The Petplan Story

Our story begins way back in 1976 in the United Kingdom, and we are now the biggest and most experienced pet insurance company in the world. In 2004, Doug and Gwen Ford bought the naming rights and began setting up Petplan in Australia and New Zealand. Both of them are extremely involved in the dog showing community and this, along with their undying love for pets, made them the perfect match to get Petplan Australasia up and running.
