A handful of pet insurance companies offer more than 90 days foreign travel cover for your dog.
Only Aviva seems to offer more than 90 days on all its policies as standard. You'll have to choose a specific policy or travel add-on with other companies.
Many companies offer up to 90 days cover for travel with your pet. However, you shouldn't assume this is standard. Some pet insurers still only allow you to travel for 30 or 45 days with a dog. Check your policy documents to know what you are paying for.
Bought By Many offers up to 90 days EU vet cover as standard with our Complete cover.
You can add 90 days vet fee cover in Europe to most of our other pet insurance policies.
More than 90 days of pet cover across multiple trips
Some pet insurance offers more than 90 days of total cover for foreign travel across separate trips. For example, John Lewis, More Than and M&S allow policyholders to take three 60-day trips during a policy year.
This may not be helpful if you want to a trip that will last longer than 2 months but if you return home to the UK with your pet for a few days between trips, these policies could cover you to be away with your pet for up to 6 months a year in total.
Check vet fee levels and destinations
When shopping around for pet insurance that includes foreign travel, be sure to check the level of vet fee cover along with the number of days abroad the companies allows.
Aviva offers up to £6,500 of cover for up to 180 days of travel while other companies offer over £10,000 of vet fee cover for up to 90 days of travel.
£6,500 for vet fees may be suitable for many dog owners but you need to weigh up the cost of treatment in the countries you're travelling to, the length of your trip (a long trip could mean you have claim multiple times) and how likely you are to claim.
Check the countries your policy covers you for. Many will only cover travel in the EU and they may require you to have up-to-date Pet Travel Scheme documents.
