Pet Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

How old does my pet have to be for insurance?

You can cover your dog or cat as soon as they are eight weeks old. Please note that a maximum age limit also applies to our policies. For our Top or Essential Cover, your pet must be under nine years old to apply. For our Basic Accident & Illness Cover, your pet must be under 16 years old to apply.

Will my pet be covered when it gets older?

Yes. Once you have insurance for your pet, you can keep renewing your policy with us for the rest of its life – as long as there isn’t a break in your cover.

Will I have to pay an excess?

No. There’s no excess to pay – so depending on your level of cover, you may get back up to 80% of all your eligible vet expenses.

Will my pet be covered if they’re not vaccinated?

Yes. If you prefer not to vaccinate your pet, you can still get cover with us. But if they become sick with a disease that could have been prevented by vaccination, we won’t cover any of the cost of their treatment.

Will my pet be covered for hereditary problems?

Yes. We’ll cover treatments for hereditary or congenital problems as long as your pet doesn’t have symptoms before you take out your policy or during any waiting periods (subject to normal exclusions, as set out in the Policy Booklet).
