Choose from three levels of pet insurance

Debenhams’ pet insurance options include three levels of cover, Premier, Standard and Essential, which covers veterinary fees as well as additional benefits for your pet. There is a useful guide to the types of benefits available.

The claim limit for each insurance option is subject to excesses, which are the amounts you have to pay for each claim. For pets under the age of 9 at the start of veterinary treatment, the excess ranges from £50 – £150. For pets over 9, excess ranges from £150 -£250.  Excess for third party liability is £250 as standard.

The policy documents have the full terms and conditions. For more information visit M&S’official website.
