Compare Bought By Many pet insurance policies
Bought By Many welcomed pet insurance to their offerings in 2017. The six policies that they currently sell were designed using comments from over 40,000 pet owners. These comments helped them identify common issues with existing policies. As a result of this, Bought By Many’s policies are completely innovative and attempt to fix the things that pet owners dislike about other pet insurance policies. One of these issues being the inability to insure pets with recent pre-existing conditions. Some insurers will cover pre-existing conditions provided your pet recovered from them at least two years ago but Bought By Many believe that this isn’t good enough. To overcome this, they were the first UK pet insurer to offer a ‘Pre-Existing’ policy that includes:
- Cover for past medical issues – they’ll provide cover for your pet as long as it has been medication, advice and treatment free for three months before the policy start date.
- Vet fees – £500 of vet fee cover for pre-existing conditions, which will increase to £1,000 after the first year if you don’t claim for the condition. Also, new conditions are covered up to £7,000 each year.
- Comprehensive cover – liability insurance included as standard and farewell cover if your pet has to be put to sleep.
If your pet has a pre-existing condition but hasn’t needed medication, professional advice or treatment in the past two years, they can be covered on any of Bought By Many’s pet insurance policies.
Bought By Many offers five other types of pet insurance policies:
- Complete – the most comprehensive type of policy they offer – up to £15,000 of vet fee cover, dental cover included and more.
- Regular – a lifetime policy that offers up to £7,000 of vet fee cover for a year and the option of no excess for pets under 9.
- MoneyBack – a lifetime policy with up to £7,000 cover for vet fees. For each year you don’t make a claim, you can get 20% of your premium paid back.
- Fixed For Life – if you purchase this policy before your pet turns 2, the premium will be fixed for your pet’s life. It will never increase, even if you claim.
- Value – conditions are covered for up to £3,000 of lifetime vet fee cover.
All of the benefits of each policy type are detailed in the table below.
|Benefit||Value||Fixed For Life||Pre-existing||MoneyBack||Regular||Complete|
