What is a Lifetime Pricing Score?

Your Lifetime Pricing Score is a Pawlicy Advisor exclusive feature that estimates a pet insurance plan’s price over your pet’s life. Premiums can increase as you pet ages or after incidents are claimed (as these indicate growing risk), however the rate at which they increase varies drastically between plans and providers. Pawlicy Advisor calculates a pet insurance plan’s lifetime pricing score to estimate what we expect your pet insurance plan to cost each year. By doing this, we can save pet parents up to 83% on their pet’s insurance policies during their lifetime!

NOTE: The most affordable plan today is not always the most affordable 5 or 10 years from now as your pet ages. This is why you should look at your Lifetime Pricing Score to help find the best plan. With Pawlicy Advisor, each quote’s Lifetime Pricing Score is personalized to your pet’s breed, age, and location.

How Lifetime Pricing Scores Work

The higher a lifetime pricing score is, the more affordable we expect the policy to be across your pet’s lifetime.. Your lifetime pricing score helps you choose a pet insurance policy that will give you the most bang for your buck by saving you money from unexpected, dramatic price hikes down the line.
