Animal Friends partners with Aviva for pet insurance

Pet insurance specialist Animal Friends Insurance has announced a new partnership with Aviva, following a 12-month tender process.

Animal Friends Insurance was selected by Aviva to provide and manage pet insurance policies for new customers.

Under the partnership, Aviva customers visiting the insurer’s website or app to buy pet insurance will now be introduced to Animal Friends Insurance.

New policyholders will receive complimentary access to online veterinary service provider, Joii, whose app features a free symptom checker, video consultations with vets, and the addition of a range of health clinics with vet nurses to help owners receive information on topics from puppy and kittens through to weight management and dental checks.

Wes Pearson, managing director at Animal Friends Insurance, said of the partnership: ”We are extremely proud of this partnership with Aviva and we are committed to providing the high-quality service customers expect from such a well-known and respected brand.”

”We are uniquely placed to offer owners the right insurance cover for their pet and at the same time helping animal charities worldwide, at no extra cost to the customer. To date, we have donated over £4 million and will continue to support and raise awareness of animal welfare causes.”
