Pets in Cars Could Void Cover

August 24, 2016

If you allow your pet to freely wander around your vehicle while you are driving, you are at risk for having your car insurance invalidated, according to insurance industry experts. The reason for this is that an unrestrained pet in a moving vehicle is a breach of the Highway Code, which could lead to voided cover.

This means that in addition to potentially having your insurance voided if you are involved in an accident while your pet is unrestrained, you could also be charged with ‘driving without due care and attention’ and ‘dangerous driving’. The latter charge has a minimum 12-month disqualification if you are found guilty.

For that reason, here are five pieces of guidance to help you safely travel with your pet:
