Tesco Bank offers four types of pet insurance to individuals in the United Kingdom as of 2015: accident and injury coverage, standard coverage, extra coverage and premium coverage. The accident and injury policy covers veterinary care costs if a policyholder's cat or dog is injured in an accident. This policy is available for puppies and kittens who are at least eight weeks old, and there is no maximum age limit for a pet on this policy. Policyholders also have access to Vetfone, which is a helpline providing assistance regarding pet-related questions and issues, notes Tesco.
Standard pet coverage provides the same benefits as the accident and injury policy, and it also provides coverage of up to 3,000 pounds for veterinary care costs for each eligible injury or illness a pet undergoes. With the extra pet insurance policy, the coverage limit is increased for each eligible illness or injury, according to Tesco. The extra policy also features lost pet coverage and dental coverage if a pet suffers dental injury as the result of an accident.
With the premier pet insurance policy, a policyholder's veterinary fees are covered up to a limit of 7,500 to 10,000 pounds, explains Tesco. This policy covers veterinary fees for treatment of both ongoing and one-off illness and injuries. Provided that a policyholder's pet has had an annual checkup and the policyholder has administered all recommended treatment, this policy also covers a pet's dental care expenses.
