Agria’s Age Amnesty extended for one more month

Following the overwhelming response to Agria Pet Insurance's Age Amnesty, Agria is extending the offer for another month. This means that cats and dogs of any age will be eligible for a lifetime insurance policy taken out up to and including 31st May 2015. 

The amnesty is perfect for owners of older pets, who are often excluded from new pet insurance policies by the vast majority of providers. Usually, a maximum starting age limit is applied to new policies, but during the Age Amnesty Agria has waived this.

Agria launched Age Amnesty on April 1 to celebrate their new rescue centre support scheme. This enables rehoming centres and charities to set up five weeks free insurance policies for rehomed cats and dogs, to give adopters additional peace of mind as their new pet settles in.
