Many people now use price comparison sites to get insurance quotes.
However pet insurance is complex and it is important you take care when getting quotes from these sites, or you may easily end up with a policy which doesn’t meet your needs.
There are seven price comparison sites which will give you quotes for pet insurance policies (see table below for details).
But only 31 out of approximately 65 pet insurance companies (who offer pet insurance in the UK) are listed on price comparison sites.
Popular pet insurance companies which are not listed on any price comparison sites include Petplan, Tesco, Direct Line, and The Kennel Club.
28 out of these 31 pet insurance companies are listed on Money Supermarket or Go Compare.
The major drawback of price comparison sites is that they focus on price so be careful to research all policies carefully before making a final decision.
In our opinion the best way to use price comparison sites is after you have done your research. Then if several of your shortlisted policies can be found on one price comparison site then use it to save time when getting quotes.
