The Post Office has today increased it's growing range of financial services products with the addition of a new pet insurance policy.

Underwritten by Axa, Post office pet insurance is designed to meet the real needs of UK cat and dog owners with a comprehensive policy that covers vet bills up to a maximum of £5,000 per condition. With the majority of pet insurance claims under £5,000 most pet owners don't need to pay extra for higher cover limits.

Unlike many policies, Post Office Pet Insurance won't stop paying out after 12 months, so pets can be covered for long-term health conditions. And with no age limit, cats and dogs of all ages can be covered against illness and accident.

Head of per insurance at the Post Office, Emma Baunach commented... "Dogs and cats are often a huge part of the family - with 11% of people saying they would re-mortgage their house to pay for a vital vet bill! To avoid such drastic measures, owners should look for a suitable pet insurance policy. But they must remember to check the cover features of policies rather than just choose the cheapest option, as this may not offer the right level of cover for their animal."

The Post Office policy also comes with added benefits at no extra cost. These include:

  • Cover for taking pets abroad
  • Emergency kennel and cattery costs covered
  • 12 months free PetBack Protect membership to the Missing Pets Bureau. This ensures that everything possible is done to find lost and stolen pets.

Owners with more than one pet can also enjoy a 5% discount on the additional premium for other pets.
