At Petplan we’ve made it easy to find the right policy with two types of cover packed with lots of benefits.

Petplan’s Covered For Life® plan provides ongoing cover right into the old age of your pet and our Essential plan provides 12 months cover for your cat.

Covered For Life®


Covered for Life
  • Covers your cat for illness or injury year after year so you can continue to claim for a condition as long as your cat needs treatment, provided you renew your policy without a break in cover
  • We’ll cover up to £4,000 - £12,000 in vet fees annually depending on which level of cover you choose.

12 month cover


Time Limited
  • Covers new illnesses or injuries for 12 months, following which the condition becomes excluded from the policy
  • We’ll cover up to £3,000 in vet fees for 12 months from when the illness or injury was first noticed.

May 2019

My little cat was poorly, long story short it was a small fortune for one visit at the emergency vets. Petplan received our documents from her visit, within 7 days they confirmed the claim and it was paid within 3 days. They are so helpful if they need anything and let you know how to get everything you need to help your claim, not like most insurances, and they paid back all the vet fees minus the excess. Very good company, would recommend for any animal owner!!!
