Can I keep my pet’s coverage if I move?

The ability to keep your pet's coverage when you move depends on the specific pet insurance provider and the terms and conditions of the policy. Here are a few scenarios to consider:

  1. Within the Same Country: If you are moving within the same country, some pet insurance providers may allow you to transfer your coverage to your new location without any changes to the policy. However, it's important to inform your insurance provider about the move and update your contact information accordingly.
  2. International Moves: If you are moving to a different country, it's less likely that your existing pet insurance policy will continue to provide coverage. Pet insurance policies are typically specific to a particular country or region, and the coverage may not extend to other countries. In this case, you may need to cancel your existing policy and seek new coverage from a pet insurance provider in your new country of residence.
  3. Company Policy: Some pet insurance providers may have specific policies regarding coverage continuation during a move. It's important to review the terms and conditions of your policy or contact your insurance provider directly to inquire about their policies regarding moves and coverage portability.

When planning a move, it's advisable to contact your pet insurance provider as soon as possible to discuss your options. They can provide you with the necessary information and guidance on how to proceed with your coverage. Additionally, it may be a good opportunity to explore different pet insurance providers in your new location and compare their coverage options to ensure your pet's healthcare needs are adequately covered in the new area.
