General Insurance Article - Pet travel abroad could cost 152 percent more

With the Brexit deadline fast approaching, MoneySuperMarket has revealed the rise in the cost of pet travel if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

 Research reveals that two thirds (67%) of pet owners are not aware about the implications Brexit will have on their pets existing pet passports.
 Currently, the EU Pet Travel Scheme issues pet passports which allows holiday goers and their pets the ability to travel within the EU without the requirement for quarantine on re-entry. At present, it will cost no more than £112.60 to legally travel with pets.
 However, in the event of a no-deal Brexit – the EU pet passport will no longer be valid and the process of travelling with a pet may require extra tests, new documentation and a 152% rise in costs to £283.60.
 With the new documentation requirements, pet owners will need to plan their holidays with their pets at least four months prior. Whereas, the average pet owner plans their holiday just 79 days in advance.
 Important elements required to travel with pets if the UK leaves the EU:
 • You must have your pet microchipped (£20)
 • You must have your pet vaccinated against rabies at least 21 days before travel (£32.60)
 • Your pet must have a rabies blood test (often referred to as the FAVN test or RNATT) (could cost between £50 - £170)
 • You must get an animal health certificate no more than 10 days before travel (could cost £60)
