From home cooked meals to a new toy every week, there’s no denying that Aussies love their non-human family members. It’s not just everyday Aussies who want the best for their four-legged friends, though.

Pet Insurance Australia believes all dogs and cats deserve to be protected against life’s unexpected moments. It’s this commitment to providing more affordable pet insurance that’s just landed them two 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Pet Insurance Awards.

This is the third year in a row that Pet Insurance Australia has scooped up multiple Mozo Experts Choice Awards^. This year the provider won awards for Exceptional Value Accident and Illness Pet Insurance and Exceptional Value Comprehensive Pet Insurance. 

"This is our third year to hand out Mozo Experts Choice Awards for pet insurance and Pet Insurance Australia have come out on top yet again, receiving an impressive two awards" said Mozo Expert Judge, Peter Marshall.

About Pet Insurance Australia’s award-winning pet insurance policies

Pet Insurance Australia received 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Awards^ across two of the Exceptional Value Award categories. Let’s take a closer look at the provider’s award winning policies.

Pet Insurance Australia Comprehensive Cover*
  • 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award-winner^
  • $15,000 annual benefit limit
  • 80% of eligible bills covered

With a $15,000 annual benefit limit and cover for up to 80% of vet bills, it’s not hard to see why Pet Insurance Australia’s Comprehensive Cover received a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Exceptional Value Accident and Illness Pet Insurance. The policy also comes with up to $1,000 cover for tick paralysis, up to $300 cover for consultations and vet visits and up to $2,600 cover for cruciate ligament conditions. Specified accidental injuries are covered, as well as illnesses. ‘Specified accidental injuries’ relate to injuries arising from an accident as a consequence of or resulting from covered incidents, which occur during the policy period. For example, motor vehicle accidents, burns and an allergic reaction to specified insect and arachnid bites. Read the product disclosure statement on the Pet Insurance Australia website for a full list of specified accidental injuries. It should be noted that this policy does not cover routine care. If you want your furry friend to be covered for this, you may have to consider getting Pet Insurance Australia’s Major Medical Cover.

Pet Insurance Australia Major Medical Cover*
  • 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award-winner^
  • $15,145 annual benefit limit
  • Routine care cover

Another award-winning policy, Pet Insurance Australia’s Major Medical Cover received a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Exceptional Value Comprehensive Pet Insurance. This policy covers 80% of eligible vet bills and comes with a $15,145 annual benefit limit. Cover is similar to Pet Insurance Australia’s Comprehensive Cover, but with some slightly higher sublimits and the inclusion of routine care cover for certain preventative healthcare treatments. You should be able to find a list of routine care covered on your Certificate of Insurance. Some higher sub-limits include up to $1,200 cover for tick paralysis and emergency boarding (compared with up to $1,000 with the Comprehensive Cover policy).

*Terms, conditions, exclusions, limits and sub-limits may apply to any of the insurance products shown on the Mozo website. These terms, conditions, exclusions, limits and sub-limits could affect the level of benefits and cover available under any of the insurance products shown on the Mozo website.
