Pet Sitter Insurance FAQs

Am I covered if one of the pets I care for bites someone?

Yes. This will be covered by your public liability cover in your policy. Public liability cover protects you against claims made by third parties who have been injured or had their property damaged due to an accident linked to your business and caused by some form of negligence.

If a pet in my care is injured or sick?

It depends on the insurer you choose to go with. If this is cover that you would like to include then please make sure you let our team know when you run through your quote.

What if a pet escapes from my care?

You must still take reasonable precautions to prevent pets escaping but there are policies that include this feature if you do. Again, just ask the adviser you speak with and they will source polices which have this cover.

Can I pay in instalments?

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your policy you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).

To find out more about PCL and direct debit payments, select Direct Debit.

To understand more about how PCL work together with Towergate, please read our Regulatory Information.
