Why Should You Get Pet Insurance For Your Parrot?

Published on Tuesday, 9th February 2016
It’s Love Your Pet Day on February 20th, and one of the ways you can show your Parrot just how much you care for them is by getting them pet insurance.

Although none of us like to think about the worst happening, if your Parrot is unfortunate enough to become ill you could be hit with expensive vet bills if you don’t have suitable insurance to cover the cost.

By getting insurance you have the peace of mind your bird will be cared for during illness. The cost of the insurance each month varies depending on how many birds you own, their age, species and other.

ExoticDirect are an insurance company who we have worked with previously and know that they provide an excellent service to Parrot and bird owners. They have over 20 years’ experience in the industry.  

They also sponsor The Parrot Society who we are also proud to support.

On ExoticDirect’s website you can obtain a free no obligation quote using this link. 


What type of cover is available?
There are two types of insurance available, Parrot insurance and small bird insurance.

What types of policies are available?
For Parrot owners, ExoticDirect policies can cover:
1.Theft, fire and weather perils
2.Death from accident, illness or injury
3.Veterinary fee cover for accidental injury or illness up to £2,500 or £5.000 per policy period.

For small bird owners ExoticDirect provide the following policy:
1.Veterinary Fee Cover for accident, sickness, or disease, up to £1.500 per policy period.

What else do I need to know?
Vet bills can run into thousands of pounds that many of us simply cannot afford to pay.

Claims are usually processed within 5 working days of making the claim. 

They also offer a complimentary lost and found notification service whereby they will notify the Lost and Found Register should your bird go missing.  This is a national database, which holds details of all birds lost or stolen.  It can be imperative in helping to reunite birds with their owners. 

Visit ExoticDirect’s website for all their contact details and obtain a free no obligation quote.

Of course other insurance companies are available and you should look around for the best deal for your Parrot. We would recommend having your Parrot insured though.
