Lavish extra benefits at no extra cost

Pet overseas travel insurance

Take the stress out of your pet’s overseas travel with you. If your pet suffers an accidental injury or illness while it's in New Zealand or Norfolk Island with you, we’ll pay up to the benefit percentage for the cost of vet treatment, up to the benefit limit and if applicable, up to the annual per condition limit.

Paralysis tick benefit

We hope it never happens, but if your pet gets bitten by a paralysis tick, we’ll help cover the costs of treating it for any conditions caused directly by the bite. When you claim, we’ll pay up to the benefit percentage for this treatment cost subject to a 30-day waiting period and your annual sub-limit.

Essential euthanasia

No one wants this day to come, but in some cases, your vet may decide that euthanasia is an essential and the most humane treatment for your pet. If euthanasia was as a result of a condition covered under your policy, we’ll pay up to the benefit percentage for this treatment cost.

Emergency boarding

If you’re hospitalised for over five days in a row, or you need emergency accommodation due to family violence, we’ll help pay up to the benefit sub-limit for the cost of putting your pet up at a licensed kennel or cattery. That way, you can ensure your cat or dog is treated like royalty – just as they are at home.

Dental illness

If your pet suffers from gingivitis, abscesses, or needs their teeth removed for medical reasons, we'll pay up to the benefit percentage for the vet treatment (up to the annual sub-limit), provided you've held your policy for two consecutive years. This benefit applies to the Sovereign and Imperial plans and doesn't cover dental illnesses that were present during the two-year waiting period.
