Cover details

Choose from four levels of pet insurance

Tesco pet insurance options currently offer four policies, ranging from Accident and Injury cover to Premier Cover. Each policy includes competitive cover and renewable benefits. There is a useful guide to the types of benefits available below.

There is also excess that is payable, per condition per policy year. This is fixed until the end of your policy and starts from £60 depending on how much you choose to pay. Please note, once your pet has reached a certain age, it will change from a defined amount to a percentage contribution. For dog insurance, third party liability claims on property damage require an excess of £250.

The policy booklet has the full terms and conditions. For more information visit the Tesco’s official website.
