Oct-14 - Patricia from Gloucester - 4/5
"Very efficient, had text to say they were dealing with the claim and usually got the cheque within 10 days."
Oct-14 - Sally L from Cheltenham - 5/5
"Spencer has had an illness and accident filled life. We have had to make numerous claims, large ones at that eg, broken leg, snake bite, horrendous near death attack in March this year and now he has a suspected tumour behind the eye. We have never once had a problem. As soon as our vet puts in the claim we receive a text to say it is being dealt with and cheque arrives within the week. Now that he is 10+ years we pay 20% of each claim but certainly over last few years we have received well over the amount we have paid in."
Oct-14 - Boo Boo from Leeds - 5/5
"Direct claim via vet practice. Paid promptly, text communication with policy holder & paper copy of details of issues."

I've actually claimed several times in the last 12 months. Petplan have paid me promptly each time.
Sep-14 - Kelly from Crawley - 4/5
"The PetPlan claim form was clear and easy to fill in with my details. They processed the claim within 2 weeks from me sending it off and have had payment into my account. The only thing that has let PetPlan down is their Claim tracking section on the website. I first of all looked on there and the claim was there and was recieved on the 19th Sep 2014 but then said it was closed on the 19th with no information as to weather the claim was accepted or rejected, it just said it was closed! There is a section for payment but this was blank too so I was very confused, but upon phoning up they said it was all accepted and payment was on the way. So they need to have a much better and clearer indication of what is happening with a claim on their website."

Aug-14 - Kels from Falkirk - 5/5
"I was kept up to date with the processing of my claim, which was for ongoing treatment of a continuing heart condition, by text. We had to pay the vet up front and claim the amount (minus excess obviously) back from the insurer. From submission of claim, via vet, to reimbursement was less than 4 weeks. I've always had outstanding customer service from the company too. The claims process is as simple as I believe they could make it also."
Aug-14 - Sarah C from Redruth - 5/5
"Petplan handle claims exceptionally well. My vet fills in the form and send it off. Petplan send text messages to let you know when the claim has been received, processed and when it is paid out. They have always paid out everything I have claimed for."
Aug-14 - Dee from Milton Keynes - 5/5
I have one young dog with hip dysplasia and a second one with colitis so both have many claims throughout the year and Petplan have always been prompt in settling direct with their Vet
Aug-14 - Susan Janiszewski from Nottinghamshire - 2/5
"It took 6 weeks
Jul-14 - Sylvia from Forest of Dean - 3/5
The claim was paid although 2 or 3 weeks after their expected clearance date. The claim had been put to one side as it was a continuation of another claim which had been undecided when the second claim went in. The company website contained a form to enquire about progress but it didn't seem to work. As soon as I rang the company they realised that the previous claim had been sorted but this one had not been looked at again. Action was prompt when I rang though its a shame that I had to remind them to look at my claim again.
Jul-14 - Char from Doncaster - 3/5
Jul-14 - Colin from Leicester - 5/5
I have two continuing claims for my 6 year old rescue collie and having been claiming for both of these since the around the ages of 1 and 3. Petplan have always paid these claims very promptly and with never a quibble.
Jul-14 - Richard from Cambridgeshire - 4/5
It took a lot of calls and lost claim forms to finaly get an answer. But once it was being dealt with it was swift and paid in full.
Jul-14 - Carol A from Bristol - 5/5
Dealt with quickly and with no problems
Jul-14 - Mark D from Bristol - 5/5
"Very easy, my vet filled out the form and submitted it. With in a day I had text to tell me they received my claim and were processing it. Then about a week latter I had a letter to say the claim will be paid and was sent directly to the vet."
Jul-14 - Nik from Surrey - 5/5
"Fast, efficient pay out"
Jul-14 - Aila Brandon from Stevenage - 5/5
"Pet plan always sends a message when they receive the claim. The payment always comes within the next two weeks. The only problems have been from the Vet's end. I have a dog with a condition which requires daily medication and fairly frequent vet attention, so sometimes the claims take a bit of sorting out. This is a lifetime policy and for this dog is brilliant, the premiums go up but no more than they would if he did not have this condition (Portosystemic shunt). Have another dog also insured by Petplan, healthy dog, one claim, sorted quickly."
Jul-14 - Ken W from Luton - 5/5
They paid all of my claim within 2 months.
Jul-14 - Nikki from Swindon - 5/5

Jul-14 - Lisa P from Todmorden - 5/5
My dog became ill and Later passed away and the insurance company was brill
Jul-14 - Rhiannon M from Findon - 1/5
"Payment was made to the wrong party - should have been direct to me, but they paid my vet. Not only that, but the invoice was for treatment at an emergency vet, so they didn't even pay the CORRECT vet! They admitted the mistake, but would not take any action to put it right - I had to ask my vet to forward the payment to my bank account, and only just in time to pay my credit card bill. If it had been left to PetPlan, I'd still be waiting. This was logged as a complaint in mid August 2014 - and I'm still waiting for their response!"
Jul-14 - Sophie from Southampton - 3/5
"Our experience was ok and thankfully everything paid. However due to having put through multiple claims throughout this year, both made directly by the vet and some by ourselves due to a number of operations things became very confusing, payments took weeks to receive whether it was to us or the vets and we were kept completely out of the loop with the claims progress."
Jul-14 - Stephanie from Staffordshire - 4/5
Have never quibbled over a claim and have always paid up although not full amount due to excess and in past age related % amount to be included on any claim.
Jul-14 - Carole Spelman from Maidstone Kent - 5/5
"This claim was made on the 4 week free puppy insurance by petplan from the breeder.No quibbling about the claim.Claim was for £191,had to pay the excess of £100 n they paid out £81 ....said they didn't cover ""special ""food stuff prescribed by the vet.I was ok with that.Decision n payment direct to me was very quick n no hassle.Have continued my policy for my pup with them."

