What type of insurance does Petplan offer?
Petplan is one of the UK's biggest pet insurers and you can get a quote for cover on its website. Along with policies you may expect for dogs, cats and rabbits it also offers cover for puppies, horses and breeders.
Some of its products are offered under slightly different brands, for example, Petplan Equine covers horses, ponies and riders. Its breeder insurance scheme enables breeders to give the new owners of dogs they sell four weeks of free Petplan cover, which includes up to £4,000 vet fee cover.
It also acts as an introducer for ExoticDirect, which is owned by Bought By Many and covers all kinds of exotic animals.
Petplan offers a choice between three policies for dogs, cats and puppies - 12 Months Essential, Covered For Life Classic and Covered For Life Ultimate.
They all offer cover for vet fees and loss or theft. The 12 Months policy will only cover an illness for up to 12 months whereas the Covered For Life options are what many insurers refer to as lifetime policies, which means they can cover an illness through the life of a pet.

Covered For Life Ultimate is Petplan's most comprehensive policy and includes up to £12,000 of vet fee cover, £3m for third-party liability and £2,000 of cover for death is included as standard.
