Pet Insurance Awards 2020

A big congratulations to insurers who took out awards in this year’s Mozo Experts Choice Awards for Pet Insurance. In 2020 we highlighted the best value and best quality pet insurers in the industry and crowned the Pet Insurer of the Year for 2020.

What are the Mozo Experts Choice Awards?

Now in their seventh year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards provide a platform to highlight products in the marketplace we believe offer great value to Australians.

For the 2020 Pet Insurance awards, the Mozo Experts turned their attention to finding the best value policies, collecting pricing for 31 pet insurance providers for your little furry friends.

"According to the RSPCA, there are over 29 million pets in Australia and we have one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world, so it is not surprising that there is a wide range of policy choices when it comes to pet insurance,” said Mozo Experts Choice Awards judge Peter Marshall.   

“The key for any pet owner is finding a policy that will not only cover your pet if the unexpected should happen, but one that also fits your budget. We compared policy features head to head, across different animal breeds and price points to help Australians find top value cover and award those providers that, in our view, offer the best pet insurance in 2020.”
