BANGKOK, Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- today announced the launch of new pet and enhanced personal accident (PA+) insurance plans available online and underwritten by FWD General Insurance. A first in Thailand, pet owners can now enjoy a complete end-to-end online insurance purchase for their pets.

Easy and comprehensive online pet insurance

With premiums starting from 799 THB per year (or 67 THB per month), the pet insurance plan covers medical expenses for accidents up to 3,000 THB per accident, and 30,000 THB in total per year, while medical expenses from illness are covered up to 15,000 THB per year. The plan offers inpatient care (IPD) for accidents up to 2,000 THB per day for a maximum of 30 days, making it the first and only pet insurance in Thailand currently providing IPD benefit.

In addition, the plan makes buying insurance easy for pet owners, with a hassle-free sign-up process – there is no requirement to produce microchips or official registration certificates or proof of pre-checkups to be covered under the plan, and there is also no breed limitation.

More benefits with enhanced personal accident insurance (PA+)

The PA+ plan's enhanced benefits now cover COVID-19 and mosquito-related diseases up to 45,000 THB per year. The plan also offers extensive coverage for post-treatment care for accidents, such as nursing, physiotherapy, transportation, mobility aids and prosthesis. Customers will be able to claim up to 2,000 THB a day for a maximum of 30 days for medical expenses from accidents and specific illnesses. Additionally, the PA+ plan allows up to 5 children (from above 1 year of age) to be added to the policy, helping to protect families with children.

Both plans are now available exclusively on and will be available to purchase from agents using the bolttech platform from November onwards. 

Bob Wouters, General Manager, bolttech Thailand, said, "At bolttech, we're always thinking of ways to address protection gaps and meet more of our customers' needs with innovative protection and insurance products. We launched our new pet insurance because we understand Thai families are looking for comprehensive insurance for their cherished pets.
