Pet Insurance Prices

Our independent research project was to find and document pet insurance price data relating to the most popular breeds in Australia.

Here is a full list of the pet insurance premium prices for dogs we gathered when we looked at the Petplan website on 26th April 2017.

Specifically we chose a one year Ultimate Life Cover policy for a 5 year old male dog living in Victoria.

It is interesting to note that the cheapest breed to insure is about $1,000 per annum and the most expensive breeds are about three times that premium ie about $3,000 per annum.

If you want to compare prices between the major pet insurers in Australia please have a look at our Compare Pet Insurance page.
