RAC  Pet Insurance

RAC pet insurance can be taken out to help you pay eligible medical bills for your dog or cat. RAC makes it easy by only having one pet insurance policy.

With RAC, you can only take out a new insurance policy on a pet aged between 8 weeks and 9 years. If your cat or dog is over 9 years old, you can’t start a new policy; however if they are already insured when they reach 9 years old, they will still be covered. 

RAC’s pet insurance policy also comes with a 28 day cooling off period which starts from the date and time the policy is issued.
