Hi

just looking an alternative to Tesco pet insurance, our policy doubled from one year to the next for our dog who is now 2 years old with no health problems

    Wouldn’t this be better placed in the pet care section?

    There are hundreds of alternatives and so it really depends on if you want the expensive but high cover of the likes of PetPlan and knowing premiums won't increase due to your claims or a cheap and cheerful product which will become a lot less cheap or cheerful if you have to make claims and a problem if its for chronic conditions.

    If your where insured  with pet plan I think there is a company that offers higher cover at less cost with similar conditions attached (AGRIA) but do check for yourself.Once any pet has been treated for any condition changing the insurers will mean it won't be covered for this if it occurs again

    New customers get an introductory reduction to encourage you to join up. 

    The second year you lose that plus you have the  additional annual increase to cover increased running  costs. So a double whammy. 

    Breed, age, previous claims and post code( which indicates vet charges) all affect how your premium is calculated. 

    Get quotes and check out reviews ( cheap can be cheap for a reason) and make your choice.
