What is a Pet Insurance Quote?

A pet insurance quote is a temporary snapshot of how much a policy will cost and what it will cover. Pet insurance quotes are typically a monthly estimate of what you’ll be paying for your premium. Different pet insurance plans can have significantly different quotes based on your pet’s breed, age, location and what kind of coverage you’re looking for.

How To Get The Best Quotes

Rather than filling out a new quote form on each provider’s website, pet parents should use a marketplace to see quotes from top providers all in one place. Pawlicy Advisor is the #1 pet insurance marketplace recommended by veterinarians because it provides an objective look at which plan has the best lifetime value (Lifetime Pricing Score) and best coverage for your pet’s breed-specific health risks (Coverage Score). You can see your quotes here.

Key Takeaways

  • Quotes are temporary snapshots of what your expected monthly pet insurance premium will cost based on the info you provided.
