Keeping your beloved little furry friend’s health in check is important. But even when we do our very best to keep them safe and healthy, accidents and illnesses can still occur.

That’s where Woolworths steps in. Woolworths pet insurance covers 80% of eligible pet bills if your dog or cat is injured accidentally or falls ill.

They offer three policies to suit all budgets: Basic Cover, Standard Cover and Comprehensive Cover. When considering which options offered the best value for the most extensive collection of insurance features, our judges couldn’t look past the comprehensive cover from Woolies in the 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Awards for Pet Insurance^.

“If you own a cat or dog and are looking for great value pet cover, it pays to shop around with so many choices out there offering different features and prices that may or may not be suitable for your pet.”

“Woolworths offers some of Australia’s best value pet insurance, and after comparing a range of quotes they sat on top for best overall value for both cats and dogs. This, coupled with bonus lifestyle perks like 10% off your Woolworths grocery shop, making Woolies a win-win all round.”

About Woolworths’ Mozo Experts Choice Award win

Woolworths was awarded a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the Exceptional Value Comprehensive Pet Insurance category for its Comprehensive Cover Pet Insurance policy. For this category, our judges identified five comprehensive products that are usually amongst the most affordable while still providing good benefit levels. So, just what did Woolworths’ policy have to offer?

About the Mozo Experts Choice Awards

For many Australians, it can be tricky to pinpoint the financial products that could be suitable. That’s where the Mozo Experts Choice Awards come in. Every year, our Mozo Experts dive headfirst into a pool of financial products to highlight those that provide value for money and undeniable quality.

With this year’s Pet Insurance awards, our judges analysed pricing and cover information from 32 different pet insurance providers. This was then followed by a detailed price analysis, where they gathered quotes for a range of common dog and cat breeds.
