What types of pet insurance is available for older cats?
There are four main types of cover to choose from, some of which are more suitable for older cats than others:
- Lifetime pet insurance – tends to be the most expensive but will cover your older cat for life, as long as you renew the policy every year. This cover can be the best choice for older cats.
- Maximum benefit pet insurance – this won’t usually be the best choice if your older cat has a long-term health condition.
- Time limited pet insurance – might not be the right option for older cats with potentially long-term conditions but is generally good for younger cats.
- Accident only pet insurance – this basic kind of cover is usually unsuitable for caring for older cats.
