Pet Insurance Policies
Petplan offer a choice of four policies, a time-limited 12-month policy and three lifetime annual benefit policies.
The time-limited 12-month policy is available for pets of any age, but you can only take out a new lifetime policy for dogs 7 years or under and cats 9 years or under.
Although their initial premiums can come out relatively expensive, most reports we receive suggest that their increases on renewal are more moderate than many other companies".
The Petplan lifetime policies have higher than average excess payments (eg £100 per condition per year for dogs).
You also have to pay 20% of vet fees for older pets. (This applies to all of their policies).
