Auto Insurance for Pets

By Vladimir Negron    May 26, 2009 at 04:24PM

Some U.S. auto insurers are taking the next logical step in the industry and have begun to extend coverage to pets injured or killed in car accidents at no extra charge to customers, including Progressive, Auto-Owners Insurance, and Farmers Insurance.

Policies will differ depending on the insurance company, so make sure to ask if your auto insurance includes accidental coverage for your furry friends.

In other news, there is still no insurance against gridlock commuter traffic. Sorry, folks.
