Petcover New Zealand has unveiled a new range of insurance products specifically designed for exotic pets.

This move signifies a notable expansion for the company, which provides coverage for a wide variety of pets such as cats, dogs, horses, and exotic animals.

Insurance solution for exotic pet owners

“With the launch of our new exotic pet insurance range, we're proud to set a new standard for pet insurance in New Zealand,” said Andrew Pearce, CEO of Petcover Group. “We're confident that our customers will appreciate the peace of mind that comes with choosing Petcover as their insurance provider for all pets, whether they're big, small, furry, feathery, or scaley.”

What to expect from the exotic pet insurance

The newly launched insurance product caters to New Zealanders who own exotic pets that are legally recognised, covering a spectrum that includes birds, reptiles, and small mammals. This initiative provides pet owners with several coverage options, tailored to meet a variety of needs and financial constraints.

The exotic pet insurance plan offers:

  • up to $6,000 coverage for eligible veterinary expenses
  • a maximum of $500 for eligible alternative or complementary treatments, within the veterinary expense limit
  • up to $1 million in third-party liability coverage
  • an option for a multi-pet discount across various policy offerings, with eligibility details available upon request

With this strategic addition to its insurance offerings, Petcover said it aims to meet the diverse needs of pet owners.

“At Petcover Group, we're passionate about providing affordable pet insurance solutions with a variety of added benefits for all kinds of pets,” Pearce said. “But it's not just about the coverage we offer – it's also about the award-winning customer service that comes with it. Our team of experts provide a seamless, stress-free experience for our customers, and we're always here to answer any questions and provide support when you need it most.”

A report released last month highlighted the benefits of pet ownership, with a whopping 95% of pet owners attesting to the positive impacts of their pets on their health and wellbeing.
