What our Accident Only policy covers
Our Accident Only policy aims to protect your cat if they have an accident. It doesn’t cover you for any illnesses or diseases they might have.
If your cat has an accident, the policy offers £2,500 per year towards the cost of treating their injuries resulting from that accident. The £2,500 limit applies to each accident your cat might have, and there’s no limit to the number of accidents you can claim for.
So even if your cat is particularly accident prone, your policy could still protect them.
Each accident also has a lifetime limit of £15,000 – as long as you renew your policy. So you can keep making claims over multiple years of continuous cover if your cat needs long-term treatment for their injuries – as long as you don’t go over the £2,500 annual limit.

Pet insurance premiums increase as your pet gets older, as the chance of your pet becoming ill increases. Excesses apply to all our policies and a co-payment is currently payable on claims if you renew your policy after your cat turns 10 years old.
Has your cat been to the vet for anything other than routine vaccinations?
If your cat has been unwell or was injured before, this is known as a pre-existing condition. Pre-existing conditions aren’t covered, unless they have been treatment and symptom free for more than 2 years.
We consider a condition to be pre-existing if your cat showed any signs or symptoms of it before your cover start date or within the waiting period of the policy, whether they needed treatment previously or not.
How much cover do you need?
Knowing how much your cat could cost is important so you’re prepared with the right type of policy and we’re here to help with cover up to £18,000 in a year.
