The Best Pet Insurance on the Market

No-one plans for their pet to get sick – in much the same way that we don’t expect to be in a car accident. Yet we all have car insurance, so what about pet insurance?

Top tips for insuring your pet:

1. Watch out for exclusions

Always read your policy carefully, and check to see what is excluded.

2. Choose a high excess

As with all insurance policies, the higher excess you’re willing to pay, the lower the cost of the yearly premium.

3. Only insure for things that can financially kill you

Make sure your policy covers claims for your pet being in an accident or falling ill. Pay for routine treatment out of your pocket.
