Best Customer Service I'Ve Received In A Long Time
So, we got a new kitten about 18 months ago. Within a few days of getting her, we realised she wasn't well. vomiting and diarrhoea. We took her to the vet, got her sorted THEN insured her. Shes continued with these symptoms on and off for the past year. Vet can't figure out what it is. She started again with really bad diarrhoea recently. The vet did a load of tests that cost about £800. We contacted Direct Line who said that because it was a condition that started before we got her insured, she might not be covered. Down to underwriters discretion. Anyway, 2 weeks later we hear back. She is covered and here's a cheque for £800!! Chuffed to bits!! We were in a real grey area as to whether they were going to pay out but they did. Great customer service. Top staff.
This is wonderful to hear, Corinna. Thanks for leaving a review.

Easy To Set Up
I've had to use this pet insurance once and it was a really pleasant experience at a stessful time in my life. It was easy to set up and the terms were clear on what would be covered. What more could you want :)
