Specialist motorbike insurer Bennetts has launched online pet insurance through its site bennetts.co.uk.

The pet policy, underwritten by Pinnacle Pet Healthcare, covers the costs of vet's bills and fees. Cover can continue throughout a pet's life, regardless of how ill the animal is or how much has been claimed on the policy.

Anna Bishop, Bennett's e-commerce marketing manager, said: “We are now offering a wider range of insurance products and services on the web in order to meet our customers' needs and expectations.”

The site now includes motor, home, travel and commercial vehicle, as well as pet insurance.
