Cat Life Insurance

Cat Life Insurance is a goodunderline insurance policy for all cat owners. If you have this insurance, you will receive compensation if the cat dies as a result of an accident or illness or if euthanasia is recommended by a veterinarian.

More About Cat Life Insurance

  • Period of purchase: When a cat is between the age of 8 weeks and 5 years.
  • Insurance amount: The insurance amount of Cat Life Insurance is an optional amount. It is good to keep in mind that the compensation can never exceed the market value of the cat on the day of the accident. If you want to insure a cat for more than ISK 80,000, the cat must have a registered pedigree with the Icelandic Cat Breeding Society. The insurance amount will remain unchanged until the cat reaches the age of 7 years, after which it will decrease by 20% annually.
  • Duration: Once the cat reaches the age of 10, the insurance is cancelled and will not be renewed.

You can get a quote online. It is necessary to include a certificate from a veterinarian about the general health of the cat. The certificate must be less than 30 days old and the veterinarian must prepare the certificate on a form provided by VIS. You can attach the certificate to the quote request or send it to vis@vis.is. It is not sufficient to submit a vaccination certificate or a certificate from an animal quarantine facility.
