For just £25 (+Insurance Premium Tax) you can add pet damage insurance cover providing you with a safety net of £5,000 worth of damage.
It is important to note that our pet damage policy covers claims made for sudden, unintentional and unexpected physical loss, breakage or damage caused by a domestic pet to the fixtures, fittings and contents provided by the landlords to rented accommodation.
It is not for damage caused by every day wear and tear. For example, if a dog scratches at your door every day this is not covered, while if a pet pulls down curtains that causes damage to a wall this would be covered.

This policy provides protection for the cost of repairing or replacing your landlords’ fixtures and fittings if they have been damaged by your pet. This policy only provides cover for unexpected and unforeseen damage.
