In most instances we are able to offer travel insurance quotes for travellers undertaking veterinary work or working with animals during their time away from the UK.
We have worked with the Worldwide Veterinary Service for a number of years offering cover for their volunteers working abroad. If you are going to be undertaking a WVS trip you can use the link below to obtain a quote and buy online.
An important thing to note is that whilst working we are unable to cover you for any liability that arises from your undertaking the tasks of a vet or working with animals and also, there is no cover under the Personal Accident section of the policy. The personal accident section provides a lump sum payment in the case of serious injury or death and is different from the emergency medical expenses section of the policy. For example, if whilst working you lost a limb your medical expenses including repatriation if medically necessary would be covered but you wouldn't receive the lump sum payment associated with loss of limb.
Please note that you should only use the below link to purchase if you are taking part in a WVS trip. If this isn't the case please read the further details below.
If you will be undertaking a trip that will involve veterinary work or working with animals and it is not a WVS trip, please contact us for a quote. We recommend emailing including full details of your trip including:
Once we have received the above information we will be able to confirm if cover can be offered and the cost of cover. We usually respond to quote enquiries the same working day or the morning of the next working day.
