What types of pet insurance does Pet-Insurance.co.uk offer?
Pet-Insurance.co.uk specialise in pet insurance for dogs and cats. It aims to offer straightforward, no-fuss cover from two policies - Standard or Lifetime. Pet-Insurance.co.uk is a trading name of The Equine and Livestock Insurance Company Limited (E&L), which has been in business for over 70 years.
Here's an overview of the two policies:
Standard – a time-limited policy, covering each medical condition up to £4,000, for 12 months. The policy can be renewed at the end of the 12 months period, but any medical conditions your pet has developed during the year may not be covered on renewal.
Lifetime – this policy covers each medical condition up to a certain amount for the lifetime of the pet. The condition will be covered on renewal.
Pet-Insurance.co.uk also offer a 45% introductory discount for new customers and an extra 10% multi-pet discount.
An important feature of Pet-Insurance.co.uk's cover is that you only pay excess on vet bills, not on any other claim.
How much does pet insurance cover from Pet-Insurance.co.uk cost?
With almost all pet insurance companies, the cost of pet insurance varies widely depending factors like the age and breed of your pet, and which part of the UK you live in.
Pet-Insurance.co.uk's lifetime cover offers a lower level of vet fee cover than some of the providers on our list of the best pet insurers, which indicates its prices may be lower than rivals' highest levels of cover - or similar to other providers' equivalent policies.

Are promotional codes available for Pet-Insurance.co.uk
We could not find any promotional codes, however, Pet-Insurance.co.uk does offer an introductory discount of up to 45% for new customers. Be aware that the discount may not carry over when you renew a policy so you might see premiums jump after your first year.
Some cashback sites may offer money back on Pet-Insurance.co.uk policies.
Is behaviour training covered by Pet-Insurance.co.uk?
In Pet-Insurance.co.uk's list of exclusions, it says: "Any costs arising from vicious tendencies or behavioural problems not related to illness shown by your pet."
We could not find many other applicable mentions of pet behaviour so it looks like training is not covered.
