If you are planning to transport your animal by ground or air and want to insure its life in transit, this is short-term coverage to consider.

This is a type of coverage that insures against:

Financial Loss for the established value of an insured animal if it dies during transit (transport).  Coverage is provided according to the needs or classifications that follow

1. Single Trip Transit Insurance is available as a separate policy.  This insurance generally goes into effect when the animal is being loaded and coverage terminates when the animal is unloaded at it final destination.

Two types are available:

Depending upon the age of the animal and other criteria, this type of insurance may be purchased for Full Mortality (Illness, Disease and Accidental death) during the transit period.  But Basic Perils may also be chosen which insures for loss caused by specific accidental causes, which include collision, derailment or overturn of certain conveyances, including loading and unloading.

2. International Air Transportation Insurance is applied by endorsement to an animal already insured under a Full Mortality Policy.  This coverage extends insurance to include international air transport of the animal.

3. Territorial Limits Including Transit Insurance OR European Extension is applied by endorsement to an animal insured under a Full Mortality Policy.  This coverage extends   insurance to include the animal’s stay in specified territories outside the Continental U.S. and Canada.
