Pet Insurance.

Child and Dog

We aim to offer Simple and affordable pet insurance

Our pets are uncomplicated creatures. We find them reassuring; they're a simple, constant presence while life's complications come and go. Our new dog and cat insurance aims to be refreshingly straightforward too, mirroring the nature of our pets. So, pet insurance doesn't have to be one of life's complications.

  • Up to £3,000 in veterinary fees, per condition
  • We'll cover you for advertising and a reward for your lost pet (Accident and Illness Plus only)
  • Pay your premium monthly at no extra cost
  • Online claims submission and tracking
  • Vetadviceline available - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

Cover options range from Accident only to Accident and Illness Plus with two policy types:

  • Accident only, our Maximum Benefit Policy means that there's a financial limit for each new condition the animal may suffer. Each condition is insured until the financial limit has been reached; as long as the insurance policy remains in force there is no time limit on your claim. Once the financial limit has been reached, the medical condition becomes a pre-existing condition and is excluded from future claims.
  • Accident and Illness and Accident and Illness Plus, our Renewable Benefit Policies mean your pet can be covered for an ongoing condition for future years as long as the insurance policy remains in force with us.
