Since 1905, we have grown steadily through innovation and acquisition. A look back at our history reveals the significant developments that have made us one of the UK's largest and best known insurers.
Petplan is the UK's leading pet insurance provider and offers essential cover for cat, dog and rabbit owners. As a specialist pet insurance provider, we continually develop our products and services to meet the needs of the owner and their animal. From our Pet Value policy to our Covered for Life plans, Petplan has the right policy for you and your pet.

Petplan Equine offers specialist insurance for horse and rider. We offer flexible benefits so you can tailor your horse insurance policy to meet your personal requirements. While many insurers still limit cover to injury only for horses aged 16 years or over, Petplan Equine covers illness up to 25 years of age - as long as you take out cover before its 20th birthday.
