Pet Insurance & Gun Dog Insurance Payments

We understand that everybody’s different, so you can choose the payment method that suits you best. Check out our range of options.

You can choose to pay your premium in full or by instalment by:

  • Monthly direct debit payments
  • Debit / credit card


The Claims Administrator can arrange to pay most veterinary surgeons directly in the case of a vet fees claim. Please ask your vet if they are happy to do this, and the claims administrator will take care of the rest.

You can pay for your policy in full or by instalment by either credit or debit card. Choosing the monthly instalment method allows you to spread the cost of your policy over the year at no extra charge as this service is interest free.

Your pet is one of a kind! When the insurer calculates your quote, they use a number of different factors; for example, your pet’s age, sex and breed as well as your postcode to provide a quote that is unique to your pet.

This allows the insurer to keep our prices as competitive as possible. At each renewal, the cost of cover is recalculated, and we will email you with a quote. If you have had a claim paid to you this can impact your renewal price.

We work hard to try and minimise any additional charges you may incur in the supply of your policy. We charge a fee of €9.95 for renewals and policies booked online. If you choose to book your policy through our call centre, the fee is also €9.95. If you would like a text confirmation with your policy details the fee is €0.99.

Yes, we will aim to automatically renew (auto-renew) your policy when it runs out unless you tell us not to. Each year we will notify you by email 5 weeks before the renewal date of your policy and tell you about any changes to the premium or the policy terms and conditions.

If you do not want us to auto-renew your policy, just call us on 0818 22 22 22, otherwise, we will collect the renewal premiums from your credit or debit card.

The automatic renewal service relies on your credit/debit card details still being valid. If your credit/debit card details have changed within the last 12 months you must contact us to process the booking over the phone. If you do not receive confirmation of your new policy by your renewal date please contact us.
