Sometimes referred to as “bundling your insurance policies” combining home and pet insurance can save you thousands of dollars as many of the big insurance companies want long term customers who will stay with them year after year and they are able to offer a more competitive price to customers who buy more than one insurance policy from there company at a time. The same is true if you also buy your car, life and medical insurance from the same company – the more you buy the bigger discounts you will be offered!
For dog owners however you need to be aware that many insurers will not cover a dog that is listed as a dangerous dog breed this is because dog bites cost the insurance industry almost 500million dollars in claims. Recently some homeowners have been refused any home owner insurance if their pet is classed as a dangerous breed.
