Is Pet Insurance Worth It

There’s no doubt that we love our pets. In New Zealand, 58% of us own some kind of pet, and we love spending money on them too. Pets bring so much into our lives, whether it’s the unconditional love and loyalty we receive from our dogs, the stress-relief provided by watching our new kitten’s funny antics or from stroking our cat and hearing them purr, or the exercise that we’re forced into at ungodly times of the day by a puppy that’s raring to go! But how many of us invest in pet insurance for our furry friends? And how many of us wonder when it comes to paying for pet insurance, is it worth it?

Petplan has been providing affordable pet insurance for the pet owners of New Zealand since 2004, and we like to think that we offer value-for-money policies that enable you to pick the level of cover that you’re comfortable with, both in terms of coverage and cost. There’s no doubt that the cost of pet insurance is an important consideration when owners take out cover, and we want to ensure that you get the right level of cover at the right price.

New Zealand Pet Insurance You Can Rely On

Our pets are more than just animals to us; they’re an integral part of our family. Whether you have a cat, a dog, a horse or any other kind of pet, they give us far more than just companionship. They provide us with love, loyalty and a reason to get up in the morning. But pet ownership also has its issues too, especially when our pets are sick or injured. And that’s where Petplan can help. As one of the leading providers of pet insurance plans in New Zealand, we’re here to help you through those unexpected moments when owning a pet can cause stress rather than enjoyment.

By taking pet insurance with Petplan, you can rest assured that your pet is covered should the unimaginable happen. Our policies are designed to help you through times of trouble and alleviate the stress that comes with worrying about how to pay mounting vet’s bills. In fact, having our pet insurance for dogs and cats could mean the difference between agreeing to treatment or having to decline the veterinary assistance that your pet needs. We don’t want you to have to make that decision.

Why Choose Petplan for Your Pet Insurance?

Pet insurance policies are a relatively new product in New Zealand, and we’re proud to have brought the best pet insurance NZ has to offer to the market. Petplan itself began life way back in 1976 in the United Kingdom and is now one of the biggest names in pet insurances. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to bring this much-needed product to New Zealand in 2004, and since then we’ve never looked back. We love giving pet owners like you the chance to ensure that your precious pets can be appropriately cared for should disaster strike.

However, while there are now many pet insurance providers on the market – not all companies and policies are equal. Some companies offer cut-price pet insurance, but do they provide the comprehensive coverage that you need? At Petplan, we’ve developed a range of policies to cover a variety of situations, so that you can choose the option that best meets your needs and your budget. After all, what’s the point of insurance if it doesn’t give you the benefits that you need?

The Benefits of Insuring Your Pets with Petplan

As pet owners ourselves, we want you to be completely comfortable with the cover and benefits provided by our policies. When you insure with Petplan NZ you can expect:

  • Affordable pet health cover. We don’t want to price our policies out of the market, but we do want to give you value-for-money.
  • Ongoing cover for the lifetime of your pet. We offer genuine ongoing cover for the lifetime of your pet, as long as you don’t take a break in cover.
  • Peace of mind. There’s no longer any need to make a decision about whether you go ahead with a treatment as you have the peace of mind that your bills will be taken care of.
  • Low out of pocket expense. We keep excesses low. There’s no point in having cover if you can’t afford to pay the excess.
  • Minimal waiting time. We’re known for our timely payouts.
We are a member of the Insurance Council of NZ and adhere to the Fair Insurance Code,
which provides you with assurance that we have high standards of service to our customers.
