Petplan has been crowned the UK’s best pet insurance provider at the Consumer Moneyfacts awards last month.

Voted for by more than 17,000 consumers, the awards recognise the best financial products available to consumers in the UK.

Director of Petplan Neil Brettell said they were ecstatic to win an award that is voted by consumers.

“The award is great recognition for the fantastic job that our team at Petplan does to keep pets healthy and owners happy.

“Our policies truly do what they say. They ensure that a pet or horse can get the best possible treatment throughout its life without the owner having to worry about the cost.

“It’s great to be recognised for the service that we’ve been providing to the nation’s pets for over 35 years and horses for over 20 years.”

A spokesman for Moneyfacts Group Plc said: “The awards are presented annually for product excellence and outstanding service, they cover products from across the range of financial services.

“Winning a Moneyfacts award is certainly something to shout about.”
