An Australian financial news site analyzed just what type of exotic pet insurance Jolly Old St. Nicholas would have to be on the good list when it comes to responsible pet ownership. (Because the holidays tend to give journalists a slow news week.)
“The site will need to look for a supplier willing to cover reindeer during its comparison process,” the feature on Mozu.com.au reads. And from there, “Santa will have to consult with Mrs. Claus and decide which inclusions they want and which they can live without.”
And from Rudolph’s pre-existing condition to the exclusion of “working animals,” not to mention a “multi-pet policy,”; it’s a sled full of fine print.
“If he classifies his worldwide Christmas adventure as business-related, he may not be eligible for coverage (unless he chooses business insurance). However, he may be covered if this is his equivalent of walking the dog,” the article states.
“But Santa doesn’t want to lie or mislead the provider during the enrollment process. Providers have the right to cancel or invalidate your policy if they find you haven’t held out at the end of the true bargain. Talk about being on the naughty list!”
