There are a few things to bear in mind with regard to this type of policy:
- It doesn’t include any cover if your dog or cat is ill. This is an important consideration. In a survey by Which magazine, 70% of claims over a two year period were for illnesses.
- Many policies have a cover limit, in other words, they’ll cover you for a certain amount of fees per accident, for example £2,500. Bearing in mind the sums that can be involved if your pet does have an accident, check what this level is and that you are happy with it.
- Policies from providers have different terms and conditions. Make sure you read all of them before signing up.
- Finally shop around. It couldn’t be easier to use our site to compare pet insurance prices and cover. Simply enter the details about you and your pet and we’ll take the strain out of comparing prices for you.
