Mr. Peter Gordon



Great Pet Insurer

Great pet insurance with Tesco, been with them since November 2006, never had any serious issues. Very good team!

That's what we like to hear. Thanks for leaving a review, Peter.

Brilliant Service From Start To Finish

We had to claim for vets bills when our cat became sick and was vomitting excessively over a few days. We called Tesco and they dealt with it straight away. We got the money through quickly which was a huge weighted off our mind. Would recommend to anyone.
