You might be interested in finding the cheapest insurance policy however the policy must also be useful if not you might be able to utilize the coverage. So it is highly recommended you also consider the coverage, annual benefit, % of vet reimbursement and our rating and review.
The cheapest basic cover (accident only) is from Pet Insurance Australia, which starts from approximately $20 per month. As the plan only covers accidental injuries, you won't have cover for illnesses such as cancer, tick paralysis, skin conditions and more.
The cheapest standard coverage (accident + illness) is surprisingly from Medibank priced at $49.98 per month. The Medibank plan only overs a $8,000 annual benefit limit and we have given them a 3.5/5 star rating. The best standard coverage when taking account price, coverage and ratings is Woolworths followed by Petmed and Bow Wow.
