Petplan, the UK’s number one pet insurer, has been crowned best insurance provider in the market in the seventh annual Your Cat and Your Dog Product Awards.
It’s the sixth consecutive year Your Cat and Your Dog readers have voted Petplan number one, in response to a survey completed by thousands of pet owners.
Head of Marketing at Petplan Isabella von Mesterhazy said: “To be independently voted number one provider by pet owners means so much, particularly as this is the sixth time we have been awarded this honour.
“Petplan’s Covered for Life policy is the original lifetime policy – we were the first insurer to offer this type of policy and cover.
“This, combined with more than 36 years’ experience in the pet insurance marketplace, means Petplan truly understands what pet owners need and want from their pet insurance.
“We settle 97% of claims successfully and 90% of customers renew each year.
“Moreover, we paid out over £180 million in claims in 2013, the majority directly with the vet, which leaves owners able to concentrate on supporting their pet back to full health rather than worrying about vet bills.”
