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:
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.

With Petplan, our “Covered For Life” plan delivers exactly that. Provided that you continue to renew the policy year after year, without any gaps, we provide complete insurance cover for your pet for any chronic, re-occurring or lifelong conditions and illnesses for the duration of their life. That cover includes third-party liability, prescription foods and even the cost of nutraceuticals if prescribed by a vet.
If you don’t want lifelong cover and cover for third party liability or prescription foods and nutraceuticals, you can simply choose our “12 Month Essential Cover” plan, where you can simply choose to take out insurance cover for a specific condition for 12 months. After the 12 months, the condition is excluded.

It is important to find the right policy to suit you and your needs. Comparing helps understand the ins and outs of a policy, and more importantly what happens when you need to claim. Other policies on the market may be cheaper but they are riddled with sub limits and conditions that leave you even more out of pocket. Petplan is the only insurer with genuine Covered For Life pet insurance.
When you compare pet insurance plans from Petplan with the policies offered by other insurance companies, look out for their sub limits, how they exclude conditions, and if they cover medication, diagnostics and ruptured cruciate ligaments
You will find that Petplan offers a much more comprehensive pet insurance policy. *
Think above the cost – think about value for money. Which policy will give you lifetime cover, which policy does not place specific exclusions or sub limits on certain accidents and illnesses. Petplan provides the best value pet insurance policies on the market.
Do other insurers cap consultation fees? Some procedures require multiple visits to the vet, and we don’t enforce a sub limit on veterinary fees. We wouldn’t want you to hesitate or avoid visiting the vet because you couldn’t claim on it.
We don’t limit or cap the treatments and accidents that you are likely to be claiming for. We want to see each pet have access to the best available care and for each pet owner able to afford it with Petplan pet insurance. *#
Our pets are mischief makers and can find themselves into all sorts of trouble. While mostly innocent, when it is serious it can result in unexpected veterinary bills, where having pet insurance is a necessity.
We make everything straightforward and easy to understand, so that you can relax knowing that you are covered.
