Compare Petplan Pet Insurance with other dog and cat insurance

When comparing pet insurance plans, it can be easy to focus solely on price. However, in ensuring you achieve the competitive price for your policy, it’s important that you get to know the precise cover offered by that plan. The last thing that you want to uncover in the event of a claim is that cover for a specific condition isn’t actually included in your plan.

Insurance cover can vary significantly from provider to provider, so when you’re seeking to compare pet insurance Australia wide, you need to get to know exactly what you’re getting for your premium. There are lots of elements of cover you may assume to be a standard inclusion in your policy, but in realty may actually only be offered as policy add-ons.

Most pet insurance providers in Australia categorise the policy in the following three ways, which can difficult to understand and decipher:

  • Guaranteed Life Time Cover (guarantees to cover the pet only in old age, but not actually for their entire life period or in the event of chronic illness)
  • Maximum Benefit Cover (covers claims to a set amount per Condition, after that amount, the condition is excluded)
  • 12 Months Cover (conditions are covered for 12 months only, then cover for the condition is excluded)

With such vague policy labels, without reading the fine print it’s easy to be misled and assume you’re purchasing a policy that offers a lot more than you’re paying for.

After the 12 months, the condition is excluded.
