Compare 4Paws pet insurance policies
4Paws offers four different pet insurance policies:
- Time Limited – a time limited, low cost policy that’s designed to help with the costs of veterinary treatment for illness or injury. 4Paws’ Time Limited policy offers cover for up to 12 months per condition and there’s a veterinary fee limit of £3,000 per condition.
- Maximum Benefit – 4Paws’ Maximum Benefit policies offer an enhanced level of cover with an extensive range of added benefits. There’s no time limit on claims, giving you the ability to claim year after year for an ongoing condition, up to the monetary limit for as long as you continue to renew the policy.
- Lifetime – this is 4Paws most comprehensive pet insurance policy. The limit renews every year for as long as you continue to renew your policy. 4Paws also offers Lifetime Contribution Cover. If you contribute 30% towards the cost of each claim, 4Paws can reduce the cost of your policy.
