With the right coverage your family will skip high burial prices.

Pet insurances

Most of us consider our pets as members of the family. For us they deserve the best care and attention. Our pet insurance will give you peace of mind for any unexpected circumstance; health, theft, hospitalisation…

One in three pets need veterinary treatment each year and the costs of pet healthcare in Spain can often be very high. Don’t forget that it is very important to insure the civil liability which means that with our pet insurance you will be covered for any damage caused by your pet to third parties. There is also a mandatory dog insurance for potentially dangerous dogs.

Personal accident insurances

Let’s face it, you are new in Spain and want to make the most of your stay here. That could mean living calmly enjoying a sip of sangria while savouring some tapas in a terrace of your chosen city but also taking part into frenzy adventures leading you to our gorgeous mountains, wonderful beaches and incredible countryside destinations.

How could you be sure to avoid the associated risks? Well, we all are exposed to risks in our daily life. A traffic accident while walking to your locally bar or restaurant, a slippery street on your way home from work or a hiking accidentcould happen to anyone.

An estimated of 23 home accidents occur in Spain every hour which include slipping out of the shower, falling down the stairs and similar domestic incidents. Regarding traffic accidents a 2018 report from Unespa shows 699 traffic accidents per hour and figures for 2016 reported more than 350,000 injured in a year of which over 1,100 or 3 per day died.

With a personal accident insurance, you can be covered economically in the event of suffering a home or traffic accident. Even if you own a car insurance it might be worth to be covered by a personal accident insurance and guarantee a financial protection for your family in case the worst happen.

Sports in Need of an Insurance

“Hiking is not a risk sport” you might think. Yes, it is! According to a 2016 report from FEDME (Spanish Mountaineering and Climbing Federation) hiking, trail running, and rock climbing are the sports that caused more accidents in that year. 46% of all personal accidents in the mountain were related to hiking.

Other risky sports that required people to be rescued by the Spanish official emergency services are mountain biking, canyoning, mountaineering, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and caving among others. And often the injured must pay for the costs of the deployment of rescue teams.

Benefits of a Personal Accident Insurance

The first obvious benefit of taking out a personal accident insurance is that its policy grants you coverage in case of any physical injury, demise, loss or deformity due to a violent, visible and dangerous accident. Other than that, in the tragical case of death of the insured their dependents are also covered against financial obligations.
