ask if their insurance would be valid. The answer I got was that it would not be valid so I cancelled the policy.

Never bothered with it myself.
Personally, i think these policies are a complete rip off written by cold hearted people whose only concern is money and who know EXACTLY how to play on peoples fears!
Im not in the slightest bit wealthy, both ffi and I work but only earn "average" salaries. Even so, bottom line for us, if Doug (Dougal - our Persian) needs it, he gets it! Period!
I'd rather pay through the nose to a local (French?) vet and have to eat bread and water than pay for one of these policies.

Since 2008 after caravanning for 20 years
When I got my last dog I asked the Vet about pet insurance, his answer was as follows:-

"Could you afford a couple of hundred pounds for treatment - Yes

Could you get your hands on a couple of thousand if required - Yes

Then don't bother with insurance"

So I didn't bother
