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.
- Complimentary VetChat consultations
Connect with experienced New Zealand registered vets to help your pet within minutes, via online chat or video call. Get up to 4 consults per month to use during your current policy period. Visit VetChat to learn more. T&Cs apply.^
- 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.
Dogs change lives, and so can you. By purchasing an AA Pet Insurance policy you’ll help support the dogs of the New Zealand Epilepsy Assist Dog Trust, which will enable people living with severe epilepsy to achieve independence. With your help, we’re proud to play a small part in the life-changing effects of these awesome canine companions.
Have a question?
