As part of a new feature on Compare Pet Care, we’re going to be publishing pet insurance quote data to support our pet insurance comparison.
Whilst price alone is not a deciding factor on which insurer you will select for your pets insurance, it is a very important consideration for the vast majority when shopping around for pet insurance. Each week we will fetch insurance quotes for a different pet and breed, from a wide range of insurance companies to try and give a complete picture of the average policy price, and a bit of extra guidance for pet owners.
This week we have retreieved quotes for a 1 year old Labrador Retreiver, here’s the complete set of details we used:
