- What is Lifetime Cover?
Just like humans, dogs and cats can develop long term or recurring illnesses such as diabetes or arthritis. Illnesses such as these require regular and long term treatment by the vet and in some cases for the rest of the pet's life.
Lifetime cover provides ongoing protection for pets and is ideal for pet owners concerned about their dog or cat developing a long term, chronic or recurring illness.
Once insured a pet will continue to be covered for rest of its life as long as the policy is renewed each year and the appropriate premium is received.
Our lifetime cover policy is our most popular policy and provides essential vet fees cover up to £4000 per policy period.
- What is Standard Cover?
Dogs and cats are very much part of family life and protecting your pets against the unexpected can certainly help cover any unexpected incidences. Insuring your pet can protect against any unforeseen costs that may arise and with the cost of vets fees continuing to rise insurance is well worth taking into consideration.
Our standard cover can provide protection for a limited period of time following illness or injury to your cat or dog. Insuring your pet can be expensive, however time limited cover is ideal for customers with a smaller budget who still wish to protect their loved one.
Our standard pet insurance covers cats and dogs from the age of 5 weeks to 8 years. The standard plan provides essential vets fees cover up to £4,000 pet policy period for each illness or injury up to 365 days from the date that the pet first displayed clinical signs of the illness/injury. The plan also features many more benefits including cover for loss by theft or straying and public liability.
- How much is the excess?
The excess for each policy varies depending on where you live and your chosen level of cover. Simply request a quote and select the type of cover you require. You will then be presented with the list of benefits and your excess amount.
- What age does my pet have to be for insurance with you?
We insure both cats and dogs between the ages of 5 weeks and 8 years old and on our senior plan, 8 years old and above.
- Are there any dogs you don't insure?
There are certain breeds we do not cover; use the following link to check: Dogs we don't insure. If your dog is on the list, or is crossed with any of these breeds, we are unfortunately unable to provide insurance.
