Thornside has been selected by Shop Direct Group to provide online pet insurance through the group’s Littlewoods.com and Very.co.uk brands.

The firm, which is part of the Capita Group, already provides pet insurance for Shop Direct’s customers over the phone, and managing director, David Seel, says he is delighted to be supporting the development of a complete online offering.

Under the agreement, Thornside will deliver a sales, fulfilment and claims handling package for cover that includes vet fees, theft/straying, third party liability, overseas travel and death.

Shop Direct insurance director, Mark Randerson, comments: “As a reputable player in the pet insurance market, we believe Thornside is best placed to provide our customers with competitive cover for their beloved pets – all at the click of a button”.

In recent weeks, Thornside has been selected to provide and administer Sainsbury’s pet insurance and announced a partnership with Home Retail Group to administer a new pet insurance programme in Ireland.
