Bridget for Bentley

I took out pet insurance online from 11:59pm on the day before I collected Bentley. I had a 3 hour drive home and didn't want to take any chances. Since then I've submitted a couple of claims for his vaccination and desexing, and the claims process is a breeze. I have Bentley's details set up in the Portal and I just log in, upload a photo of the vet's invoice, and submit the claim. I receive a text message within a few hours, confirming that the claim has been received and the next thing I know the payment goes directly into my bank account. It really is easy!!

testimonial-uno-min

Chloe for Uno

Before choosing to insure with Petinsurance.com.au, I did a lot of research with other companies and found myself comparing policies to ensure I got the best cover possible for Uno and at a reasonable price.
Over the course of the past four months, I have had to make a claim twice due to an unfortunate and very serious illness Uno had, and was so relieved at how simple the claim process is and had no issues receiving my reimbursement. I am very pleased with this company and would recommend it to anyone looking for pet insurance!

testimonial-rio-min

Julie for Rio

Animals are everything good and pure, unconditional love and unspoiled affection. Owning a pet is a privilege and obligation. Loving your pet means looking after them and pet insurance is a great way to be a responsible pet owner.

testimonial-avery-min

Jamie-Lee for Avery

I love my dog Avery, and his health is paramount to me. I like knowing my happy go lucky boy is covered for any accidents he may have.

testimonial-jasper_lloyd-min

Tina for Jasper Lloyd

Making a claim for my Jasper Lloyd through PetInsurance.com.au could not have been easier. Vet visit, paid the bill, scanned the forms and away we were! I kid you not - that simple! Even Jasper Lloyd was laughing at how quick the process was… as you can see!! Both of us are delighted with the company :)

Annette for Tilly

Annette for Tilly

I was always planning to get Tilly insured, but hadn’t got around to getting cover. I came across a Petinsurance.com.au ad on a flight to Melbourne and got a quote on my mobile while I waited for a cab. It was cheaper than I thought. So I applied and got her covered. It was so easy, and I earn Velocity Points too!

Naomi for Eric and Jenny

Naomi for Eric & Jenny

I live near the national park, so I always make sure the dogs have cover, but I didn’t really want to pay for Eric and Jenny as they never leave the house. I saw an ad on Facebook talking about Indoor Cat Insurance and got a quote to see how much I would be up for, I was surprised at how cheap it was, so all four of my fur babies have insurance now.

testimonial-jesscia-for-yeezy-min

Jessica for Yeezy

I had to travel overseas and I had only just brought home my new Labradoodle puppy (Yeezy). I woke up in the middle of the night on my trip feeling worried that something would happen to him. I compared a few pet insurers and found Petinsurance.com.au had Puppy Cover. I applied for cover and received the paperwork within minutes. It was such a relief.

Michael for Cougar

Michael for Cougar

I wanted to make sure Cougar could run around and continue doing what he loves without having to worry about any associated vet bills. He’s getting older, so I want to be able to give him the best care if anything happens. I was referred to Petinsurance.com.au by a friend. It was quick and easy to apply online and I was very happy with the price.
