Elaine and Milo the African Grey Parrot

"Living with three African Grey Parrots, I have a policy that covers my veterinary bills if the need should arise. I chose ExoticDirect as my insurance provider as they offered a reasonable priced policy, with a decent level of cover.

I had cause to claim last year, when Milo burnt his foot, silly parrot had tried to climb onto a gas fire! I was really impressed that a claims advisor talked me through the claim process and kept track on documentation. Within weeks I had received settlement of my claim. I recommend to all parrot caregivers that they should consider medical insurance for that unexpected injury or illness"
