Your Pet Insurance Policy

The vet helpline gives policyholders access to a national network of RCVS (Royal College of veterinary surgeons) registered veterinary nurses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Call 01 913 1067 to talk to nurses, who are available any time to answer any concerns you may have regarding your pet’s health or general wellbeing. The vet helpline can help offer peace of mind and help with what to do next when your pet is unwell.

Although this service is not intended to replace a consultation with your vet, by calling the vet helpline first, you may be able to help prevent an unnecessary trip to the vet, which can be time-consuming and traumatic for your pet.

Veterinary claims on your Pet Insurance will be subject to a €125 fixed excess which is payable per condition per policy year.

If your pet is aged 5 years or above on the start date of the policy year, there will also be a 15% percentage excess of the remaining amount claimed after the fixed excess has been deducted. Please see your policy booklet for an example.


Yes, you can get a Multi-Pet discount if you have two or more pets.

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 charge a fee of €9.95 for renewals and policies booked online. We work hard to try and minimise any additional charges you may incur in the supply of your policy. 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.

You can cancel your policy within 14 days from receipt of your policy documentation, provided you have not made any claims. If you decide not to continue with the policy cover, you will be refunded your full premium minus the administration fee, which is non-refundable.

If it has been more than 14 days since you have received your policy documents, you can still cancel and receive a partial refund subject to the terms and conditions of your policy if you have paid annually. If you are paying by monthly instalment and you cancel, no further payments will be collected from the cancellation date and there will be no refund of payments already made.

Please note that if you have made a claim on your policy which has been paid, you will not be eligible for a refund of premiums unless your pet has passed away. If you are paying by monthly instalment you will either need to continue making monthly payments or pay the outstanding premium for the remainder of the policy year.

Your Gun Dog Insurance Policy

Veterinary claims will be subject to a €175 fixed excess which is payable per condition per policy year.

If your pet is aged 5 years or above on the start date of the policy year, there will also be a 15% percentage excess of the remaining amount claimed after the fixed excess has been deducted. Please see your policy booklet for an example.

Yes, if you have two or more pets then you are entitled to a Multi-Pet discount. If you are getting a quote and one of your pets is not a gun dog, please contact our customer service line and we will be able to arrange this for you.
