Progressive Adds Insurance coverage for your pets!
Progressive Auto Insurance has announced that they are now offering "first-person" insurance if your dog or cat is injured in a car accident. Historically if you have been in an accident that is not your fault, the other driver's insurance will pay for your pet's vet bills.Progressive claims this is the first policy written that will provide coverage for yourpets if you are at fault in the accident. The limit is $500 and I'm not sure if that is for each pet or total. Also the press release says it is for your dog or cat so again it is unclear if this would cover other exotic animals like birds.
Its an interesting idea and may just be a marketing gimmic. What are your thoughts?
