Just bought two rabbits as first pets for kids & was taken aback a bit but how much costlier their insurance quotes have come out compared to the more poplar pets (ie cats/dogs)! Many insurers don't even offer rabbit cover & the cheapest I was able to find was around £150 each via topcashback per each rabbit after trawling quite a few comparison sites.


Any advice on where I might be able to get cheaper quotes (pref for lifetime cover)


Thanks in advance

    Rabbits are classed as 'exotic pets' Treatment can be expensive.

    Have you checked Bought By Many? The have recently started their own policies and seem to be getting good reviews.

    Don't buy on price, check the cover levels.

    PetPlan, Exotics Direct and HelpUCover are well known for their rabbit insurance. If you chose a new company, there is a risk they will decide to stop selling it and then when it comes time for renewal you will be stuffed. (existing conditions won't be covered and your pet might be too old to switch insurance)

    Don't buy an annual limited policy, only buy a lifetime policy.

    Remember there are neutering costs and vaccination costs. Diet and exercise are very important. Rabbits can live 10+ years if looked after properly.
