Knose Pet Insurance offers pet insurance with an annual limit of up to $25,000, with no sub-limits for specific situations like paralysis ticks, unlike most pet insurers. It has two simple policies – Cover for Dogs and Cover for Cats – which come with no additional excess charges, a benefit percentage choice of 70, 80 or 90%.
What we like about Knose Pet Insurance:
- Shorter waiting periods: With Knose, your pet will have a waiting period of 14 days for illnesses, and same day cover for accidents. This is almost half the waiting period as most pet insurance policies, which have a standard 30-day waiting period for illnesses.
- You can select the benefit percentage yourself – 70%, 80% or 90% back on vet bills. This means you can choose to pay a little more for treatment if you want cheaper premiums.
- Simple and easy to understand website with two policies: one for cats and the other for dogs.
A few things to keep in mind:
- The minimum entry age for a pet is 6 weeks, which is lower than many other policies that offer accident and illness cover for pets until the age of 8. Knose may not be a good option if you’re insuring an older pet for the first time.
- There is no multi-pet discount so you might want to look elsewhere if you have more than one pet you’d like to insure.
