How much is pet insurance?
It really depends on the animal, its medical history and the type of cover you’re looking for but some policies start from as little as £2.94* a month.
What details do I need to get a pet insurance quote?
As well as details about yourself e.g. name, date of birth, email address and address, make sure you have these details to hand:
• Your pet’s personal details eg name, breed, gender, their date of birth and whether they’ve been neutered.
My pet has a pre-existing medical condition. Can I still get cover?
• Their vaccination history - are they up to date with their vaccines?
Most insurers won’t offer cover to a pet with pre-existing medical conditions, as it’s more likely that you’ll have to claim more than once for the original problem. It’s best to get your pet insured when they are young, so that if any health problems occur later in life, you’ll have peace of mind that they’ll be covered.
Does my pet need to be microchipped to get pet insurance?
Microchipping your dog is a legal requirement, and it makes life much easier if your dog goes missing. Although it’s not required by law, microchipping your cat is also a good idea. Not only does it make finding a missing pet much easier, it could also lower your premiums as you could be seen as a responsible owner.
