What we like about Australian Seniors Pet Insurance
• Australian Seniors pet insurance offers a solid set of benefits. With the basic accident & illness plan 60% of eligible vet bills are covered up to an annual limit of $12,000 and with the essential and top accident and illness plans either 75% or 80% of eligible vet bills are covered to an annual limit of $12,000.
• You have a choice of three accident and illness plans, either “basic ”, “essential” or “top”. With the “essential” plan 75% of vet bills are covered, with basic plan 60% of bills are covered and with the “top” plan 80% of bills are covered. With “top” you will also have coverage for routine care.
• There is no excess on Australian Seniors pet insurance policies.
• Unlike some other pet insurance companies, Australian Seniors does not charge extra for paying on a fortnightly or monthly basis and if a vet visits your pet at home you will be covered.
A few things to consider
• The routine care cover has a cap of only $80 per year, which is lower than other pet health insurers. For many pet owners, the benefits you receive may be well below the additional cost of this coverage.
• Australian Seniors’ premium came in just above average on our cost survey of 20 leading pet insurance plans.

I’m Mitch, and I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching pet insurance, meeting with pet insurance executives, and getting the opinions of vets and pet owners. I wanted to put out information on every pet insurance brand (that I know of), to provide a true overview of the many options available to pet owners.
