Best Pet Insurance? ? ?

Hi all, what is the best pet insurance that you know of.

We have it with direct line at the moment, but it seems funny that no matter what we try and claim, that is always conveniently falls out of the brackets for what they cover for, so basically, its pointless having the insurance with them.

Any ideas or recommendations would be great.

Many Thanks.

    I'm with sainsburys Gaz, a tenner a month for my mastiff and they've paid out over £1000 worth of vets bills in the last 12 months...no questions asked, they even paid for him to have an expensive special diet for 2 months.

    Just print a claim form off the PC, hand it to the vet and they send a cheque within a week or two

    I'm with pet plan. Bit pricey but one of the few which will continue to pay out if your dog develops a life long illness. Many of the others can refuse to renew a contract if it's costing them too much, and then obviously no one else will touch you.

    in use marks and spencers. excellent value and no excess in the first year (may continue if you do not claim).

    Agreed, imo Pet Plan are the best for the reason given above.

    From what I've seen the other insurers all stipulate that as part of the policy they will not continue to pay out for an illness for more then 12 months (it becomes regarded as a pre-existing condition come renewal time and is therefore excluded from further cover and treatment). Obviously if your pet develops a lifelong illness then this will leave you in a very bad position.

    Pet Plan is the only insurer which guarantees to provide cover for life.

    Pet Plan may be a little more expensive but when comparing with other insurers please bare this in mind Gaz and ensure you are comparing like for like in terms of benefits.

    Thanks Osagi.

    Nice write up there mate.

    We done mind what it costs to be honest as long as he is covered and is actually covered with a decent level of quality.

    Just been getting quotes this morning for my puppy now her 6 week's free insurance has expired and am pleasantly surprised to report that Petplan are less than half what Sainsburys and Buddies are quoting, so I'm going with them. Thought from what I had heard that Petplan would have been dearer, but they're not. Maybe they just understand how vigorous and healthy the breed (Inuit) is.
