Whether it’s taking a tumble down the stairs or getting stuck in a peculiar place, our pets love to get themselves into all sorts of trouble. But sometimes our pets hurt more than their pride and wind up taking the trip to the vet.

1300 Insurance knows all too well about the financial toll vet bills can take on the average budget, which is why they developed an accident-only policy to help cover the cost.

And it looks like that policy was a clear winner in the eyes of our expert judges, as it just received a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award^.

"If you’re a pet owner, you’re bound to have experienced a scare at least once in your pet’s life, which can often mean forking out on vet bills. 1300 Insurance can help take care of the financial burden, leaving you to focus on making sure your pet gets back on track," said expert judge, Peter Marshall.

"1300 Insurance received an award in the Exceptional Value Accident Cover Pet Insurance category for offering a competitively priced policy, given the level of cover a customer would receive."

Accident-only Insurance* 

The Accident-only Pet Insurance policy received a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award^ for Exceptional Value Accident Cover Pet Insurance. As the name suggests, this type of insurance covers your pet for injuries they may sustain from a number of accidents, including a motor vehicle accident, spider or snake bites and electrocution. And by having an Accident-only Insurance policy on your side, you could be covered for things like surgery, hospitalisation or even a required consultation. Other need to knows about this policy include:

  • Cover for up to 75% of vet bills, up to $10,000 every year
  • $0 excess on claims
  • Option to use the services of any vet in Australia (other than yourself)
  • Up to $500 emergency boarding for your pet if you are hospitalised

However as this is just an accident-only policy, there are a few things that are not covered, some of these include:

  • Pre-existing conditions
  • Dental care
  • Day to day care, like prescription dietary food or vitamins
  • Certain treatments, like cell-replacement therapies
  • Ambulance fees
  • Elective treatments, like desexing 
  • Your pet being injured through negligence

It’s important to know the ins and outs of every insurance policy you take out, to ensure you won’t ever be left out of pocket. You can do this by heading over to the 1300 Insurance website and having a read through their Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
