What we cover

AA Pet Insurance provides cover for dogs, so you can get the treatment needed if your dog is ill or injured.

AA Pet Insurance for cats is designed to help cover the costs of unexpected vet bills so that you can rest easy.

Unlike most pet insurers in New Zealand, we can cover some pre-existing conditions if your pet has been symptom-free for 18 months.

AA Pet Insurance Benefits

  • AA Member discount
    • AA Members can receive a 5% discount on each policy – simply provide a valid AA Membership number on application*.

  • We cover up to 80% of your eligible vet bills
    • If your pet gets sick or has an accidental injury, we’ll reimburse up to 80% of your eligible vet costs up to your benefit limit.

  • Flexible cover options
    • Choose how much you pay by selecting your benefit limit and excess.

  • No upper age limit once insured
    • With us, you can insure pets that are as young as 8 weeks old up to their 9th birthday. Once insured, your pet is covered for their lifetime as long as there’s no break in cover.

  • Some pre-existing conditions may be covered after 18 months
    • Unlike most pet insurers in New Zealand, we can cover some pre-existing conditions depending on whether they are considered a temporary or chronic condition. If your pet has a temporary condition that occurred or existed before you took out the policy (or arises during the relevant waiting period) but has been symptom-free for 18 months, you can apply for your pet to be covered for that condition under the policy.

  • Optional add-on for routine care
    • Our Paw Care add-on allows you to claim for regular vet items like vaccinations, microchipping, registration costs, flea control, regular blood tests, and more.

  • We’ve made claims easy
    • We have a quick and simple online claims process. Simply log into your Claims Portal to lodge a claim and upload your claim supporting documents. No printing and filling out paper forms needed. Your claim will be processed quickly, and we’ll email you with updates and make payment directly to your bank account.

This is a summary only. Benefit limits, sub-limits, conditions, waiting periods and exclusions apply. For full details please refer to the Policy Wording.


How much difference could pet insurance make?

With no pet insurance in place, unexpected treatment costs could leave you in a difficult position financially. However, never fear! 'Unlucky' the dog is here to help you understand some of the potential vet costs you and your pet may face if you run into any of these common illnesses or accidents.

AA Pet Insurance partner change FAQs

AA Pet Insurance changed its partner from Allianz Partners to PetSure (Australia) Pty Ltd (PetSure) in July 2021. This partner change will only impact customers who have an existing policy number starting with a P. We will be in touch with you at your renewal date.

PetSure is a specialist pet insurance provider with more than 20 years’ experience. Their team of passionate pet people are committed to providing the best possible healthcare outcomes for pets and their owners. Both PetSure and Allianz Partners policies are underwritten by The Hollard Insurance Company Pty Ltd.

We’re unable to automatically transfer your policy from Allianz Partners to PetSure. To continue to insure your pet with AA Pet Insurance you’ll need to take out a new policy with PetSure. At your next renewal date, we’ll email you with details on how to do this.

As long as you take out a new policy through PetSure with no break in cover, any waiting periods you have already served on your existing policy will not apply again, so you will have continuous coverage for eligible conditions claimed for under your current policy.

We’ve kept it simple: one plan, with flexible options. You can choose your annual limit, excess, and even include an add-on to suit your budget and needs.

Nothing until you hear from us. As a current AA Pet Insurance customer, you will receive an email from Allianz prior to your AA Pet Insurance renewal date with details around the next steps.

If you have any questions and would like to speak to a member of our team, please call us on 0800 700 555.
