ExoticDirect can cover large birds for:

• £5,000 or £2,500 of vet fees

• Death from both accident and illness

• Theft and proven loss

Loss as a result of weather perils is also covered. So if your bird is kept in an outside aviary, then proven loss caused by the weather can be covered.  

There are three policy types to choose from and you can insure up to three large birds per policy. 

For smaller bird owners you can purchase

• £1,500 of vet fee cover, covering up to three birds.

Collection cover for small birds

If you own a collection of small birds, we offer a separate policy. This offers £1,500 of vet fee cover for each bird, and you can add as many birds as you like to the policy. This cover level is only available to purchase over the phone. Just call: 0345 982 5505.

And if you own a Bird of Prey, you can insure it too. 

ExoticDirect can cover a wide range of Birds of Prey for:

• £5,000 or £2,500 of vet fees

• Death from both accident and illness

Non-Return cover is added as standard to Bird of Prey policies covering £5,000 of veterinary cover. This complimentary addition offers you further peace when flying your bird.

Finally, ExoticDirect can also insure your aviary for up to £5,000 as an add on to your policy.  You can only add this to policies over the phone. 

Don’t forget, in order to redeem your Parrot Society member discount, you’ll need to call ExoticDirect quoting your PSUK membership number.

Why insurance?

There are of course alternatives to purchasing insurance, but as vet bills can and often do quickly escalate. If your bird has an ongoing condition, any savings can quickly get used up. Leaving you with cost dependent choices to be made.

Why are veterinary fees so high?

Vets have access to far better diagnostic equipment and medications than ever before, however these advancements are expensive. Veterinary practices often cannot afford to pick up the costs themselves and have to pass them to the pet owner. Other factors to influence pricing include the costs associated with running a 24/7 practice – which is required by law to provide emergency treatment when needed; the region where you may live  – vets in some regions are more expensive than others, as property costs and business rates vary; VAT – at 20% this is added to your bill ; and the cost of referral fees which may be added to your bill, if you were referred to a specialist vet. 

If you choose to insure your bird, you’re giving it a chance at getting the best treatment available, and you’re removing the financial strain on yourself.
