Important Notice re Brexit Impact on our Pet Insurance

Please note: 
The An Post Insurance Pet insurance product is underwritten by Millennium Insurance Company Limited, a company based in Gibraltar and administered by Kainos Associates LLP, a firm based in the United Kingdom.

The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union has now occurred and we currently operate in a transitional period until 31st December 2020, by which point it is hoped that new trade deals between the UK and European Union will be finalised. Currently, Millennium Insurance Company Limited and Kainos Associates LLP continue to operate on the Freedom of Services basis into the Republic of Ireland. In the event of Millennium Insurance Company Limited and Kainos Associates LLP being unable to continue operating on a Freedom of Service basis, An Post Insurance will regrettably no longer be in a position to offer Pet Insurance through Millennium Insurance Company Limited and Kainos Associates LLP and as such will be unable to offer renewal terms to existing customers through these providers. At this point, we are continuing to review other potential arrangements for the supply of services for our Pet Insurance product, and we will keep our customers updated on any developments in this regard.

It should be noted that any policy sold before the end of the transition period, 31st December 2020, will continue to be covered until the policy’s next renewal date, and any claims currently being handled, or which arise on those policies, will be dealt with as normal in accordance with the policy terms and conditions.
