You can get a lifetime cat insurance policy for as little as £8.11 per month according to Compare by Review data in November 2020. *
*This figure is based on lifetime pet insurance for accidents and illnesses for a three-year-old Bengal who has been spayed and chipped, cost £600 and lives at a CM postcode.
The amount you pay for kitten insurance will depend on a range of factors, mainly the type of policy you choose. The more comprehensive the policy, the more expensive your premium will be, for example, accident only cat insurance is far cheaper than lifetime cat insurance. Your postcode will also impact the amount you pay because the cost of vet treatment is higher in some parts of the UK. If you live in an area where treatment is known to cost more, it’s likely that you’ll have to pay a higher premium. Pet insurance for older cats generally costs more too as older cats are at higher risk of developing health problems or illnesses. And finally, if you have a pedigree cat, you can expect to pay more to insure your cat.
