December 1, 2008 (Delray Beach,Florida) — Pet Airways and Pets Best Insurance announce their strategic partnership to bring pet insurance to the Pet Airways customer base at a discounted rate. Pet Airways is the first scheduled airline specifically designed for comfortable, efficient transportation of pets. Pets Best Insurance reimburses pet owners for 80% of services (after a minimal deductible) from the veterinarian they choose, with no schedules or fee restrictions. Pet Best Insurance will offer discounted insurance rates to Pet Airways’ MyPAWS Club Members and engage in their respective affiliate programs. This will benefit the Pet Airways customer by offering a group rate for pet insurance.
MyPaws members will now receive a 10% discount on new Pets Best policies. With this strategic partnership MyPaws members will have another opportunity to save on pet care. Pet Airways and Pets Best will provide links to each other’s web sites to ensure ease in processing new orders and confirmation of the appropriate discounts.
“We are delighted to add Pets Best Insurance to our suite of offerings to our MyPAWS Club members. Having a sick pet can be very traumatic to the owner, not to mention financially draining.” Says Dan Wiesel, the President/CEO of Pet Airways. “Pets Best Insurance will allow pet owners to have peace of mind when it comes to their pet’s well being.” According to the American Animal Hospital Association, approximately 76 million cats and dogs travel with their owners each year. Dogs and cats are found in at least 1 out of every 3 households. Pet Airways is dedicated to making pet travel a seamless, less stressful and safe way to travel for pets. “My two smaller pets travel extensively with me while promoting pet insurance,” says Dr. Jack Stephens, President of Pets Best Insurance. “Now my larger dogs can travel safely and comfortably on long trips— what a wonderful service!”
