TOP TIPS TO GET THE BEST FROM US

REMEMBER THOSE JABS
Whilst we will insure your dog without having had vaccines, if it catches an illness it could have been vaccinated against, we won’t cover your vet costs.

CALL US BEFORE YOU OFFER A REWARD
If your dog goes missing or is stolen we can give you money for a reward – but you must call us first to confirm how much of a reward you can offer.

KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS
If you bought or made a donation for your dog, keep your receipt in case you need to claim back for the amount your paid.

THINK OF US WHEN YOU’RE ABROAD!
If your pet needs veterinary treatment whilst temporarily abroad you must pay the vet whilst you’re there. When you return home, call us immediately and report the claim.

ADMIN FEES
There may be some administration fees included in your vet’s bill, say for filling in a claim form, but we cannot reimburse you for these.

FAQ

What other owners are asking

What is a pre-existing condition?

Like many insurers, we cannot cover your pet against pre-existing conditions. This means that if before this policy starts your pet is already ill, injured or showing signs of illness, injury or being unwell or has been this way before, you will not be able to make any claim under your policy for anything that is connected in any way to the pet’s medical history.

Also, your pet will not be covered for any illness in the first 10 days or any accident in the first 48 hours of your policy starting.

Is dental work covered (i.e. teeth cleaning, extraction)?

Your policy only covers your pet for dental treatment that is the result of an accident e.g. extracting a damaged tooth or reconstructive work. We cannot reimburse you for routine dental work such as tooth cleaning or for the treatment of periodontal disease (gum disease).

What are the excess fees?

You will pay a veterinary excess of £65 for each separate incident. If you have Silver or Gold cover, you will pay this excess once for each incident. If you have Platinum cover, you will pay this excess once for each incident in each period of insurance that you make a claim.

When you took out your policy you may have chosen a voluntary excess of £25, £50 or £100, in addition to the £65 veterinary fee excess.

When you make a claim for 3rd party liability (dogs only) or accidental damage, your excess is £100.

Do I have to pay the vet and you reimburse me?

There are two ways to pay the vet. Either you can pay the vet and then make a claim so we send the money to you. Or, if the vet is happy for us to, we can pay them directly so that you’re not out of pocket at any point.

Do I get a discount if I insure more than one pet with you?

If you have an existing Argos Pet Insurance policy, you can add additional pets and will receive a multi-pet discount. We can only add new pets to existing policies at the moment. You can protect a maximum of 10 pets on a single policy.
