Pet insurance is offered through Co‑op Insurance Services and underwritten by Allianz Insurance plc.

Applicants for insurance are subject to normal underwriting criteria.

A new customer is someone who has not had a Pet Insurance policy with Co-op Insurance or Co-op Insurance Services in the last 12 months.

†There is no cover for illness which starts in the first 14 days of the policy or any pre-existing conditions. If your pet was ill or injured at any time before your insurance started we will not cover any costs relating to that illness or injury. This is in addition to any specific exclusions on your policy.

Your premium will increase over the lifetime of your policy and terms, conditions and excesses apply and may be varied on renewal. Typically a 20% excess (in addition to the flat excess) is introduced at the pet’s 10th birthday for cats and dogs and 7th birthday for some breeds of dog.
