You can get kitten and puppy insurance for pets that are at least 8 weeks old, and also get 24-hour medical advice from the Argos vetfone.
Argos currently does not offer cover for pets other than cats and dogs. Argos pet insurance does not protect against any pre-existing conditions your pet may have, and will only cover dental work that is the result of an accident.
You’ll receive a 10% discount if you insure more than one pet under the same policy, and you can insure up to 10 pets on the one policy.
Your insurance excess is the amount you pay each time you make a claim. This is in addition to the insurance premium you pay as part of your policy.
The size of your excess will depend on the level of cover you have, the age of your pet and the nature of your claim. There is a standard £65 excess fee for each vet visit across all levels of cover, but you can choose to pay a voluntary excess of £25, £50 or £100 in order to cut the cost of your premium.
You will also need to pay a £100 excess for any third party liability or accidental damage claim.
