Leading independent financial research company Defaqto has awarded pet insurance provider Animal Friends Insurance a 5 Star Rating for its Prestige product.
Defaqto compares pet insurance products across the whole market and their assessment focuses on the quality and comprehensiveness of cover offered by providers rather than the price. They look at the range of different features, benefits and levels of cover for policies and score each from 1 to 5.
The top 5 Star Rating offers consumers the confidence that this product is one of the most comprehensive in terms of features and benefits in the UK market.
Mike Powell, Defaqto’s Insight Analyst for General Insurance, said,”Looking for the right pet insurance can be daunting. There are so many insurance policies out there and people too often choose simply on price. That can be a costly decision if they later discover that they did not get the cover they needed. It is important for consumers to focus on the entire package when comparing pet insurance options to ensure they have the right cover for their needs.
Defaqto Star Ratings for Pet Insurance help inform consumers’ purchasing decisions by providing an instant, independent assessment of the feature quality and comprehensiveness of every product on the market. A 5 Star Rating signifies that a policy is an excellent product, offering a comprehensive range of features and benefits.”
Animal Friends is one of the UK’s leading pet insurance providers in the UK (Datamonitor 2013) and the company has just been voted Pet Insurance Provider of the Year 2014 at the Consumer Moneyfacts Awards.
Managing Director of Animal Friends Elaine Fairfax said: “We are delighted to be awarded the Defaqto 5 Star Rating. We pride ourselves on offering our customers a range of products that allows everyone, regardless of their circumstances, to be able to afford pet insurance. The Prestige policy is our most comprehensive product and to receive the highest level of rating for this reflects just how much the policy offers.”
