Comprehensive Pet Insurance
Pets are like family and we always want to do the best for them. But if they fall sick or are injured the vets bills may be an expense you simply can't afford. Our pet insurance plans provide protection of up to $15,000 per year which can help you to give your pet the care they need without worrying about the cost.
Comprehensive Pet Insurance in brief
Flexible cover options and an Annual Benefit Limit of up to $15,000 towards vet bills can help you provide the best treatment for your pet, plus additional coverage for certain conditions like tick paralysis.
With our Accidental Injury Protect plus Routine cover, you get extra benefits towards regular preventative treatments like your pet's annual vaccinations.
The premiums you pay for your pet insurance will depend on the type and breed, age and health of your pet. You can make extra savings on your premium by reducing your Annual Benefit Limit. This way you can save money while still receiving comprehensive cover when you need it most.
There is no excess to pay with our pet insurance. We will pay up to 75% of eligible vet expenses if your pet has an accident or falls ill. This includes up to 75% of the costs of consultations, diagnostic tests, medicines, specialist treatment and hospitalisation.
Our pet insurance gives you country-wide protection. Whether you are close to home or travelling when your pet falls ill, you can use the services of any vet in Australia - and in approved countries overseas. So wherever you are, you'll be able to get vet care for your beloved pet.
Like your house full of pets? If you insure more than one dog or cat with us you'll qualify for a 5% discount on your premiums for each additional policy, making your pet insurance even more affordable.
All our pet insurance products have a 21 day cooling off period, so if you change your mind you can simply cancel your policy and get a full refund, provided you haven't made a claim.
It's hard to think about something happening to our pets, but the reality is that they will need vet care at some stage. And it's not just older pets who need insurance. Accidents and sudden illnesses can happen to pets of any age, and the vet bills can catch you completely unprepared.
Make sure you can afford the care your pet deserves. Our comprehensive pet insurance covers you for up to 75% of your veterinary bills if your pet is injured or falls ill. This includes the treatment of all common pet conditions including cancers and tick paralysis.
