Default Dwa Insurance

In our area, to apply for a dwa license you need to be insured for over 1 million, would of thought it was in case the animal turned nasty and injured you or something.

Does anyone have any quotes on how much it would cost to get insured for this amount.

Thanks

They charged me £110 per animal, that was for the caiman. I thought that was quite reasonable.

The insurance is not just a requirement by your council, it's a requiremnet of the DWA accross the country, everyone with DWA has to have it and as Fangsy mentioned, Exotic Direct is the company,as far as I am aware, they are the only company to offer it.

Thats really good, they must do different prices for different animals, I could only go on the caiman when I enquired.

after 5 you add £50 for each additional snake or its something like £450 for up to 25 venomous snakes I believe, the cover gives £1 million of cover.

Thought the license has to cover you though and not just the animal

My friend added the liability cover onto his home insurance through the Prudential and said it was a lot cheaper that way. Worth getting a quote to compare.