Jun-14 - Jacqui from Lincolnshire - 3/5
"There was a delay as petplan said they had not received the claim from my vets (this is the first time this has happened) and the claim took quite a long time to be processed, but once done there was no problem with the payment"
Jun-14 - Emma from Cardiff - 3/5
"Claim was paid in full but petplan issued cheque to vet instead of directly to me, we're very unhelpful when I spoke to them and different customer service reps contradicted and blamed each other. Once I spoke to a manager the problem was resolved but they really need to work on their customer service staff's knowledge and attitudes!"
Jun-14 - Anon from  - 5/5
"Paid as soon as claim was submitted as usual, very prompt efficient service. Huge claim which reached the limit of insurance. Excellent! My dog was at a referral centre, I paid them, they submitted the claim form and pet plan paid me."

Claims are dealt with by vets and paid direct to vets. I receive text updates and emails on claim progress and a comprehensive claims analysis when the claim is settled. Claims are generally settled within a couple of weeks.
Jun-14 - George from Warwickshire - 5/5
"Although we had to initially pay the bills to the vet, the vet practice printed out all the paperwork and sent it off to pet plan. We were reimbursed with no problems at all the full amount (- £75 excess) for xrays/bloods/sedation etc straight into the bank. Overall a very pleased. First time we've ever had to make a claim for our puppy."
May-14 - Elise from Bognor Regis - 4/5
Would have been excellent but they took weeks to complete the claim
May-14 - Clare from Chalfont St Giles - 3/5
To start with the ins company couldn't find the claim form but once I managed to get an email contact (person) it was dealt with fairly quickly. We paid upfront and then climbed back directly from the ins co.
May-14 - Lucy J from Essex - 5/5
Paid quickly no problems
May-14 - Sally from Derby - 5/5
They are not cheep.You get what you pay for.They have been brilliant.
May-14 - Naomi from Hampshire - 5/5
I filled in my dog's and my details on an Insurance form and then left it with my vets. They then deal with Petplan direct and all I have to pay is the excess. Obviously if a claim is rejected I would have to cover the full amount but I have never been in that situation with Petplan - I believe they are also the only insurance company my vets deal directly with as they offer such a good and reliable service - they don't seem to try to get out payments. I cannot ever envisage changing my insurance company.
May-14 - India from London - 5/5
Simple form to fill out a s they pay up with no quibbles within a couple of weeks of receiving the form.
May-14 - Laine from Farnham - 5/5
Easy form to fill in Paid out no quibble Puppy Plan had only been in place a few days when first claimed on. Refunded the first excess because we took out the full policy after trial period. Didn't exempt any conditions when going from puppy plan to full

Apr-14 - Naomi M from Southampton - 2/5
"I had problems due to the first part of my claim being made under the 4 weeks' free cover I received when adopting my cat, but making a follow-up claim under the full cover after I had renewed it. Only the first part of the claim was settled, and my cat's condition was then listed as an 'exclusion' on the full cover, despite Petplan having reassured me by phone (when I took out the renewal) that this would not happen."

Mar-14 - Zoe Starr from Milton Keynes - 3/5
"The claim was met in full (less the deductible amount on the policy) and the only reason I have not give a higher score is because of the length of time it took for the company to settle (nearly 3 months). The same company settled previous claims more promptly. My vet does not deal directly with insurance companies, so I have to pay up front and claim it back."
Mar-14 - Wendy B from Birmingham - 4/5

Jan-14 - Karen from Aldershot - 2/5
"The straightforward vet part of the claim was paid very promptly and without any hassle. However, a slight misunderstanding on the physio part of the claim, which could have been very easily rectified once clarification was sent through by the physio, went on for months (3 - 4 months to receive payment), with me having to make numerous phone calls and Chase every step of the way. With each phone call I had to explain the whole history again, the staff had limited notes/information from the claims processors but I couldn't speak directly to them. Very stressful experience! In summary, straightforward claims - excellent, re-assessed claims - appalling service."
Jan-14 - Emma from Essex - 4/5
Paid out in full but took 2 weeks to do so.

Dec-13 - Janet D from Leeds - 4/5
The dog was referred for a broken tooth which the vet decided needed to be removed. She needed to have anaethestic so the vet gave her a check over first and found a small growth inside her eye lid so that was also removed at the same. We paid the vet directly and a claim was put in. A payout was received pretty quickly and everything was paid no query or quibbles. The only gripe to mark it good rather than very good was that 2 excess amounts were deducted
Nov-13 - Sharen from Cambridgeshire - 5/5
"Excellent service, very understanding throughout all claims. My claim was made through the vets with no problems."
Oct-13 - Jenny J from Worcestershire - 1/5
Because my dog had three lumps removed no one knew what they were all removed in one go and because the results came back as all being different they charged me 3 excesses.
Oct-13 - V F from Manchester - 1/5
Overly complicated and did not get paid our on a technicality
Oct-13 - Bobbi from Kilsyth - 3/5
It was at the point where we had 100 excess but also 20% of the claim went to pet plan. We never ever managed to get the money back for her arthritis drugs and her crf drugs were barely covered. If our vet had given drugs more regularly than 6 monthly we would barely gave got anything back. Sadly our cat died before this last claim was submitted This time I have gone with more than for our kittens on a friends recommendation
Oct-13 - Helen from Cambridge - 5/5

Petplan have never quibbled about paying and settle direct with the vet. They keep you updated by text/email as to the progress of the claim. Specialist referral make an admin charge for settling direct with insurance co. but regular vet doesn't.
