You will no longer need an Authorisation book. We will contact your client via text and email to let them know you have submitted a claim on their behalf.
You will need to go to Pawtal and register your details. You will need to provide the following information:
- Your name and email address
- Practice name and address
- Practice telephone number
Once you have registered, we will send you a password, so you’ll be able to log into Pawtal. Please note that it may take up to an hour before you receive a password and will only be sent during office hours. Once you receive a password you can log into Pawtal and submit a claim. If you have any problems registering with us, please call us on 01980 666 044.
For auditing purposes please send your current Authorisation book back to us at Animal Friends Insurance, Number 1 The Crescent, Sunrise Way, Amesbury, SP4 7QA.
