Common Queries

Something’s wrong with my pet, what do I do?

If you’re unsure about whether or not you need to call your vet for an appointment, all Petsure customers have unlimited access to FirstVet. It’s a 24/7 vet video consultation service. Call them from the comfort of your own home without any additional fees.

If the vet you speak to on FirstVet thinks it’s a more serious issue, they’ll suggest what you need to do next.

What can I claim for on my pet insurance?

You can claim for anything that’s covered under your policy. It’s a good idea to check your Confirmation of Cover document and your policy wording before you need to make a claim to understand what you can claim for.

 

Do I have to pay anything when I make a claim?

It depends. When you make a claim, you might be asked to pay some of the bill.

The amount you’ll need to pay will depend on your cover limits, excess and bill share that you chose when you set up your policy.

When it comes to excesses for ongoing conditions, you’ll only be asked to contribute your excess once per policy year for that condition.
