Cat Insurance

Hi!I am moving to Brussels with my three cats, they all have their passports and have been vaccinated for rabies. I would like to know if you need to have pet insurance and if it is easy to obtain in Belgium. Many thanks SweetpeaStobart

I think it is less common here than in the UK for example. But sometimes your house insurance covers pets. Check with your new broker.

You don't have to get insurance, but its worth it, as animals can get ill any time and the vets costs can be quite high.

Your vet should be able to recommend a broker.

We always insured our dogs but not our cats as dogs are more likely to require expensive operations due to their size. However it is better to be safe than sorry!

Pet insurance doesn't exist in Belgium for vet bills, but your "assurance familiale" will cover your pet, e.g. if they cause an accident. It's a shame as vet bills can be very high here.
